So, this is what the iPhone mini will look like!

So, this is what the iPhone mini will look like!

Although Apple's iPhone 7 won't be out for a few more months, Apple's follow-up to the iPhone 6s is coming out in just a few days. Here's what we know about it, including how it looks.

First, the iPhone SE isn't replacing the 6s. It's meant to be a powerful iPhone that's accessible to more people. Meaning, this 4-inch iPhone will be more affordable than its flashier siblings.

It will replace the 4-inch iPhone 5s, and it'll look more like it than a miniature iPhone 6s. It'll have curved edges but a boxier profile than the 6s. (See photos.)

As for specs, iPhone SE will have a 12MP rear-facing camera and it'll use Apple's A9 processor. Plus, it'll incorporate near-field communication (NFC), which uses radio signals to make Apple Pay financial transactions.

It will use Apple's biometric security feature, Touch ID fingerprint access. Instead of typing in a password, just place your finger on the screen. That'll unlock it.

To open this iPhone, its lock button may be on the right-hand side of it, not on the top. But some leaked designs show it remaining on top. (See drawings next page.)

The price, however, may be Apple SE's best feature for many people around the world. The current rumor is it'll start at $400 or so, without a contract.

Note: Apple will unveil iPhone SE on Monday, March 21 at 10 a.m. Pacific time. We'll keep you up to date on Apple's new products revealed that day, likely also including a new iPad and Apple Watch features. Keep reading Happening Now for all the latest iPhone news.
