Price aside, there is an Apple's efforts on its price list, softer across the Atlantic, $ 399 for 16GB and $ 500 for 64GB. Apple will not propose intermediate model in 32 or 64 GB.

Keynote iPhone SE: (almost) all of a 6s iPhone, but in a 4-inch screen
The iPhone SE was expected, and the iPhone SE was well appointment.
