Since last year, Apple inc. was reported to be working on a smaller version of iPhone which was later revealed to be 4-inch phone. Previously, nothing much was known about the smartphone but specifications and pricing details of this upcoming smartphone have surfaced.
iPhone 5SE, as Apple is going to call this smartphone, is an upgraded version of previously launched iPhone 5S. Apart from a smaller 4-inch display iPhone 5SE features some worth mentioning specifications which include NFC and VOLTE (Voice Over LTE) support.

iPhone 5SE will be available in two variants – 1GB RAM + 16GB internal storage and 1.2GB RAM + 64GB internal storage. As far the battery a 1624mAh cell is fueling the compact smartphone. Not much, but then, Apple phones are hardly known for their battery capacities.
Foxconn insiders have revealed that iPhone 5SE has gone into mass production and from this week full-fledged production will start. By the time of launch around one can expect around 3 million units to be available for purchase.
iPhone 5SE is reportedly priced at 3688 Yuan ($560) for the 16GB variant and not 3288 Yuan ($500) as it was previously rumored. But this higher price tag could be for the 64GB variant. Unfortunately, we can’t confirm this right now, but expect more details soon.
