The iPhone SE is a 4-inch smartphone from Apple, the existence of which has supposedly been speculated about since the launch of the iPhone 6. The device, earlier rumoured to bear the name iPhone 5SE or iPhone 6C, is an upgraded version of the iPhone 5s offering specifications and features that are more in tune with the time. Apple’s 10ther anniversary iPhone is the iPhone X.
Where to Buy iPhone SE
Design and Display
This phone will sport similar appearance as the Apple iPhone 5S. It will feature solid aluminium casing like the other device. However, the iPhone SE will have slightly curved edges around the display.
Talking about the display, the iPhone SE is expected to measure 4 inches diagonally. Essentially, there is not much, aside the display, to separate this smartphone from the iPhone 5S by way of design. But it will possibly offer a rose gold variant like the iPhone 6S.
Camera and Storage
On the camera front, it is not clear what to expect yet at this time. Some sources say the iPhone SE will feature an improved 8-megapixel rear camera as seen on the iPhone 6, but others claim it will instead pack the more powerful 12-megapixel snapper provided on the iPhone 6S.
It will be amazing if the latter shooter is included given the awesome features and capabilities it offers, including 4K video capturing and Live Photos support. There is no talk about the selfie snapper. The iPhone SE is expected to be available only in 16GB and 64GB storage versions.

Power and Performance
Rumours have it that the phone will be powered by a more powerful A9 processor, which will deliver much more improved performance over the A7 unit found on the iPhone 5S. The CPU is rated as being 70 percent faster than the A8 chip used on the iPhone 6.
It features integrated M9 motion co-processor to keep ‘Hey, Siri’ feature always on and for keeping tab on motion for fitness tracking. The iPhone SE will have either 1 GB or 2 GB of RAM.
It will be equipped with a battery having a capacity in the range 1,624-1,642 mAh. The juicer should still offer talk time of at least about 10 hours.
The iPhone SE will feature a fingerprint sensor for Touch ID and NFC for Apple Pay. It will offer Bluetooth 4.2, faster Wi-Fi 802.11ac, and VoLTE support for connectivity.
