Apple has finally revealed the official launch date for its long rumored event for March, where a number of new computing devices and updates are expected to be announced.
Among other updates and announcements, the March 21 launch date is expected to launch the long rumored 4-inch iPhone 5SE/SE. The iPhone SE will combine the iPhone 5S and iPhone 6S, which is pretty hard to picture. The iPhone SE will have a curved design just like current flagship iPhone smartphone, power- and home buttons, volume rocker and general design of the iPhone 6s, while retaining the smaller form factor of the iPhone 5, via MacRumors.
A number of mockup renders imagine what the iPhone SE may look like, but no images of the smartphone in a factory have leaked.
This cellular device will mark the return of the compact smartphone, a different take on the consistently expanding display size trends for a mobile device. The new 4-inch iPhone is assumed to be called the iPhone 5SE, or as recent rumors has been pointing out, simply as the iPhone SE, an acronym for “Special Edition.” The smartphone is expected to feature a look that is quite similar to the iPhone 5 and 5S, with a number of its hardware specifications are apparently similar to the iPhone 6S.
The most pivotal part of the iPhone SE isn’t the form factor design — it’s the internal hardware. The Cupertino-based tech giant’s iPhone SE will have an A9 processor, Touch ID, NFC and Apple Pay support, an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera sensors (some have argued for a 12-megapixel camera), and Live Photos support.
Moreover, it will also be backed with also get always on “Hey Siri” support, along with the M9 fitness tracker that was first introduced in the iPhone 6. As per on-board storage, the iPhone SE is believed to be shipped with either 16GB and 64GB storage capacities. iPhone SE will be available in space gray, silver, gold, and rose gold color variants.
Another devices expected to be unveiled during the March 21 launch event is the iPad Air 3, which the most recent reports have pointed out to be a 9.7-inch version of the iPad Pro, ditching out the “Air” nomenclature on it. The upcoming computing tablet is also expected to ship with a similar features as that of the large 12.9-inch Pro slate.
