From specifications to design, a lot of details about Apple s upcoming 4-inch smartphone, the iPhone 5se, have emerged ahead of the official launch, expected to happen next month. According to new rumors, Apple will launch the smartphone on March 22, not on March 15 as rumored earlier. Rumors suggest Apple has shifted the entire launch event to March 22, and is likely to make other announcements such as a 9.7-inch iPad Pro, and new Apple Watch bands on the same day.

So far Apple hasn t sent out official invites for the event, and this information can be mere speculation. There s no word on why the event has been pushed to a later day. It may be recalled that Apple is rumored to put its new devices on sale immediately after the announcement, a different strategy from the previous years where it usually takes a few weeks for the same. One wild guess is that Apple may announce the devices on March 15, and put on sale on March 22. Also Read - Apple CEO Tim Cook claims iOS is more secure than Android
As far as the iPhone 5se goes, it is a revamped version of the iPhone 5s but with design and features similar to the new iPhone 6 series. There may be a few subtle changes such as power button may be relocated to the right edge. The se stands for the special edition, and is said to be targeted at customers who preferred the smaller iPhones, and didn t upgrade to new versions for this reason.
The Apple iPhone 5se is expected to have a 4-inch display. It is expected to be powered by Apple s A9 chip with M9 motion coprocessor, NFC support for Apple Pay and always-on Siri activation. The smartphone is likely to be priced at $450, approximately Rs 30,000, for the 16GB model. Apple may also introduce a 64GB variant.
