AnandTech’s iPhone SE Review

Speaking of the iPhone SE, Brandon Chester has just completed his in-depth review of the iPhone SE for AnandTech. There’s obviously a lot to digest here, but I want to highlight two sentences in particular:

It’s probably no surprise at this point, but the iPhone SE is going to be a familiar phone. With essentially the same chassis as the iPhone 5s, the iPhone SE marks the first time that Apple has used the same design in three generations of an iPhone.

I wonder if the SE is Apple’s way of setting an expectation for three generations of iPhone using the same chassis.1 Current rumours regarding this year’s big iPhone models indicate a hardware design that’s largely consistent with the current iPhone models.

  1. As far as I’m concerned, Apple can keep issuing new phones that look like the 5, 5S, and SE. What a classic piece of industrial design. ↩︎
