The latest reports however suggests that the roadmap isn’t exactly blind and white in that respect. Though, Apple is said to be testing multiple prototypes of the new 4-inch device with combination of A8/M8 chips, but other powered by the A9/M9 combo that currently powers the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus.

It looks like the iPhone 5se budget will be a lot more functional and powerful than what the early leaked reports suggested. Its being billed as a “budget” phone akin to the 5c device, altogether, it could also grab the place of as a capable smartphone that could essentially take the the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 in Apple’s iPhone lineup as far as users are concerned.
