As we are getting closer to the scheduled release date of March 21 for the heavily-rumored Apple iPhone 5se, here is a summary of what we know so far about the upcoming handset. Rumors also suggest that the tech giant will launch the 9.7-inch iPad Pro and several Apple Watch-related enhancements, alongside the compact iPhone.
Apple is apparently gearing up to release a promo video showing the camera capabilities of the upcoming 4-inch iPhone 5se, also referred as iPhone SE and iPhone 6c.
Apple Insider, citing a tipster, said the iPhone 5se promo video will showcase 4K videos captured by the handset itself. Apple employees were reportedly spotted filming the promo in New York, last week.
Rumored Features, Specs
Past rumors suggested that the iPhone 5se will come packed with modest upgrades over the predecessor iPhone 5s. If the 4K video recording capability comes true, this handset will have lots in common with the current-generation iPhone 6s.
In any case, the 4-incher will not come with the much-appreciated 3D Touch / Force Touch pressure sensing technology, made famous by the iPhone 6s. Nevertheless, this device will apparently support Apple Pay with the help of NFC module.
Camera-wise, a 12-megapixel iSight shooter with support for Live Photos has been tipped. A FaceTime camera is believed to be mounted at the front. Under the hood, the iPhone 5se will come powered by Apple A9 processor, which is again similar to the iPhone 6s.
According to past rumors, this handset will reportedly come equipped with 16 GB and 64 GB of built-in storage space. A new Rose Gold variant can also be expected. Other speculated iPhone 5se features include support for Touch ID finger print sensor and VoLTE.
Possible Price Ambit
Speaking of price, ZDNet, citing industry analysts, said the 4-inch iPhone 5se will set the buyers back in the ambit of $350 and $450. It is worth noting that, the iPhone 5s retails at $450.
As always, readers are advised to take the reported iPhone 5se specifications and price with the proverbial pinch of salt as the tech giant has not confirmed any information thus far.
