Apple is expected to officially unveil its iPhone SE (Special Edition) on March 21, but the highly anticipated smartphone has been already spotted in Huaqianbei Shenzhen, China -- a place also referred to by some as the “Silicon Valley of Hardware”.

Nick Beeep, a YouTube user, sent International Business Times Australia several photos (seen in slideshow above) and a video that shows the alleged iPhone SE smartphone. In the YouTube video (from 0:51), a vendor can be seen showing the 4-inch iPhone SE that is currently under the wraps by Apple.

Previously leaked photos of the iPhone SE as well as its purported cases have hinted that the smartphone will be borrowing its design from the 4-inch IPhone 5S as well as the current generation iPhone 6S. In the leaked video, the Apple iPhone SE is described as a “mixed blood of the iPhone 5S and iPhone 6S”.

The freshly leaked photos of the iPhone SE also shows that it will be sporting rounded edges and a raised camera module, as well as a thicker form factor. The positioning of the volume rockers looks similar to that of the iPhone 6S. However, IBTimes Australia cannot verify the authenticity of the smartphones pictured or featured in the video.

The Apple iPhone SE is expected to be powered by Apple A9 chipset and 1 GB of RAM. It is expected to feature 16 GB and 64 GB storage options, while speculations indicate that it will come in multiple colours -- Space Gray, Silver, Gold and Rose Gold.

Apple is also pegged to announce a new tablet on March 21 that is described as the successor model of the iPad Air 3, as well as a smaller version of the 12.9-inch iPad Pro. This alleged 9.7-inch iPad Pro will be borrowing specs like Apple A9X chipset, 4 GB of RAM, quad speakers from the 12.9-inch iPad Pro. It is also expected to house a flash for its rear-facing camera.
