Ross Young is an analyst for Display Supply Chain Consultants. As such, his reporting is usually based on indications from the supply chain similar to analysts such as Ming-Chi Kuo.

The new device is expected to be visually identical to the current iPhone SE. This means the design is still based on the iPhone 8, with a 4.7-inch display, Home button, and Touch ID. The changes this time around are expected to come in the form of 5G connectivity and a new A15 chip inside.

This aligns with previous reporting from Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, who has said that Apple is currently aiming to hold a virtual event in March or April to announce the iPhone SE 3.

MacDailyNews Take: A $399 iPhone SE with 5G capability will entice an untold number of Android settlers to finally ditch their sorry situation and upgrade to a real iPhone.
