March is promised to be very hot in terms of new smartphones. Though in the last two months, we have managed to see a number of amazing products, in March, we will see even more models. Interestingly, this month, the upcoming smartphones will come from various manufacturers, including Apple. Yesterday, we were talking about the first smartphone of Nothing. As you understand, for users, it becomes more complicated to choose a new smartphone for them.
Apple iPhone SE 3 5G
The small-size iPhone SE series has never been the talk of the town. We mean it’s not as popular as the iPhone Pro line models. This is because Apple users want to own a premium smartphone and not a cheap model. But there are millions of buyers who can’t afford to pay $1000 for a smartphone and they want Apple as well. For all those users, the Cupertino-based company has designed a new handset, namely the iPhone SE. This month, the latter will usher to its third generation.
On March 9, Apple will hold a new product launch conference and unleash not only the iPhone SE3 but also the iPad Air 5 and the new MacBook Pro.

The iPhone SE3 5G went on mass production in January. So everything goes according to the plan. This also means we know much about the upcoming device. For instance, the new iPhone SE will come with a design identical to that of the iPhone SE 2020.
It will sport the Apple A15 Bionic processor. The latter uses up to 15 billion transistors. This is a serious improvement in comparison to the previous generation of chips that used 11.5 billion transistors. Well, as for the numbers, this simply means it is 30% faster. But the manufacturing process remains TSMC’s 5nm process.
Also, our protagonist will come with a 4.7-inch small screen. It is almost identical to the iPhone 8. Interestingly, there is still a round Home button below the screen. The rest of the noteworthy features of the iPhone SE 5G include a better 12MP rear lens, which can improve the imaging effect.
Redmi Note 11 Pro Series
On the same day mentioned above, Redmi will hold a separate launch event in India to release the Redmi Note 11 Pro line models.
There will be at least two models. The higher variant known as the Redmi Note Pro+ 5G will feature a Snapdragon 695 SoC. At the same time, its sibling the Note 11 Pro will sport a MediaTek Helio G96 chipset. The latter is going to be a 4G smartphone. The rest of its features include support for 67W fast charging, a 108MP main sensor, and a 6.67-inch Full HD+ 120Hz refresh rate AMOLED screen.

As for the Redmi Note 11 Pro Plus 5G, it will carry a triple-camera setup. The 108MP sensor will also be accompanied by an 8MP ultra-wide camera and a 2MP macro lens. Unlike the Pro Plus model, the ordinary version will get an additional 2MP depth sensor. On the opposite side, we will find a 16MP selfie shooter.
Under the hood, it will feature a 5000mAh capacity battery supporting 67W fast charging.
In terms of other aspects, the Note 11 Pro smartphones come with dual speakers and a side-mounted fingerprint scanner. They run MIUI 13 on top of Android 11.
Xiaomi Mi 12 Series
Though a few models from this series have already managed to be uncovered in homeland China, they are not available for purchase globally. This will happen on March 15. According to the latest leaks, all three models of Xiaomi Mi 12, Mi 12X, and Mi 12 Pro will be launched at this event.
We guess the international versions of these phones won’t differ from the Chinese variants. Thus, the vanilla version will have a 6.28-inch AMOLED curved screen with a resolution of 2400*1080. Generally, the screen is one of the selling points of this device. So it’s logical to see various outstanding parameters such as a 120Hz refresh rate, 12bit color depth, 16000 automatic brightness, 419 PPI pixel density, and Corning Victus protective glass.
Under the hood, there is a Snapdragon 8 Gen1 flagship chip, which is coupled with an LPDDR 5 RAM and UFS 3.1 native storage. The 4500mAh large battery supports 67W wired fast charging, 50W wireless fast charging, and 10W wireless reverse charging. The Mi 12 has built-in Harman Kardon symmetrical dual speakers, and the MIUI 13 operating system out of the box.
As for the camera, it comes with a 50-megapixel main camera, a 13-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens as well as a telephoto/macro lens. The selfie shooter has a 32- megapixel resolution.
There are some differences between these three phones. So it’s better to take a look at the comparison table below:
