The iPhone SE (an acronym for Special Edition) was an odd-ball launch for Apple last year. An iPhone forged from of the same shell as the 2013 iPhone 5s, it had updated internals like the A9 chip and a 12 megapixel camera from the iPhone 6s that launched six months before. One could say that after the ill-fated $549 iPhone 5c from 2012, the $399 iPhone SE has probably been the company’s most earnest attempt at cracking the mid-range smartphone market. Apart from the pocket-friendly price tag, the company also suggested that there was still high demand for a compact smartphone with a 4-inch display.
It has been more than six months now since Apple released the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. Leaks and rumors regarding the iPhone 7 are already flowing in full force, but they are not expected to launch before September this year. Apple, however, seems all set to launch a new iPhone before that, dubbed the iPhone SE or the iPhone 5SE at a media event later this month.
It hasn’t been that long since Apple officially sent out invitations for its upcoming March 21 event, and now it’s confirmed people will be able to tune in from outside Cupertino.
As had been previously rumored quite a bit, Apple has just sent out invitations to its latest event, where it’s expected a new iPhone, a new iPad, and new Apple Watch bands will be unveiled.
Apple is widely expected to launch a new 4-inch iPhone dubbed iPhone SE at a media event on March 21st. This is great news as there seem to be quite a few people who have been eagerly waiting for Apple to launch an updated 4-inch iPhone model.
The “iPhone SE” is a hot topic of discussion, as iPhones typically are, and with the rumored launch date right around the corner, the renders of what the device might look like are coming out of the woodwork.
The first purported image of the allegedly 4-inch display that Apple will be using on the iPhone SE has been leaked by Nowhereelese. The leaked images show a barebones display assembly system for the 4-inch iPhone.
