Apple SE might soon get the perfect partner, one that could surprise some.
The tech giant based in Cupertino is known for manufacturing premium gadgets, but it occasionally makes more affordable devices (a huge surprise sometimes), as a gateway into its ecosystem. We’ve witnessed the launch of the iPhone SE 2020, and now the same could be happening, but for the Apple Watch.
From the speculations so far, we find that Apple is working on the much-awaited Apple Watch 6. But other sources claim an Apple Watch SE might be released in early 2021. Here is what you need to know.
Apple Watch SE: a Much-needed Budget-friendly Apple Watch
According to a reliable tech tipster, Komiya, we should expect a new Apple Watch, a more affordable one, next year. The tipster claimed that the Apple Watch SE would replace the older, but cheaper Apple Watch 3.
Komiya noted that the Apple Watch SE would bring back the old design of the Apple Watch. So we should expect the Digital Crown to return. The smartwatch will likely come in an aluminum version.
However, what’s on the inside truly matters, and Apple Watch SE could impress with one of the sleekest features. The upcoming smartwatch is said to pack an S6 processor and W4 wireless chip. Those chipsets are set to be upgraded over the W3 and S5 chips found in the Apple Watch 3. The W4 and S6 are also expected to be featured in the Apple Watch 6.
All of this means that the Apple Watch SE won’t come with the recent smartwatch design from Apple’s engineers. It will have, however, one of the most impressive features for a wearable. And it shouldn’t be such a surprise, because this is how Apple did with the iPhone SE. The handset has an old design but comes with powerful specs.
The Apple Watch SE is said to come with a price tag that starts at $199. More details should be released in the coming months.
