Previous reports suggest the upcoming 4-inch iPhone will have the same hardware specifications as the iPhone 5s but with a curved glass design seen in iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s. it is said to be powered by A8 SoC and M8 motion coprocessor. Other features tipped around the iPhone 5se include an 8-megapixel iSight (rear camera), and a 1.2-megapixel FaceTime (front-facing camera).
