Supposed iPhone se design drawings show a striking resemblance to the iPhone 5s

A set of device drawings, supposedly of the iPhone se, have apparently leaked from a case manufacturer, and seem to back up previous reports that Apple's rumored new 4-inch iPhone will bear a close resemblance to the iPhone 5s. While there are some minor differences, including the power button placement on the side of the device and rounded edges, for the most part the phone in the drawings takes after the 2013 Apple flagship.

The drawings were first shared by 9to5Mac:

Note that while it isn't present in these drawings, the iPhone se is said to have a Touch ID Home button.

The iPhone se has been rumored for an announcement in mid-March. The 4-inch device will reportedly feature Apple's A9 system-on-a-chip, which made its debut in fall 2015 with the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus. It is also said to feature NFC for Apple Pay support.
