Apple will unveil its code-named N69 smartphone around the end of March 2016, which is likely to be called the iPhone 5se. This is according to a report by 9to5Mac.

The phone is based on an iPhone 5s and will mostly retain the design of the 2013 device.

It will feature a 4-inch screen – not sensitive to pressure touch – and “enhanced” hardware inside, with the following upgrades set to be implemented:

  • Curved glass edges like on the iPhone 6s
  • 8MP rear camera and 1.2MP front camera systems from the iPhone 6
  • Support for larger panoramas and autofocus for video recording
  • Barometer for tracking elevation in the Health app
  • An NFC chip for Apple Pay
  • The A8 and M8 chips from the iPhone 6
  • Bluetooth 4.2, VoLTE, and 802.11ac Wi-Fi chips from the iPhone 6s
  • Live Photos from the iPhone 6s
  • Silver, Space Gray, Gold, and Rose Gold colour options

“Apple hopes that this model could spur additional upgrades over time from those currently sticking to an iPhone 5 or earlier,” stated the report.
