Pictures of the expected 4-inch iPhone
Apple may be looking to unveil its new lineup- the 4-inch iPhone in March. Instead of releasing a smaller version of the iPhone 6s, Apple is upgrading the existing iPhone 5s that was first released in fall 2013.
The 4-inch iPhone is called iPhone 5SE and will retain allegedly the iPhone 5S's design including a headphone jack. It is said to look similar to an iPhone 5s, but with curved cover glass similar to the iPhone 6/s design.

Recently, series of photos of the iPhone 5SE filled with eye-catching designs was created by the designer Tomas Moyano.
The 4-inch iPhone design has obvious benefits like one-hand use and being pocket-friendly
A special feature of this device is that the plastic antenna strip will be removed and replaced by two white plastic patches at the top and bottom of the back side. Besides, this concept is also designed with four basic colors: white, yellow, pink and gray.

Regarding the specifications, the new 4-inch iPhone will have other similar hardware specs as the iPhone 6s, including an A9 chip and NFC for Apple Pay. The device's form factor is expected to be similar to the iPhone 5s, although the display is said to have slightly curved 2.5D glass like the iPhone 6 and newer.
Apple's new 4-inch iPhone could also feature 16GB and 64GB storage capacities, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.2, Live Photos support, and a slightly larger 1,642 mAh battery compared to the iPhone 5s. 3D Touch will likely remain exclusive to the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus as a differentiating feature.

The well-informed analyst continues to believe the smartphone will cost between $400 and $500 in the United States. But what they say, this is just a design based on rumors about Apple's iPhone. Let's wait until the Apple event to be held on March 15.
