Ever since the launch of the larger iPhone 6 and 6 Plus last year, rumours about a smaller iPhone have been making the rounds online. However, the company is yet to launch such a device. The latest of these rumours has suggested that the smartphone will allegedly be known as the iPhone SE and will launch at an event next month.
Earlier reports had suggested that the smaller iPhone would be known as the iPhone 5se as it would be replacing the iPhone 5s. But the device's likeness to the newer generation iPhones has probably urged Apple to drop the 5 from its name.
According to 9to5mac, the iPhone SE will be sold in 16GB and 64GB versions at the same price as the current price of the iPhone 5s. It is possible that the 5s would get a massive price cut since it is still officially available, and selling it for a marginally lower price than the SE would not make sense.
Newly leaked images of the iPhone SE's display panel have once again reiterated that the device will not feature 3D Touch, a much touted feature present in the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus. As opposed to last year, this time around there is enough evidence about the smaller iPhone, but we will only know for sure once Apple announces the smartphone at the rumoured March 15th event.
