Apple’s existing 4.7-inch iPhone 8
Earlier this afternoon, rumours claimed Apple was set to launch its 4.7-inch iPhone called ‘iPhone SE’ (not on Friday, April 3. Now we’re seeing evidence to corroborate that naming scheme of iPhone SE, thanks to Apple itself.
Owner of YouTube channel Zollotech, Aaron Zollo, shared a screenshot of Apple.com and a product listing for the Belkin InvisiGlass Ultra Screen Protector for ‘iPhone SE / 8 / 7’, along with an image of the existing iPhone 7/8.
“Belkin InvisiGlass Ultra, made with Accessory Glass 2 by Corning, provides impressively durable and scratch-resistant screen protection for your iPhone. Thanks to the application of a chemically strengthened ion-exchange process to its ultra-thin aluminosilicate glass, InvisiGlass Ultra sets a new standard for glass screen protection while fully preserving your experience of using the iPhone Multi-Touch display,” reads the product description.
If there was a glass screen protector for the old 3.5-inch iPhone SE, it would be showing on its own product page as the designs are different.
This Belkin screen protector with the ‘iPhone SE’ name is also on Apple Canada’s website as of writing, priced at $49.95 CAD.
If anything, we should find out by early Friday morning if Apple will indeed launch a 2020 iPhone SE, sporting the same design as the iPhone 8. The phone is rumoured to come in three colours and have storage options from 64GB to 256GB. Previous rumours for starting prices were pegged at $399 USD ($565 CAD after exchange).
Apple.ca currently sells the 4.7-inch iPhone 8 for $599/$669 (64GB/128GB) and 5.5-inch iPhone 8 Plus for $749/$819 ($64GB/128GB). Stay tuned, folks!
Also–Apple’s website still lists AppleCare+ for the iPhone SE at $129 in Canada. The listing itself still details iOS 12, so it could be an old page for the original iPhone SE.
