“These are brand new, unopened, and unlocked models with unchanged tech specs, including a 4-inch retina display, A9 chip, touch ID, and 12-MP rear camera,” MacRumors reported on Sunday.

The device has been popular among users of smaller smartphones and those who preferred the iPhone 5-like design.

However, famed Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo raised doubts on the possibility of a new iPhone SE but in July 2018 a research firm claimed that the company has abandoned its plans for a new iPhone SE, the report said.
