iPhone SE to Look 'Almost Exactly the Same' as the iPhone 5S?

Posted by · 18162 views · Translate

A last minute check with sources reveals that the iPhone SE will look 'almost exactly the same' as the iPhone 5S, reports 9to5Mac.

This means the phone will include a boxier, not curved, design complete with rounded volume buttons, a power button on the top, a headphone jack, speaker, and microphone on the bottom, and a back with a metal center and a glass bottom and top. We previously reported that the only easily apparent difference would be the product’s edges. There have been mixed reports regarding the look of the new edges, and sources say that while the front edges could be “very slightly” curved, the potential change is not noticeable. Regardless, the iPhone SE’s edges will be less shiny and likely lose the shiny mirror finish that helped make the iPhone 5s prone to scratches.

The new 4-inch iPhone is believed to feature a 12MP camera, an A9 chip, NFC, a similar form factor to the iPhone 5s, and slightly curved glass like the iPhone 6, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.2, Live Photos support, a slightly larger 1642 mAh battery, and storage capacities of 16GB and 64GB. The device is not expected to have support for 3D Touch.

Apple will likely unveil the device at its 'Let Us Loop You In' event on March 21st. Below you can see the three major rumored designs with the one predicted by 9to5Mac sources on the left. Which do you like best?

Haha from the 4 to the 6? Not been there long have you? I've been with Apple since the 2g phone and I have also tried out the Samshits! Oh yeah they are great when you buy them as is nearly every smartphone but wait until you have had it for 3 months or so and believe me the overall performance of the phone is terrible. The Android system is wide open to Viruses and Adaware/Malaware. If truth be told the security is very very poor. Now compare that to iOS which apparently even the FBI can't get into!! Haha. Your argument holds no water so do not criticise that which you know zero about.

5S and 5 was the best design ever but it won't be surprising if they used a design from 2 YEARS AGO screeeeewwww that Apple hello?! Time to start innovate!! Imo there has been zero innovation since the 5 and 5S and I've owned every iPhone since the 4 series, I'm bored of apple officially. Hopefully they do something cool with the iPhone 7 but then again no headphone jack? What kind of fuckery is this?? I use my headphone jack every damn day!! Until it's not an Inconvince for me I will never buy a phone without a headphone jack. Hello Galaxy S7 edge here I come.

You're acting like you lived under a rock for years! Hello! You in there? Smell the coffee! Apple continues to innovate since the 5(s) that competition CONTINUES to copy from Apple, hell the iPad Pro with Apple pencil even surpassed Wacom tablet by how much you can do with pencil, not to mention the quote used for the 6s was "the only thing that changed is EVERYTHING" as if Apple has worked their ass off more than ever if not went beyond introducing more than one feature in s models compared to past iPhones. Not that Jobs isn't didn't do much at the time, but after switching to Cook, there has been much of a change other than appearance and just introducing one feature. I can go on and on, but I hope you get my point!
