Should went for mini style instead but hey it's Apple

Brace yourselves for iPhone users who'll try to convince you that this 720p display is better than the display on those android phones.

Previous rumors claimed that the iPhone SE 3 would be an iPhone SE 2 with A15 and 5G.
Judging from previous patterns, it would have to be an iPhone 11 with A15 (and 5G).
Now this throws in a side-mounted TouchID Sensor. Of course, that is possible, the iPad Air also used the iPad Pro shell but had a TouchID sensor instead of keeping the FaceID of the Pro.
The iPhone SE 2020 was 50$ cheaper compared to the iPhone 8 (449$).
Right now the iPhone 11 is selling for 499$. That could justify a cut in features like FaceID. But “based on the iPhone XR” would also mean it would lose the ultra wide camera. At that point, you’d really start to argue whether to buy the SE3 with the newer chip or a leftover stock 11 with the second camera and FaceID. I know there is some debate between FaceID vs TouchID. But that second camera missing would make it strange. The SE 2016 lost the shiny edges and the SE 2020 lost 3D Touch, all of those had at least somewhat controversial use (like FaceID vs TouchID). But the second camera missing would make it harder to justify.

That means it'll have:

6.1 inch 720p lcd display
Punch hole
Side mounted fingerprint reader

Quite different to a regular iPhone.

SE 4 should be based on the 13 mini.
