  • iPhone SE 3 and iPhone 12S Pro is expected to arrive in Q2 2021.
  • Apple's A15 Bionic chipset will power these devices.
  • These two devices may also get an in-display fingerprint scanner.

Last week we had rounded up the leaks around the iPhone 13, mentioning no information confirming the iPhone SE 2020 upgrade. However, now we have some information confirming the existence of the iPhone SE upgrade and another device.

Some concept images have surfaced online revealing two devices dubbed as iPhone SE 3 and iPhone 12S Pro. The iPhone SE 3 is expected to see some major upgrades over its previous whereas the iPhone 12S Pro will follow the same design language as the iPhone 12 Pro, leaked renders suggest. Rumours also suggest that the iPhone 12S Pro could have been a possible iPhone 13 Pro.

The iPhone SE 2020 was hugely applauded in the tech community. It is an excellent value for money device with a beefy chipset, a decent camera system which falls a little short on battery life. Apple might want to fix battery life and the huge bezels on the upcoming iteration, i.e., iPhone SE 3.

As of now, we have gathered a decent chunk of information about the iPhone SE 3 and the iPhone 12S Pro. So sit back and read the complete article to find out everything we know about these two devices.

iPhone SE 3 specs and features

--The iPhone SE 3 will expectedly be an official product recent renders suggest. The render showcases an almost bezel-less display, unlike the previous iteration of the iPhone SE 2020. Also, the render reveals a punch-hole camera on the centre of the display, and we might see a punch-hole camera for the first time on the iPhone SE 3.

--The render shows a flatter design similar to the iPhone 12. The device is expected to see a single camera sensor with an LED flash on the rear. Also, on the upcoming iteration, the Touch ID might be swapped out to incorporate an in-display fingerprint scanner. If these design changes come out to be true, we might see a significant increase in this device's overall pricing.

-- As per the specifications, we expected the device to ship with a 5.4-inch high-resolution IPS LCD panel. Reports suggest that this device will be powered by Apple's A14 Bionic chipset coupled with 4GB of RAM. Further, the reports suggest three storage variants of the iPhone SE 3 - 64GB, 128GB and 256GB.

--In terms of optics, the device might see a 12-megapixel f/1.6 lens on the rear; however, the lens used on the front shooter is currently unknown.

iPhone 12S Pro specs and features

--As far as iPhone 12S Pro is concerned, we have a few renders from the likes of a Dutch tech blog LetsGoDigital and Concept Creator(Youtuber). The concept video reveals a device that looks almost identical to the iPhone 12 Pro. However, the notch has been replaced by a speaker grille and a selfie shooter. Also, the lightning port can be seen missing on the concept renders. So, it's easy to predict that the Cupertino might completely switch to wireless charging soon. The rear of the device also showcases a triple back set up much like the iPhone 12 Pro.

--The iPhone 12S Pro is expected to feature a 6.1-inch OLED panel with support for 120 Hz refresh rate. The device is also rumoured to get an in-display fingerprint scanner alongside Face-ID for authentication.

--Every year, Apple ships its devices with a new chipset and the same is expected for the iPhone 12S Pro. The device may be powered by the A15 Bionic chipset plus 5G and WiFi 6E.
