Apple has scheduled an event on 21st March. We are expecting three major releases on the day – the 4 inch iPhone, Apple iPad 3 and an upgraded Apple Watch. The newer iPad will basically be targeting those customers who’d love the performance capabilities of the iPad Pro minus the 12.9″ screen size and sky-high price. Therefore the iPad 3 will be running a A9X chipset along with 4GB of RAM, feature quad-speakers while support compatibility with Apple Pencil and Smart Keyboard. As far as the refreshed Apple Watch is concerned, reports are that the new watch might surface with Apple FaceTime support.
Coming towards the 4 inch iPhone, the title of the smartphone has been controversial so far. Previous rumors suggested that the upcoming smartphone will be called the iPhone 5se, however recently leaked alleged photo of its retail box claims that the handset will be called the “iPhone SE“.
Apart from the title, we can also observe the 16GB marking which suggests that the smartphone will be offered with the base storage option. Rumors hints towards a 64 GB variant of the iPhone SE instead of 32GB. A credible Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo claims that the iPhone SE will feature a 12 megapixel rear snapper instead of the previously rumored 8 megapixel camera. Mr Kuo further speculated that the upcoming smartphone will be somewhere in between $400 to $500 and will be offering two different storage options – 16GB and 64 GB. Furthermore the device will pack a 1642 mAh battery along with Bluetooth 4.2 and WiFi 802.11ac under the hood. In addition to that, Apple iPhone SE is expected to be powered by the same A9 chipset that is found under the hood of the Apple iPhone 6s and Apple iPhone 6s Plus. Despite the lack of 3D Touch, it will reportedly offer Live Photos. NFC and Apple Pay are both said to be supported, along with Touch ID.
Please note that faking these retail boxes takes minute effort. To stay updated with the official announcements on 21st March, keep visiting TechBeasts.
