    Not sure if anyone have seen this...

    This is a screenshot of an video that Tim Cook posted on Weibo when Apple Pay's first launch in China.
    I'm pretty sure this is definitely not any models which has been public released. You can see the difference of screen edge between this and 6s or 6s plus.

    And the length ration of the volume button to the who body is quite different from 6s. It looks smaller than the iPhone 6s. But the screen must be bigger than 4.0' inch on the iPhone 5s.

    Do you guys think it is the rumored "iPhone SE"?

    That's an interesting video, though I doubt it's the iPhone SE or 7. Apple's usually very careful about things like this.

    I know Apple's usually don't make this kind of mistake. But this video only has been posted on Weibo. Only some people in China have seen this. Tim might just be negligent

    I'm still skeptical, but this does help in imagining what the iPhone 7 could look like, and from what I see, it's exactly what I would expect.

    The iPhone 5 was the first iPhone to reduce the sizes of the bezels, and it was only a little bit bigger than the iPhone 4. This time around, I expect the iPhone 7 to be the next iPhone to reduce bezel-size while being a bit smaller than the iPhone 6.

    Nice post, by the way. I hadn't seen that image :)

    Often things of this nature are just inexact rendering or photoshop type of work rather than anything else.

    Wow. It does look to big to be an SE, but given that Pay is coming to UnionPay next month, maybe this is it.

    Ha, wow, I wouldn't have noticed had you not pointed this out. I hope that the iPhone 7 takes cues from the phone in this video; a reduced footprint would be great.

    Looks like an iPhone 6/6s to me, but the simulated screen is poorly edited in, so it's a little too big.

    It was also rumored that iPhone 7 had very thin bezels, this corresponds, but it's probably poorly edited screen...

    I don't think it's poorly edited, they might have made the screen bigger to make it a little bit more readable.
