Tomorrow, the 21st of March, Apple will be hosting an event in which they are believed to reveal a smaller iPad pro, various software updates, and possibly some new Apple Watch bands. Yet, the thing most people are excited for is the rumored iPhone 5SE.  So what do we expect the iPhone 5SE (or as I like to call it, the iPhone mini) to look like?

Apple Event - March Keynote

Ever since the launch of the 4.7″ iPhone 6 and the 5.5″ iPhone 6 Plus in 2014, there have been quite a few rumors that Apple had a smaller device in the works. Considering the fact that many people refrained from upgrading from the iPhone 5s because they liked having a smaller device, it would only make sense that Apple would take advantage. We may just see this rumor verified very soon.

Leaked images lead us to believe that the rumored 5SE will be comparable in size to the iPhone 5s (4 inch screen size), and will have the newer features such as Touch ID, Live Photos and curved edges. 3D Touch is a feature that will most likely not be included in this device, but who knows? Apple may surprise us! The SE should also be rocking the A9 processor and we may only see 1GB of RAM.  It will have Bluetooth 4.2 and 802.11ac WiFi.  This device is said to support Apple Pay and will have a NFC chip.

What do we know about battery life? Well currently only Apple knows for sure, but many think the iPhone 5SE will have a 1,624 mAh battery which is 64 mAh larger than the iPhone 5s.  Battery life should be about the same as the 5s with up to 250 hours standby time and 10 hours talk time.

The iPhone 5SE should be available in Gold, Silver, Rose Gold, and Space Gray (or maybe Apple will choose to use the colors of their iPods).  The price will likely start from $400 for the 16 GB model and increase as you upgrade the storage capacity.
