Leaked schematics show Apple iPhone 5se is an Apple iPhone 6 doppleganger
A pair of schematic diagrams showing older and newer prototypes of the 4-inch Apple iPhone 5se, reveal that the device resembles the Apple iPhone 6. The diagrams were received by Steve Hemmerstoffer (better known as @OnLeaks), who was sent them by an anonymous source who claims to be involved in the iPhone's supply chain.

The Apple iPhone 5se is expected to be unveiled March 15th at an event that will supposedly include the Apple iPad Air 3, and a refresh version of the Apple Watch. The former seems to be designed for those who love the specs of the Apple iPad Pro, but don't need the large 12.9-inch screen, and the huge price. The iPad Air 3 is expected to be powered by the Apple A9X chipset, contain 4GB of RAM, carry quad-speakers, and work with the Apple Pencil and the Smart Keyboard. The Refresh version of Apple's smartwatch is rumored to include FaceTime capabilities.

Three days after being unveiled, the iPhone 5se will launch, according to speculation, thus forgoing a pre-order period. The sketch of the newer version of the phone shows that Apple is using a pill shaped TrueTone flash instead of the round module seen on the earlier version of the phone. The handset is expected to be powered by the same A9 SoC found inside the Apple iPhone 6s and Apple iPhone 6s Plus. In addition, the phone is said to support NFC so that it can contain Apple Pay. While the device will not offer 3D Touch, it is believed to include Live Photos. According to the diagrams, the Apple iPhone 5se will come with Touch ID.

Check out both older and newer iPhone 5se schematic diagrams by clicking on the slideshow below. Both prototypes have the same dimensions, measuring 123.9mm x 58.7mm x 7.6mm.  That compares to the dimensions of the Apple iPhone 6s, which are 138.3mm x 67.1mm x 7.1mm.
