Update from January 20, 2022: The release of the iPhone SE 3 is getting closer, yes we will probably have to be patient until April. If it was previously assumed to be March 2022, Apple insider and display expert Ross Young specifies the release period (source: Ross Young).

iPhone SE 3 is coming in spring
The new smartphone is again assigned to the middle class and should have a 5G modem. For Apple, it would then be the cheapest mobile phone with 5G in the portfolio. Furthermore, four new iPhones are predicted for the second half of the year. Literally:
“In terms of product development, Apple is sticking to its plan to launch the third generation iPhone SE in Q1 22 and four models of a new series in H2 22. The third-generation iPhone SE is expected to be a key tool that will help Apple establish itself in the mid-range 5G smartphone market segment. Production volume for 2022 is estimated at 25-30 million units.”
But: There is no new Apple design
Those who are already rejoicing should keep their anticipation in check. Because according to what is already known and has already been confirmed by insiders such as Ming-Chi Kuo, the changes to the current second generation are rather hidden. So it stays with the current design, based on the long-discontinued iPhone 8. Ergo: Fat display frame, home button and thus also Touch ID are retained.
We tested the current model of the iPhone SE:
What is new, however, is the already mentioned 5G modem and probably with it Apple A15 also Apple’s current chip. So the iPhone SE is by no means slow, but rather the fastest iPhone of the old design.
A really new housing and a larger display, on the other hand, will not be available until 2023 at the earliest, rather not until 2024. Those who speculated on this still have to be patient or reorient themselves. For example, buy an iPhone 11 or iPhone 12 as an alternative.
