Photos of 'iPhone SE' Screen Display Confirm No 3D Touch

The first purported component leak for the so called iPhone SE has emerged via Nowhereelse.fr. The images claim to depict a screen assembly of the upcoming 4-inch iPhone.

Part leaks have been notably absent for the iPhone SE, despite rumors that the new device will launch in the middle of March -- only three weeks away.

The new images seems to confirm that 3D Touch components are absent from the 4-inch device. This is consistent with rumors to date that suggest the 4-inch iPhone will incorporate Live Photo support, but not 3D Touch, which is considered a flagship feature for the iPhone 6s line.

The leaked images are said to be captured by a source that on "several occasions in the past proved to be reliable".

The iPhone SE is expected to be announced during a March 15th media event.

In my perfect Apple world, Apple would just offer the iPhone 6S in three sizes. They have become so erratic with names and product design in recent years that it actually annoys me.

"Bigger battery, better camera, larger storage space" > "3D touch". Do you use 3D touch? No, I don't.

I've had almost every iphone since the iphone 1 and I don't see myself switching to android anytime soon but I'm slowly becoming less and less of an "apple fanboy".

No 3D touch on a "new" apple device which will probably have a "new apple device" premium price is just ridiculous.
