Apple will be holding an event on Monday the 21st of March. It is suspected that a series of services and products will be unveiled. Notable among them is the rumoured iPhone SE which can be seen in the attached video taken in China. 9to5 Mac is already giving iPhone fans some possible descriptions of the iPhone SE. First of all, why the choice of SE instead of the regular numbers we are used to for iPhone editions. The site suggests that it could either stand for enhanced or special edition. According to the video, the new phone could easily be called a hybrid as it’s a blend between the iPhone 5s and the 6s only it’s a 4 inch screen device. At this time though, no one can confirm that the device in the video is genuine because according to 9to5 Mac, iPhone SE’s design will be nearly identical to the iPhone 5s, with slightly curved edges replacing the chamfered edges of the iPhone 5s.
Here are excerpts from the 9to5 Mac publication
Powered by the new internals are upgraded cameras and camera software. Like the iPhone 6s, the iPhone SE will be capable of taking and viewing Live Photos, pictures that embed a few seconds of video and audio before and after the time of the still photograph. On the iPhone 6s, these Live Photos are playable via a 3D Touch hard press, but the feature will work via a simple long press on the iPhone SE as the SE will not have 3D Touch.
Sources say that the iPhone SE will replace the iPhone 5s in the iPhone family, and will likely be released within a week of the announcement. Upon the release of the SE, the 5s will be discontinuedand the SE will take its price points. As of today, the iPhone 5s is available in 16GB and 32GB capacities for $450 and $500, respectively.
In any case, Monday isn’t far away.
