Is this Apple's rumored 'iPhone SE'?

With the rumor mill spinning full speed ahead of next week’s Apple event, YouTube channel Beeep says that it may have spotted the tech giant’s rumored iPhone SE in China.

A video shot in Huaqiangbei Shenzhen China, the so-called "silicon valley of hardware," purports to show the new 4-inch Apple phone. Unlike the ‘sharper’ edges of the iPhone 5s, the new phone has rounded edges, and weighs about the same as the 5s, according to a woman in the video.

While the video has sparked plenty of interest, Apple watchers say that there is no way to confirm whether the device is genuine.  The phone, for example, may be a mock-up of what the iPhone SE is rumored to look like, says iPhone Hacks.

BGR also strikes a cautious note, but adds that the phone may be a dummy model assembled from real iPhone SE components.

Speculation has been rife about the products that Apple could launch at the event, including the iPhone SE, a 9.7-inch iPad Air 3 and even Apple Watch 2. An update to the tech giant's Mac products could also be on deck.
