A well-known concept designer Martin Hajek has recently created several new renderings of what he believes is an iPhone SE. The renderings are based on recent leaks and rumors about the upcoming 4-inch handset and show us three different designs.
The first one is similar to the iPhone 5s and is based on facts collected by 9to5Mac reporters.
Something similar to the leaked iPhone SE display assembly has recently appeared on the Internet. The images showing the aforementioned part have been first spotted on a French website called Nowhereelse.fr, so we can be sure they are legitimate and trustworthy. Contrary to recent rumors, the new 4-inch iPhone appears not to support the 3D Touch technology.
According to the latest report from reliable sources, the smaller 4 inch iPhone will be called the iPhone SE, not the iPhone 5SE. If the rumors turn out to be legitimate, we may see the first iPhone without the number in its name.
Several new drawings showing the design of the long-awaited 4-inch iPhone 5se have been recently shared by a case manufacturer. The drawings prove that in terms of design the handset will be similar to the iPhone 5s. The only noticeable difference is the Sleep/Wake button that has been moved to the right side of the device. Sources claim that the edges of the iPhone 5se will be more similar to the edges of the iPhone 6, however, that’s not very conspicuous. The most important thing is that the iPhone 5s cases should fit the newer model, even though they will make it nearly impossible to use the side Sleep/Wake button.
