It’s a well-known fact that the pocket-friendly 4-inch Apple iPhone 5se, also referred to as iPhone 6c, will be announced on March 22 at a special event. In the meantime, a new report from China says the upcoming mini device was spotted at the "Silicon Valley of the East" called Huaqiangbei.
Sourcing from the Silicon Valley, China’s Beeep has sent a video and photos of the iPhone 5se to ZDNet. In the video, the demonstrator compares the upcoming handset with iPhone 5s and iPhone 6s to give an idea of what to expect from the new iPhone. The device in focus has a beautiful Rose Gold exterior with the Apple logo shimmering in Golden hue.
Going by the video, the iPhone 5se looks thinner than the rest and the exterior color is relatively brighter. The phone has well-rounded corners making it easy and comfortable to hold. The camera unit juts out marginally similar to other iPhones. Apparently, the weight of the device is almost same as the iPhone 5s.
The video doesn’t look like a photoshopped work. But then, there is no way to verify the authenticity of the video. However, the device shown in the video almost confirms the umpteen rumors and leaks we have seen so far.
ZDNet, on the other hand, says this iPhone 5se model could also be Apple’s “Slugs,” which are apparently “full-sized mock ups of the real handset.” As a mock-up, it goes without saying that, the hardware and software configurations will not be part of the device. Such mock ups will be used by accessory makers in creating products like cases and covers. Hence, there is a good chance that we are looking at an Apple Slug of the real iPhone 5se.
