I don’t know what makes Apple feel at home using the iPhone 8 design for their iPhone SE 2022. From 2020, Apple has not changed its design and is still faithful to the old-school design of the iPhone 8 which was launched in 2017.

You could say, the iPhone SE 2022 comes as an iPhone 8 that has bounced back with an updated name and chipset, which is certainly claimed to be better than 2017.

The iPhone SE 3 will be the first iPhone SE series to have a current 5G network. Previously, 5G networks in the iPhone lineup began to appear on the iPhone 12 Mini, but this time Apple is bringing the network to their affordable smartphones.

Unfortunately, the price set for the ‘iPhone 8 with the latest chipset’ is considered too expensive by some, considering the design displayed looks old and out of date.

Apple is selling the iPhone SE 3 (iPhone SE 2022) with prices starting at USD 429 or around Rp. 6.1 million.
