Apple has finally launched the new iPhone SE 3 (2022) at its "Peek Performance' event on Tuesday. It starts at Rs. 43,900 for the 64GB model in India. Pre-orders for the handset will begin at 6:30pm on March 11 and the sale starts on March 18. As for key highlights, it features an HD display, an A15 Bionic chipset, iOS 15.4, and 5G connectivity.
- The new iPhone SE 3 has debuted as the first 5G-supported handset in the iPhone SE line-up. However, design-wise, the phone looks exactly like its predecessor.
- The SE series is touted to be Apple's most affordable range of smartphones. The higher-than-expected starting price-tag of the device has, however, surprised many in India who expected the phone to cost between Rs. 30,000-40,000.
The iPhone SE 3 features a glass front and back, prominent top and bottom bezels, an IP67-rated build quality, and a Touch ID sensor on the front.

It is available in Midnight, Starlight, and (PRODUCT)RED color options.
On the rear, the iPhone SE 3 sports a 12MP (f/1.8) camera with 5x digital zoom, Smart HDR 4, Photographic Styles, and LED flash. Up front, it has a 7MP (f/2.2) selfie snapper.
The iPhone SE 3 is powered by an A15 Bionic chipset, paired with 3GB of RAM and up to 256GB of internal storage. Under the hood, it runs on iOS 15.4 and houses a battery with 20W fast-charging and Qi wireless charging support. For connectivity, the handset offers support for 5G, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, GPS, and a Lightning port for charging.
