New 4-inch handset from Apple to be called the iPhone SE?
posted by Alan F. / Feb 26, 2016, 9:18 PM
The next rumored name for the model was the Apple iPhone 5se. That moniker appeared to be the final rumored title for the new 4-inch iPhone. Talk of a media event to be held on March 15th started to pick up steam. Expected to be unveiled on that date besides the 4-inch iPhone, is a 9.7-inch variant of the Apple iPad Pro and a refresh version of the Apple Watch.
iPhone SE. If true, this will be the first time that Apple's smartphone won't contain a number in its name since the OG Apple iPhone from back in 2007. While the specs of the device are said to be very much similar to the specs on the Apple iPhone 6s (A9 SoC with the M9 co-processor, Touch ID, NFC, Apple Pay, Live Photos, 16GB/64GB variants, and more), the design of the phone is said to resemble the iPhone 5s. But even that is far from being a slam dunk. A leaked sketch allegedly showing the 4-inch iPhone reveals that it is closer to the Apple iPhone 6 in looks than the iPhone 5s.
While we should learn a lot about the Apple iPhone SE in the weeks ahead, as we get closer to the 15th of March we expect to see a exponential rise in rumors and leaks related to this phone. Apple has a large number of potential buyers on the sidelines. These consumers do not feel comfortable with a 4.7-inch screen in their hands, but they also want to have an iPhone as powerful and full of features as the iPhone 6s. These are the people that the iPhone SE will be marketed to.

Am I the only one that noticed PA used a photo of the iPhone 5 and said it was a 5S in the article?

Since they do not have the actual images. Then they are using the iPhone 5s. However everyone who has seen it, said that it looks very close to the iPhone 5s. In any case fyah_king has a good point. Also if Apple prices it roughly the same, then it will be the (S)ame (E)xtortions when it comes to pricing.

I love the fact that they're going back to the 5s design. Which is the best designed iPhone IMO

Arguable. Visually maybe but not down to the same thickness and the same batt capacity. Hell at this point in time I'm willing to bet someone else' farm that there's a ready 6S percentile wanting to drop theirs for something TWICE the 5S thickness no problem so long as it comes also with 2GB RAM.
