Apple iPhone SE vs iPhone 5S vs iPhone 5C: Design
The Apple iPhone 5C measures 124.4 x 59.2 x 8.97mm and weighs 132g. It comes in white, pink, yellow, blue and green colour options and it features a plastic shell casing.
The Apple iPhone 5S measures 128.8 x 58.6 x 7.6mm and hits the scales at 112g. It features an aluminium body that comes in silver or space grey colour options.
The Apple iPhone SE has had several rumours floating around regarding its design. Some claim it will be a development of the 5S, while others have said it will feature elements of the iPhone 6 and 6S. The most recent speculation suggests the iPhone SE will be almost identical to the iPhone 5S but with slightly rounded corners and matte edges.
It is thought the iPhone SE will the same 7.6mm thickness as the current iPhone 5S and built in aluminium rather than plastic like the iPhone 5C, which was what was originally thought. Other rumours claim the iPhone SE will come in the same colours as the iPhone 6S, which if true would mean silver, space grey, gold and rose gold colour offerings.
The iPhone 5C launched before Touch ID did meaning there is no fingerprint sensor on board the colourful little device. There is however on the iPhone 5S, although it doesn’t support Apple Pay. It is thought the iPhone SE will have both Touch ID within the home button, and NFC on board to support Apple Pay.
