The tech world is looking forward to September, when one of the biggest events of the year, the launch of a new iPhone, is schedule. Most likely, we will see two handsets being unveiled, the new iPhone 7 and its bigger variant, iPhone 7 Plus. However, there are rumors about a third iPhone making its debut during the same event.
iPhone 6 SE? This sounds a bit too strange…
Dutch site Techtastic received a set of pictures from China with a smartphone called iPhone 6 SE, which is at least surprising. Of course, our first thoughts were that this is just a Photoshopped image, but after a closer look, we can admit that these images look pretty accurate.
The specs from the back of the box were removed, so we can’t tell that the iPhone 6 SE is just an upgraded version of the iPhone SE launching this spring. The phone’s paperwork was also revealed, depicting the phone’s contour.
However, we believe that we’re dealing with a fake, due to some simple reasons. First of all, if the iPhone 6 SE would be launched, considering what Apple did with the iPhone SE, it could be an iPhone 6 with a few upgraded internals. This wouldn’t make sense at all.
Why hide the specs from the back? Something doesn’t add up
Also, we can’t see why all the information on the back of the box was removed. If this is indeed an iPhone 6 SE, the specs should be revealed, in order to end all discussions.
Keeping it short, we don’t think that Apple will reveal a third iPhone next month, sticking just to the new iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. Still, it could be possible to see a new cheaper model next year, if the Cupertino-based manufacturer decides to follow the same release path as they did the past year.
