Apple iPhone SE (2022) was released earlier this month on March 8. The third-generation iPhone SE smartphone is pretty much indistinguishable from the second-generation release. Now, a teardown video has surfaced on YouTube that showcases the differences between the two generations. The iPhone SE (2022) is said to house a larger 2,018mAh battery in comparison to the 1,821mAh battery of the iPhone SE (2020). In addition, the iPhone SE (2022) is said to be fitted with a custom-made Qualcomm Snapdragon X57 modem for 5G connectivity.
The teardown video was recently shared on YouTube by the PBKreviews channel. As previously mentioned, the iPhone SE (2022) packs a 2,018mAh battery which is claimed to provide up to two hours of additional playback and up to an extra 10 hours of audio playback in comparison to the second-generation handset. The two batteries are approximately the same size, but the teardown video suggests that Apple has slightly tweaked the connectors with the new release to prevent backwards compatibility.
As per another recent report by MacRumors, the iPhone SE (2022) features a Qualcomm Snapdragon X57 modem. This custom-made modem enables 5G connectivity of the smartphone. The modem is claimed to only support sub-6GHz bands.
