Report says Apple to launch a 4-inch iPhone in March

A report from 9to5Mac states that Apple is on its way to launching a new 4-inch iPhone that will be an update to its iPhone 5S that was released back in 2013.

Being a revamped 5S, the new 4-inch iPhone will have the same curved edge design but with improved internals. It’s also likely to be called the iPhone “5se”, with the se standing for Special Edition. Check out the provided list on some of the features of the 5se:


  • The chamfered, shiny edges have been replaced with curved glass like on the iPhone 6 and 6s lines
  • The same 8 megapixel rear camera and 1.2 megapixel 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 WiFi chips from the iPhone 6s
  • Live Photos from the iPhone 6s
  • Same Silver, Space Gray, Gold, & Rose Gold color options as the 6s line

It’s important to note that the 5se will not have the pressure-sensitive 3D Touch like the one on the 6S, and this new model will replace the 5s like what the company did to its iPhone 5 and 5c. The new iPhone is reported to be currently in production and will be introduced in March this year.

    why come up with this iphone still?

    • To recycle, then sell them at a very absurd price

      Because no other company provides a powerful 4″ mobile phone! Name an powerful Android phone that can match 5s’ power and beauty in a 4″ package…

      I’ll definitely wait for this for my renewal this year! I’m too tired of holding big phones while driving.

      “powerful” apple fan boy detected, simpleng cherry mobile flare lite 2 lang kayang pataubin yang apple mo e.

      bat ano ba ginagawa mo sa phone pag nag ddrive? coc? nba 2k16? tss..

      lets face it, most people either own an iphone or want to own one. if youre a frugal person and dont want to spend a couple bucks for a phone, just dont buy the iphone and save your remarks as well, plenty of people that would take your place and buy one. not everyone wants an OMG 4gb ram octacore plastic phone. and not everyone cares about modding, jailbreaking or being able to transfer files offline to other phones. some of us prefer iphones, be secure enough with your choice of cherry mobile, ill be secure with my choice of iphone.

    • klky says:

      Mediumsteve, well wla ako pake sa iniisip mo. Di porket may sinabi akong cherry mobile na product e yan na ang ko.. Im not “frugal”pag dating sa gadgets especially sa smartphones. Ang sinabi niya wala daw company na makakagawa ng “powerful” na phone. Kung sa software lang kayang kaya ng cherry mobile yan. Pero kung papipiliin moko? I rather choose z5 compact. Dyan kana lang sa iphone 5shit mo

      tama Ric naku sinabi mo pa sana maging affortable na yan, kaya ako hindi naka nag upgrade sa 5c eh ang mahal naman kasi d tulad ng LG bukod na mas mura eh mas maganda talaga ang features compare sa ios.

    • oona says:

      @KLKY, probably hindi ka makarelate dahil wala ka siguro kotse and hindi mo alam pano mag text sa malaking phone while your other hand is on the wheel. And I don’t play games on my phone so I don’t care about your coc or nba, For me it’s getting the best 4″ phone. Kung nagbabasa ka maigi 4″ powerful phone ang ibig ko sabihin. And no, hindi ako fanboy ng Apple kasi naka Android ako ngayon.

  2. They should rename it as iPhone 5Re as in RECYCLED

    I like this move. I would like to have a 4 inch iPhone again. Too bad there’s no 3D Touch. It’s also sad that Apple keeps on releasing new product line (not new category) unlike before where there is only one choice of iPhone. I guess nowadays screen size is really a deal breaker for most of us. Some like it big, some like it small.

    First of all don’t text while driving, kaya mraming naaksidente dhil sa maling habit . Another one, powerful 4″ phone?IP5s is good looking, but powerful, I think not, maybe power hog, pwede pa, kaya nga wall-huggers tawag sa Apple fans dati eh (ksi ngaun power bank huggers na daw?) or so I heard.

    Anyway, my bago nga plang nilabas na smart case to enhance battery? (cute nga itsura) mag mumukhang kuba ung phone mo, well at least matagal ang battery life.

    IPhones are good phones, may flaws nga lng like any other device.

    have the Priv by way ^_^
