If you were excited by the prospect of a new, smaller iPhone SE — a new video showing off a 3D printed model and leaked case may get you all worked up.

The well known Sonny Dickson, who has some friends down Apple’s supply chain, sent a case over to TechSmartt. From there, the crew 3D printed a phone based on the dimensions.

Talk of the SE being an iPhone 5s clone may not be accurate. As you’ll see, an iPhone 5s doesn’t fit in the case very well; it’s a bit too bulky.

Really, the curved 3D printed model is a bit slimmer and sexier than the 5s. One thing you may not be into is the protruding camera, like the iPhone 6 has.

Anyway, no more talk — check the video out, and be sure to check out all the news this Monday from Apple’s event to see just how accurate this all is.
