2022 iPhone SE could resemble the iPhone XR but with a side-mounted f/s, 5G support, and more

Reusing older iPhone designs and branding them as newer models with updated hardware appears to be a resounding success for Apple as it incurs reduced protection costs for the company.

With the 2022 iPhone SE, the company is not expected to change that practice, and according to the latest rumor, the upcoming handset may bear a new look; resembling the iPhone XR, with a few changes.

A sketchy rumor from MyDrivers talks about the 2022 iPhone SE adopting the iPhone XR design, which would be a great step if it actually does happen.

For now thing, Apple has officially discontinued the iPhone XR, which launched back in 2018, so reusing its chassis while changing the internal specifications and adding upgrades will attract a boatload of customers.

Using the iPhone XR was also advantageous in other areas, such as giving users an increased screen size with its 6.1″ LCD screen, and that larger footprint led to a bigger battery.

The 2020 iPhone SE was just another rebranded iPhone 8 with updated specs, but due to its smaller size, the battery life was sacrificed, and it touted an older design that had chunky top and bottom bezels, which may have put off customers.

In short, the iPhone XR design for the new low-cost iPhone could possibly attract more customers as it resembles the aesthetics of a modern-day iPhone in almost every way.

The rumor also claims that the 2022 iPhone SE could include a side-mounted fingerprint reader but does not rule out the possibility of Face ID. It would be safe to assume that Apple would not include facial authentication hardware to reduce costs and price the upcoming iPhone SE competitively.

If that disappoints you, you may want to stay around and read on a bit more as there are other aspects that are likely to lift you up.

The 2022 iPhone SE could have 5G support, along with the A15 Bionic chipset, the same silicon present in the iPhone 13 Series.

The rumor does not state when we should expect Apple to launch the affordable iPhone, but it is possible that we get in H1 of 2022, considering Apple has already partnered with TSMC for mass-producing the A15 Bionic, it already has the necessary parts to ask its partners to begin assembling the device, so an immediate launch is not expected to be a problem.
