I believe that fans who continue to pay attention to Mingmei Infinite to this day should understand that after the launch of the new iPhoneSE in the first half of the year, many consumers believe that Apple is cleaning up 4G inventory, reusing some materials of iPhone8, and finally launched the mediocre appearance of iPhoneSE2. It was equipped with the most advanced Apple A13 chip at the time. The price of 3,299 yuan can be said to be the rhythm of forced cost performance. In addition, some e-commerce platforms used iPhoneSE2 to make a fuss, and the price fell below 3,000 that month. It eventually became the top ten best-selling mobile phone in the world in the first half of the year.
However, it has become more and more difficult to find a very good small screen mobile phone in today’s mobile phone market. Although the strength of Apple 12 mini and Apple SE series is very good, it is still difficult to meet the needs of most users.
On the one hand, the battery life of the iPhone 12 mini is not strong enough, and the power consumption is very fast after turning on 5G; on the other hand, the iPhone SE2 does not support 5G networks, and it is difficult to follow the market trend for a long time.
Therefore, in this case, it is still very difficult for consumers to choose a small-screen mobile phone that suits them. Unless the small-screen market rises wildly, mobile phone manufacturers are unwilling to build small-screen mobile phones.
This is not well known, after Apple launches the new iPhone 12 series, it will invest in the next series of mobile phone research and development. According to recent news from many international analysis agencies, Apple is developing the next generation of iPhone SE phones, and the official naming of the next generation of iPhone SE phones may be iPhone SE 3 or iPhone SE Plus (hereinafter referred to as iPhone SE 3) .
Recently, according to foreign media reports, Apple is preparing a successor to the iPhone 8 Plus, which is the iPhone SE Plus, and its starting price is expected to be around 3,500 yuan.
Although it is still uncertain when Apple will launch this phone, the research and development work on this model of mobile phone has already begun, and related work is basically ready, similar to the previous iPhone SE2 positioning.
However, according to the previous industry chain, Apple has no plans to update the iPhone SE series in the foreseeable future, but the potentially larger screen new iPhone SE Plus is in preparation.
It is reported that iPhone SE Plus will support 5G network, the screen size will be upgraded to 6.06 inches, the image will be upgraded to dual camera, and Touch ID will be retained. The location of the fingerprint sensor is not yet known.
If Touch ID is still designed for the front, coupled with a 6.06-inch screen, one-handed operation may become a luxury, because the circular Home button greatly affects the screen-to-body ratio of the phone, which will result in a larger body measurement size.
In terms of hardware configuration, the iPhone SE3 mobile phone will be equipped with a new Apple A14 processor, an external Qualcomm Snapdragon X55 baseband chip, support for dual-mode 5G networks (SA/NSA), and a new three-camera configuration. The overall performance configuration is absolutely very It is worth looking forward to.
It can be said that the 3,500 yuan large-screen iPhone has lowered the threshold again, which is worth looking forward to.
Of course, in order to reduce costs, iPhoneSE3 certainly has many shortcomings, such as screen and fast charging.
The screen of the iPhone13 series is an OLED screen that supports a high refresh rate of 120Hz, while the material of the iPhoneSE3 is not only an LCD screen, but the refresh rate is still the regular 60Hz. In terms of fast charging, next year’s iPhone 13 series is also very likely to make a major improvement, and iPhone SE3 is still 18W or 20W “slow charging”.
In addition, it is worth mentioning today that Ming-Chi Kuo, an analyst under Tianfeng International, also said that iPhone SE3 will not be launched early next year, so everyone has to wait patiently.
In addition, this year Apple launched four iPhone 12 series phones, and the iPhone 12 mini is an iPhone with a small screen. Compared with the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max, the demand is much weaker. Therefore, Ming Mei Xun believes that the possibility of Apple launching a small-screen version of the iPhone SE3 next year is also very small. As for whether it will launch a large-screen iPhone SE Plus, it is still unclear.
However, since Apple released the iPhone 12 series, there have been frequent rollovers, first with signal doors and then with green screen doors, and now a new iPhone has been exposed online. At that time, will everyone consider the smaller and more refined iPhone 12 Mini, or the larger and cheaper iPhone SE 3?
In addition, at present, the Internet has high expectations for the iPhone SE3. After all, you can experience Apple’s top performance at a low price. This is still very tempting for many people, and this is also the iPhone SE. The main selling point of the series depends on whether the newly upgraded iPhone SE3 can continue this low price advantage.
Finally, what Mingmei Wuxian wants to say is: It seems that Apple has made a trade-off to a certain extent by increasing the screen of the mobile phone and reducing the price of the mobile phone. However, from the perspective of Apple’s layout, Apple is not capturing the small-screen mobile phone market, but more like capturing the market in the 3000-3500 price range. After all, due to the rise of domestic mobile phones, although Apple’s profits are rising, mobile phone sales have been declining. If corresponding measures are taken, the market share will continue to shrink, which will affect Apple’s software profits.
The release of iPhone SE2 and the preparation of iPhone SE3 indicate that Apple is ready to capture the 3000 price range. This is not good news for mobile phone brands such as Xiaomi and OPPO in the high-end market. This means that these major mobile phone brands will Will compete with Apple in the 3000 price range. I don’t know what you think of iPhone SE3 after seeing this? Welcome to leave a message in the comment area to Mingmei Unlimited to participate in the discussion!
