Apple may be planning to drop the ‘5’ and name its new 4-inch phone the ‘iPhone SE’, reports 9to5Mac.In January, we reported that Apple is preparing a new 4-inch iPhone that is essentially 2013’s iPhone 5s with upgraded internals. At the time, we heard that Apple would call the device the “iPhone 5se” based on it being both an enhanced and “special edition” version of the iPhone 5s. Now, we are hearing that Apple appears to be going all in on the special edition factor: sources say that Apple has decided to drop the “5” from the device’s name and simply call it the “iPhone SE.” This will mark the first iPhone upgrade without a number in its name and would logically remove it from a yearly update cycle.As previously reported, the new 4-inch iPhone is believed to look very similar to the iPhone 5s but with slightly curved edges. It’s expected to feature a 4-inch display with a faster A9 processor, an M9 chip with support always-on Siri, curved glass, an 8MP camera, 1GB to 1.2GB of RAM, a 1624mAh battery, 16GB and 64GB storage options, NFC, Live Photos, and more.
