IPHONE CHANGING NAME FOR NEW 4 INCH SMARTPHONE LIKELY TO BE "IPHONE SE"


Apple’s spring events don’t usually don’t see the launch of an iPhone handset, but this year, things will be done a bit differently by the Cupertino-based company. We have plenty of reasons to believe that it will be announcing a classic 4-inch offering which is now likely to be called the iPhone SE.


The iPhone SE will look just like the 5s, but with slightly more curved edges. A recent report said it would feature the powerful A9 processor and always-on Siri option. The report also hints at Rose gold colour option and, 16GB and 64GB storage variants.
Going by the previous reports, the Apple iPhone 5se or allegedly ‘SE’  is expected to pack in plenty of recently announced features, all except for a fingerprint reader and 3D Touch. What you can expect to get on this smaller iPhone 5s successor is a design similar to the iPhone 6 models, an 8MP camera on the back and 1.2MP front-facing camera.
Talking about the camera, the sensors and the hardware will be able to deliver larger panoramas and autofocus for video recording as well. Also included in the iPhone 5se will be a barometer that will help the Health app check for changes in elevation. Other upgrades also include an NFC chip for Apple Pay and other communication options that would include Bluetooth 4.2, VoLTE, and 802.11ac Wi-Fi. Powering it all will be an Apple A8 chipset with the M8 co-processor that will also come from the currently available iPhone 6 models.
Its 4-inch display is expected to have better resolution though, but there’s considerable evidence that the 3D Touch functionality will be absent on this screen. That said, the fingerprint scanner will maintain its place on the handset of course.
