Apple's affordable offering iPhone SE is expected to get an upgrade in 2022. The upcoming iPhone SE+ 5G will take over the iPhone SE 2020. There were rumours that the device would launch in 2021, but that didn't come to fruition. Although we do not have a specific launch date yet, a new report suggests that the launch may take place in April or early in May. The shipments are also expected to begin during the same time.

3D printed dummies of the iPhone SE+ have now appeared, hinting towards a similar form and overall design to the iPhone SE 2020. There's no home button on the unit. So it's possible that Apple may switch to a notched display on the upcoming model. On the rear, iPhone SE+ 5G appears with a single, which may get an upgrade.

The iPhone SE+ 5G is likely to be powered by the A15 Bionic chipset. This is the same processor which powers the current-gen iPhone 13 series. The device will also be 5G compatible. We know more about the iPhone SE+ 5G, so keep reading to find all the details.

iPhone SE+ 5G: Specs and features

-- The iPhone SE+ 5G has been appearing in the leaks frequently, thus hinting towards an imminent launch. Display analyst Ross Young has reported that the production of displays for iPhone SE+ 5G will begin this month. So Apple may be ready with units around April or early May, Ross believes. He adds that the company will start shipping orders at the same time.

-- CoverPigtou has created 3D dummies of the iPhone SE+ 5G in collaboration with xleaks 7. The dummy unit shows the new model in a similar overall design to the current-gen iPhone SE 2020. The dimensions are also identical at 138.4 x 67.3 x 7.3 mm. The rear panel of the unit appears with a single camera with an LED flash and the Apple logo. Surprisingly the logo has been moved upwards (general placement is centred).

-- The front panel of the dummy unit does not reveal any details. So it cannot be said if the smartphone will carry the older chin design or move to the notch design. The display size will significantly increase if Apple chooses the notch design. That said, leaks suggest that the screen size on iPhone SE will not increase until 2023/2024.

-- As far as the hardware is concerned, iPhone SE+ 5G may be equipped with an A15 Bionic chipset. Along with that, it will feature the X60 modem. The upcoming iPhone SE is likely to bring 5G support with the addition of the X60 modem.

-- The iPhone SE 2020 has a single rear camera. While it would have been nice to see dual rear cameras on the upcoming, the leaks deny the possibility of the same. The current model also has average battery life. So it will be nice to see a bigger battery on the iPhone SE+ 5G.

iPhone SE+ 5G launch and India price (expected)

The iPhone SE+ 5G is tipped to arrive in the first half of 2022, possibly in April or early May. At the moment, there's no information about the price of the iPhone SE+ 5G. But we are aware that the phone will be a mid-range offering that will compete with the Pixel 5a/Pixel 6a, OnePlus 9RT and Samsung S21 FE 5G. Keeping that in mind, we can expect the iPhone SE+ 5G under Rs 45,000 in India. To recall, iPhone SE 2020 was launched at Rs 39,900 in the country.
