Does this video show off the 4-inch Apple iPhone SE?
On March 21st, a mere week from today, Apple will hold a press event during which it is expected to roll out the 4-inch Apple iPhone SE. As usual, there have been a few pictures and video claiming to show the handset. But if you're looking for a clear look at the device, you need to check out the video at the bottom of this article.

Before you hit the play button, don your cynical glasses and grab some NACL from the shaker, as you should take this clip with the necessary grain of salt. Especially since the end of the video contains a vocal disclaimer about the phone that is allegedly the iPhone SE.

The video describes the iPhone SE as the "mixed blood of iPhone 5s and iPhone 6s." Certainly it resembles the iPhone 6s in looks with a screen size that harkens back to the 4-inch Apple iPhone 5s. It also appears to match the schematics of the phone that were leaked last month.

The Apple iPhone SE is expected to be powered by the same A9 chipset that is found under the hood of the Apple iPhone 6s and Apple iPhone 6s Plus. Despite the lack of 3D Touch, it will reportedly offer Live Photos. NFC and Apple Pay are both said to be supported, along with Touch ID. And a 12MP camera is rumored to be on the back of the unit.

We should know all in just one week. In the meantime, you can click on the video below to see what is supposedly the Apple iPhone SE.

Thanks for the tip!

If this is true, the iPhone 5S is a million time more beautiful.

Is this real? It could just be a well crafted iPhone clone. @ ChocolateSauceMaker was that necessary? Why start with an insult? Why not just comment on the story for what it is?

Because iFans are adolescent, spoil, non-confident bunch of basement living hippies. That's why! Their whole existence is built on egotistical stupidity.

But by responding to them, you're making them feel important or of your time's worth. Why not just ignore them and move on!

Because he is exactly what he called the iFans. An adolescent, spoil, non-confident basement living monkey who has nothing better to do than write paragraphs all the time on Phonearena when iPhone and Android gets mentioned in the same sentence.

I like to debate. I also liek to offer a voice of reason to people who are selfish and typically unreasonable. I'm not spoiled. I came from a very poor family. Which is why I busted my ass to make sure my personal life would be better for me and my family. I've never lived in a basement, I never lived off my parents. I left home when I was 16. I still finished school and I graduated in the top 5% of my class. College wasnt an option that was easy to obtain back in the late 80's as it is now. But I have more knowledge and understand things far better than many people who hold a fancier piece of paper. After all book knowledge will only get you so far. I don't consider myself to be an elitist over anyone just because of something I may own. No matter how good you have it, someone else has it way better than you do. Anyone who thinks or acts like they are better than someone for something as small as a phone is an idiot. I love tech. Tech is the most awesome form of science I know. It forever changes and it helps and hurts people at the same time. But we all should just enjoy it equally. TBH, it pisses me off when people say things that shows they are careless, stupid and moronic. people who come here simply to start stupid fights because they have a miserable life. VVVVVVVVV MISERABLE LIFE? See an example below VVVVVVVVVV

They had the phone right next to the 5S (slightly bigger than it) so how can you say that it is a 6S????

Seems some chinese knock off. If this was a real deal why it was there in that shop? Chinese have released it early in the market? Why that lady didn't turn it on and said she tried but it couldn't turn on? And Tim Cook seems to have lost control of his Company and chinese are incharge if this is true...... Lolllllssss

Rumor has it that the iPhone 7 will be identical to the 6S. The only difference will be the antenna line going across the back will be gone, leaving the curved and top/bottom lines intact. So instead of them being an enclosed oval, they'll be like an open container (if that made sense). Apple makes great products, but they're really starting to falter in design. When was the last time the Macbook Air got a redesign? Macbook Pro? The Apple Watch is over a year old and still won't get a redesign, just new bands... Even Samsung redesigned the Galaxy S7 (although they're similar, they're complete redesigns, unlike "S" models). It's a shame that this 4 inch model is identical to the 6. If they're going to build a new phone, they can at least design a new phone...

well first of all, if it isn't broke don't fix it (or don't redesign in this case). But I do agree with you that Apple's design is starting to fail and the Macbook Air hasn't been looking any newer. I don't really pay much attention to their laptops but I know I haven't seen anything "new". The iPhone 6/6s was ok to me but it was almost too slim and light. the bands were a thing to deal with or hate and the battery I love making fun of.

It looks like a GooPhone. That once Chinese knock-off company that makes their Android phone look just like an iPhone even down to the OS. But uses cheaper parts. Its for people who want an iPhone but can't afford one. No one will ever notice the difference either.

I am not a Apple fan and even if can tell it is a fake. How convenient it wouldn't turn on too.

It looks like the body of an IPhone 5 was inserted into the body of a smaller iPhone 6.

Well, I had a healthy laugh seeing those idiot fans in action. We all should do the same I think.
