Last year, Apple launched the iPhone 12 series and for the first time, adding 5G support to its smartphones. Now, the Cupertino-based tech giant is going all-in with the next-generation connectivity support.
This year, all the models in the iPhone 13 series will have 5G connectivity support, similar to iPhone 12 lineup. But not only that, all the iPhones getting launched in 2022 will have 5G connectivity, including the next-generation iPhone SE.
While the Apple iPhone SE 2022 will be getting 5G support, the company is expected to get rid of the iPhone Mini model next year as the demand for the model with a smaller screen didn’t meet the company’s expectations.
A new report from Nikkei Asia claims that the upcoming iPhone SE, which will get launched in the first half of 2022, will come powered by the Apple A15 Bionic chipset which will be powering this year’s iPhone models. It will also pack a Qualcomm Snapdragon X60 modem to enable 5G connectivity support.
Apple started offering OLED screens for the entire iPhone 12 lineup but the upcoming iPhone SE model will have an LCD display of 4.7-inch, claims the report citing four people aware of the development. It is expected to carry the same pricing as the current-generation model — $399.
It makes sense for Apple to go all-in when it comes to offering 5G connectivity on its smartphones given that the company was a later come to this new technology as most of its rivals, including Samsung, Huawei, Xiaomi, OPPO, etc. started offering 5G support on their devices, both premium and mid-range, since past couple of years.
