Rumors of a new 4" iPhone have stretched back for a full year, originally stating that the device would launch alongside the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus. Today, that rumor becomes a reality.
The rumored 4" device was originally known as the iPhone 6C, then the iPhone 5SE, and finally, the iPhone SE, standing for Special Edition. As with the iPhone 5C, the rumors were that this was finally Apple's entry into the low end market. Also similar to the iPhone 5C rumors is that this theory was entirely incorrect.
iPhone SE will use an A9 chipset, which is the same as the iPhone 6S, promising twice the performance as the iPhone 5S and three times the GPU performance.
The camera is also delivering the same 12 MP rear camera as the iPhone 6S. Since it's paired with an A9, it contains the same features, including Live Photos and 4K video.
It also contains the same front camera, which allows for the screen to be lit up with a flash. The device will start at $399 for the 16 GB model and $499 for the 64 GB model, making it cheaper than the iPhone 5S. It will be available March 31.
