News & Reviews: Apple iPhone 5e
Feb 19, 2016
We've already heard plenty of Apple rumours about the “iPhone 5se” and iPad Air 3 over a couple of weeks, but we got some worthy insider information from Bloomberg confirming the devices' key processor details.
According to Johny Srouji, Apple's SVP of Hardware Technologies who oversees Apple's chip development, both devices will use Apple's latest chip technologies. The iPhone 5se will be equipping the same A9 processor from the iPhone 6s, whereas the iPad Air 3 will feature the A9X processor that was first used in the iPad Pro. It should be noted that this is the first time that the Air 3 will feature a processor from many previous rumours, so Bloomberg's information should be worth highlighting.

According to BuzzFeed's John Paczkowski and 9to5Mac, both sites have claimed that Apple will have an event planned for 15 March (Tuesday) this year to announce and showcase the three rumoured products – the 4-inch iPhone “5se”, iPad Air 3, and a second generation Apple Watch.
A round-up from all our rumoured news of those three products, the iPhone “5se” is said to sport an A9 chip with M9 motion coprocessor, 1GB RAM, 16GB and 64GB storage variant, Bluetooth 4.2, Apply Pay, VoLTE and WiFi connection support, and a 1624 mAh battery. 3D Touch might not be included so it can be different from the iPhone 6s.

If you've been following us for quite some time now, you'd be familiar with the rumours of the 4-inch iPhone or the “iPhone 6c” going around in the internet. Well just recently, a Chinese website called cnBeta claimed that the new 4-inch iPhone will be called the “Apple iPhone 5e” (why not 5D though?) and the sources they got is from Foxconn.
So what they do know about the “iPhone 5e”? Well according to them, the 5e will be Apple's latest entry-level smartphone and will represent an “enhanced” iPhone 5s. It will run on an A8 chip and 1GB RAM, carry 16GB and 64GB storage, and will have an 8MP iSight camera for the back. The body is said to be thinner and lighter than the iPhone 5s too with 2.5D cover glass like the iPhone 6s.
