The Apple’s upcoming rumored 4-inch device called the iPhone 5SE is rumored to launch on the March 22nd event of the company but the company has not yet released any official event details to the public. The iPhone 5SE is also rumored to be launched as iPhone SE according to some rumors, but now the retail box of the device along with the device itself is leaked online. We can not confirm if this leaked image is genuine or not but we can expect this to be genuine as the box comes with iPhone 5SE written on its side.
The iPhone 5SE leaked retail box shows a grey color device with home button below display and ‘iPhone 5SE’ text written on its one side. The previous reports have claimed that the device will have A1622 and A1723 model numbers and will have a 4-inch display with 1 GB RAM. It will be powered by the Apple’s A9 chip with NFC support and will have 16GB/64GB of inbuilt storage capacity variants. It will feature a 12-megapixel rear camera and will have a 1,642 mAh battery.
The iPhone 5SE is rumored to launch with three color options and will be priced between $450-$500. The device will not feature the 3D Touch display that was available with the iPhone 6s series of Apple devices. It will have connectivity options like 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.2 as per the rumors. Macrumors has also said that the iPhone 5S will not disappear with the launch of the iPhone 5SE and may be available at more discounted price. The iPhone 5s is currently selling at $450 at full retail price so the smartphone may soon be discounted to $225 after the release of iPhone 5SE.
We have to wait now for Apple to officially announce its event details to have more details about this event in hand. The event will also confirmed the name of the device that is rumored with different names including iPhone 6c, iPhone 5e, iPhone 5SE and now with new name iPhone SE.
Stay tuned for more news and updates.
