Apple 4-inch Smartphone Not Exactly the ‘C-Version’ We Expect

January 27, 2016, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Apple will indeed have a 4-inch variant of its iPhone launched in a couple of months. But it’s not the iPhone 6C which we all expect. The device has now transformed into an enhanced edition all the way from being a mere cheap edition.

Rumor says that the upcoming compact device from Apple won’t be stacked into its ‘C’ range of iPhone devices. Instead, the new variant is being called iPhone 5SE, where the SE can stand for either a special edition, or an enhanced version of the iPhone 5S device.

Either way, Apple is having some core features and spec array introduced into their next iPhone outing.


The compact device will feature a 4-inch screen, which will reportedly have a resolution of 1136×640 pixels (326 ppi). It’s same as that of the non-enhanced version, but there are several other beefy features incorporated in the device. One among them is the upgrade to the faster A8 processor from the previous A7 used in iPhone 5S.

The camera specs remain the same, with the device housing an 8MP sensor in the rear and a 1.2 sensor in the front. We are not sure if that will arrive with its inner numbers tweaked.

The Apple Pay feature and NFC technology will be introduced, and there will also be space for new sensors including a motion coprocessor and a barometer sensor.

There will also be inclusion of Live Photos feature and a 3.5mm jack; the one that’s to get shunned in its bigger cousin. The only absent feature, as it seems, is the 3D Touch feature.

Apple will be launching iPhone 5SE during March, and will be made available in the markets in the following month. The price tag is said to be around $450, which is the same as that of iPhone 5S.
