Recent rumors have claimed that Apple’s upcoming iPhone SE will look almost identical to 2013’s iPhone 5s — and now those claims have been backed up by a trio of new case renders published by Spigen.
If you didn’t know any better, you would think these were just iPhone 5s cases, but according to MacRumors — which obtained the images you see above — they were created for the new 4-inch iPhone that Apple is expected to announce later this month.
Just like iPhone 5s, the device depicted here has round volume buttons, a rear-facing camera that sits flush with the back of the device, and a home button situated on its top edge. It’s certainly not the mini iPhone 6s that other reports and leaks suggested it might be.
Spigen, a major accessory manufacturer, is often one of the first to market with cases for new Apple devices — so there is a possibility these renders are accurate. However, case makers have been wrong in the past, so we shouldn’t read too much into them just yet.
Apple is expected to hold its iPhone SE event on March 21. The device will reportedly pack an A9 processor, a 12-megapixel iSight camera, Touch ID, and Apple Pay — but no 3D Touch. It could cost as little as $400 off-contract.
