Trusted Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo is now an active Twitter user. The analyst took to Twitter on Friday morning to share new, last-minute details about what to expect from the third-generation iPhone SE ahead of its official announcement during Apple’s March 8 special event.
iPhone SE 3 colors, storage and more
While it wasn’t initially clear if this Twitter account was actually Ming-Chi Kuo, 9to5Mac has independently verified that it is indeed the official account operated by TF International Securities analyst.
Kuo makes a few “expectations” for the iPhone SE 3, including that mass production will begin this month and that Apple will ship between 25 million and 30 million units through the whole of 2022. He also wrote that the iPhone SE 3 will be available in three storage configurations: 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB. This is an upgrade over the second generation iPhone SE, which is only available in 64GB and 128GB options.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like Apple has any exciting new colors in store for the iPhone SE 3. Kuo reported that the new device will be available in the same white, black, and red designs. It also reiterates that the device will have a “similar form factor design” to the current iPhone SE.
Finally, Kuo once again explains that the iPhone SE 3 will have an A15 chip inside as well as 5G connectivity, with support for both mmWave and Sub-6GHz connections.
mmWave is the 5G version with more impressive speeds, but on the other hand, its range is limited. This means that carriers have to build more cell towers to make them available to all users. Sub-6GHz in the US typically achieves speeds of 100-150Mbps, so it’s easier to deploy but much less powerful than mmWave 5G.
Perhaps the most interesting of the iPhone SE rumors is that Ming-Chi Kuo, one of the trusted sources for Apple rumors, is now on Twitter. Only time will tell what other tidbits of information you end up sharing.
