In less than one week we will know exactly whether Apple is planning the launch of a new iPhone model with a small display, successor of the iPhone 5 series. The iPhone SE model appears often in various discussions and in more and more rumors, the latest being related to the appearance of the phone. Although nothing can be officially confirmed, it is quite possible that this is the design of the next iPhone.
Apple has switched to a more rounded design with the iPhone 6 series, leaving sharp edges and glass on the back end, adopting the anodized aluminium construction for its phones. The new iPhone SE with a 4-inch display would follow the lines of the design of the new generations, but will also provide some differences, which could provide a look behind the gates for iPhone 7.
The latest details describe a small smartphone, which comes in different color options and which waives the horizontal lines for antennas. It is rumored that the Apple logo will be made of glass, a first for the series, while the iPhone camera will again be out in relief. The positioning of the buttons seem to be in the same as per iPhone 6 series.
However, the Chinese YouTube channel named Beep suggest that iPhone SE will just be a smaller iPhone 6 without differences in design. Their presentation clip presents a model that is now working, possibly stolen from the factory. Interesting is the fact that the Power button on this model is positioned at the same place as the iPhone 5 and 5S, on top and not on the right side, as on the iPhone 6.
