The report, which comes from 9to5Mac’s Mark Gurman, says the upcoming device will be based on the design 5S, not the iPhone 7, which is rumored to be ditching the headphone jack.
Instead, the handset will have the same curved glass display, A8 chip and 8 megapixel rear-facing camera as the iPhone 6. It will also be equipped with NFC, so it will support Apple Pay, a barometric sensor and will be able to shoot Live Photos. It will come in the same color varieties as the iPhone 6S, including a rose gold version.
Notably, The iPhone5SE will not support Live Photos, the device won’t support 3D Touch.
Once the iPhone 5SE — the “se” apparently stands for “special edition” — goes on sale, Apple will stop selling the iPhone 5S, which first went on sale in 2013. The new handset will cost the same as the $450 5S does now. It’s not clear exactly when the phone will go on sale, but Gurman says Apple will likely introduce the handset at an event in March with the new iPhone going on sale at the end of March or early April.
