‘iPhone 5se’ drawings show design similar to iPhone 5s, curved edges, and relocated Power key

The “iPhone 5se” is said to be unveiled sometime in March, at an event that will also host the arrival of the iPad Air 3.

Leading up to that, the unannounced device is starting to make the rounds, at least in design drawings. The images were first published by 9to5Mac, and show a device that looks practically identical to the iPhone 5s. The drawings come from sourced information from a case manufacturer, and say that the device’s dimensions are identical to the device launched in 2013.

One major change is the Power button has been shifted from the top, where it was positioned with the iPhone 5s, and moved to the side, where it shares a similar design decision to the iPhone 6/6s. On top of that, the front glass panel appears to feature a slight curve, but not as curved as they are with the iPhone 6’s design.

It’s noted in the report that the iPhone 5se will have Touch ID, but that the drawings do not reflect that. The reason for this is the rendering software simply just don’t show it.

The drawings do not show us any other details of the device, including what it will be running under the hood. Rumor has it that the iPhone 5se will boast an A9 processor, as well as the M9 co-processor. It is said to also include an NFC chip for Apple Pay support. Color options are said to be the same we’ve seen in the past, including a Space Gray option, Gold, and Silver. It will be sold for the same price as the iPhone 5s, and come in either a 16GB or 64GB option.

What do you think of the design?
