It's not the iPhone 7 but it's still something pretty special. Apple have launched the brand new iPhone SE. 

The arrival of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus seemed to herald a new 'bigger is better' mindset from Apple, however the latest addition to the family seems to suggest they far from done with small smartphones. 

The iPhone SE is a 4 inch phone whose design largely resembles the iPhone 5s but what's inside is much more in line with a modern day performance. The SE incorporates many of the features that make the 6 and 6s great but has transplanted them into a 5s body. 

The iPhone SE runs iOS 9.3 and supports Live Photos. It comes with the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus's 64-bit A9 processor and M9 motion coprocessor and 12-megapixel iSight camera with 4K video recording and 240 fps slow-motion. The iPhone SE has the new faster Touch ID fingerprint sensor from the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus, Apple Pay, faster Wi-Fi, faster LTE and Bluetooth 4.2. Apple also says it has improved the battery life. 

It'll be available in four colors: silver, space gray, gold and rose gold.

The Irish prices has yet to be announced but the US prices might give us some indication. The 16 GB model will cost $399 while the 64 GB version will go for $499.
