Something is very different with the iPhone SE. The iPhone SE has not leaked yet, less than 24 hours ahead of Tim Cook taking the stage at the Apple March 21 event. Is it actually in production?
In less then 24 hours Apple is expected to reveal the iPhone SE. For the first time in years an Apple executive will hold something up on stage that has not been leaked ahead of an announcement. All new iPhones in the past years have leaked through parts or have been left in bar (sic!) ahead of the official announcement.

Update: 2 hours ahead of the Apple Event and no iPhone SE leaks anywhere in sight. The Apple Event will be exciting.
This situation raises a red flag. Can the iPhone SE actually be in production with no parts (apart from an alleged iPhone SE screen) leaking? There is a photo of an alleged 16GB iPhone SEpackage circulating, but these are one of the easiest things to fake. Apple is usually shipping a new iPhone rather close to the announcement. Therefore the iPhone SE would need to be in production since months to be launched in the next weeks.
The iPhone SE has been described so far only with words. All substantial iPhone SE information comes from 9to5Mac. Their latest report says that the iPhone SE will be almost identical to the iPhone 5S. Rumors earlier suggested a more up-to-date design following the iPhone 6S.
There is no proof of any sorts besides 9to5Mac's report that the iPhone SE is indeed a retro iPhone 5S. Available iPhone SE cases support iPhone 5S looks as well as an iPhone 6S design. Watch below a video by TechSmartt that shows an iPhone SE dummy created by 3D scanning an alleged iPhone SE case. The result is an iPhone SE with more rounded sides similar to the iPhone 6S.
The features of the iPhone SE are said to be identical with the iPhone 6S. Only missing feature is 3D Touch. This means the iPhone SE runs on the same chips (A9, M9) and offers always on Siri, Apple Pay and a 12MP camera that can record 4K video.
If there is no leak of the iPhone SE in the next hours than the Apple March 21 media event will be really exciting. Let's see if Apple indeed found a way to stop parts leaking from it's Asian supply chain.
The Apple Media Event on March 21 at the Apple headquarters in Cupertino begins at 10am PDT. There will be a live online stream available of the event.
Apple is expected to unveil the 4-inch iPhone SE, a new small iPad Pro and new Apple Watch models. Read the latest iPhone SE News.
