Apple iPhone 6 SE packaging leaked, but here's why it makes no sense

With less than 20 days to go for the Apple iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus launch, leaked photos of an iPhone 6 SE retail box and pamphlets have surface. But here’s why it makes no sense for Apple to launch the iPhone 6 SE.

By now, most of us are already aware that Apple will be unveiling its 2016 flagship smartphones the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, sometime next month. Over the past few months, we have come across a lot of leaks hinting at the design, features and specifications of the new iPhones. But today s leak raises more questions than clearing existing one. A handful of sketchy photos have surfaced online showing off the product packing and pamphlets of an alleged iPhone 6 SE. Yes, you read it right, and if you re confused too, here s why the latest leak does not make any sense. Also Read - iPad Mini for 2021 to ditch fat bezels, could bring along new Apple Pencil Mini

Apple launched the iPhone SE, which was the upgraded version of the iPhone 5s featuring a familiar compact design with 4-inch display, and the latest hardware from iPhone 6s. As the iPhone SE was launched just few months ago, we re not expecting an upgrade soon. Also, the iPhone 6 already has its successor the iPhone 6s.

In all probability, Apple would discontinue the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. The lineup is likely to begin with the iPhone SE, followed by the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus and of course, the new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. The iPhone SE already shares most of the hardware from the iPhone 6s, in a smaller form factor. The iPhone SE was launched because Apple believed there was still an audience that preferred a smaller footprint, which was lost when Apple decided to increase the display size with the iPhone 6. Finally, what will the iPhone 6 SE offer that the iPhone 6s and by extension the iPhone SE doesn’t?

Even if we were to consider earlier rumors that Apple won’t launch the iPhone 7 this year and instead call it the iPhone 6 SE, the packaging looks fake. First off, the lighting condition is pretty dull, which we can t usually complaint about the leaks, but still it looks like, someone with good Photoshop skills has used the iPhone SE and iPhone 6 packaging to blend it together and make it look authentic. The SE label extends higher than on the one seen on the iPhone SE box.

If we ignore the branding on the packaging and pamphlet, the box surface with Apple logo screams fake all the way. Why? The Apple logo on the box, which is usually vertical, it is placed horizontally. And if that s not enough, look at the typography on the back side of the box the spacing in the text isn t justified properly. Anyway, with Apple rumored to launch the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus onSeptember 7, everything would be clarified.

From what we have already come across, even though the new iPhones won t come with radical design changes, there s still a lot to look forward to. The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus could feature a full HD and QHD display, respectively, compared to the existing HD and full HD displays. The Plus variant being a premium smartphone, is likely to feature 3GB of RAM and dual camera setup at the back. The iPhone 7 camera could come with optical image stabilization, which was previously exclusive to the larger iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone 6s Plus.

Both smartphones are also expected to drop support for 3.5mm audio port, and come with improved water and dust resistance capabilities. The ugly antenna bands on the back are also expected to be moved along the top and bottom edges. Lastly, the home button on the front is expected to be capacitive touch one, with Force Touch feature. If all these changes are taken into account, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will still bring massive upgrades over the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus.
