iPhone SE Plus launch soon, and it is expected to replace the all-new affordable iPhone 12 mini. While the rumours are still yet to be confirmed, but yes, Apple is working on a Plus variant of the current SE 2020 model, and it will launch next year. A new mid-range Apple phone at an affordable price will help the company solidify its position in the entry-premium flagship category.
Apple is slowly trying to get into the affordable premium category by not only focusing on the upper-end premium segments.
Apple is also expected to expand the supplier supplier base by further reducing the manufacturing costs. The cameras for iPhones are mainly supplied by Taiwanese Largan and Yujingguang. It may include Sunny Optical Technology as well next year.

The recent developments confirm that Apple will launch a new iPhone SE Plus next year. The Plus model will not be a 5G smartphone and will 4G network. The device will be powered by the current A14 Bionic processor. Apple already said to have postponed the launch of new iPhone SE 2021, which is said to happen in the second half of next year.
Apple will not stop selling iPhone 12 series phones, but the Plus model may replace the iPhone 12 Mini.
The name of the phone is not confirmed yet, but the codes hint at iPhone SE Plus / iPhone SE 2021 Plus. The Plus model will probably have an iPhone 8 Plus screen with a Touch ID.
iPhone SE Plus will come with a 6.1-inch screen. The company will continue to use an LCD Display and not an OLED panel obviously. It will use the same case as the iPhone XR or iPhone 8 Plus. iPhone SE Plus will run on the A14 Bionic chip with dual cameras at the back.
iPhone SE 2021 Leaked: To Be Priced Cheaper?
The upcoming 2021 iPhone SE model will see a few improvements in terms of specifications. Finally, we may see a full-screen display on the new SE phone as the iPhone 12 Mini. The iPhone SE 2021 may have a display notch on top with an edge-to-edge panel as the other latest iPhones.
Coming to availability and launch, the new iPhone SE 2021 will not come in the first half of 2021 as the 2020 predecessor.
As the current iPhone 12 production and launch was delayed, the company will primarily focus on the iPhone 13 series next year. So the production of a new iPhone SE will be a second priority. So, Apple iPhone SE 2021 launch is expected in Q3 2021.
iPhone SE 2020 came out in April this year. The device had an iPhone 8 body with an internal hardware of the iPhone 11 with some minor differences at a very strategic pricing. The affordable price tag soon became the major USP, and iPhone SE 2020 sold like hot cakes.
