The iPhone SE 2020 is Apple’s brand-new cheap iPhone, starting at just Rs 42,500, and it still offers the features, camera, and screen size of something that’s been much more costly today.
The latest iPhone SE is not named the iPhone 9, as some had predicted, as the company opted to use the SE name for the first time in 2016 (so we’re calling it the iPhone SE 2020 for clarification here – and no, Apple hasn’t officially told us what the SE stands for).
It effectively replaces and upgrades the iPhone 8 (which is now discontinued and redirects Apple’s product page to the iPhone SE 2020) while retaining the same price point as the original iPhone SE.
Release date: The release date of the iPhone SE 2020 is scheduled for Friday, April 24, and pre-orders are now available. They began on Friday, April 17th via the official website of Apple and other retailers.
Design and display: It is backward compatible with all iPhone 8 cases and has the same 4.7-inch Retina HD monitor as seen on the last model with a sharpness of 326 pixels per inch (1334 x 750).
Uses the Haptic Touch device that Apple has introduced to the iPhone 11 series, where a long press would activate a separate menu and buzz designed to mimic the feel of a physical click. You’re going to be able to unlock your phone using your fingerprint instead of using the Face ID.
Battery life and specs:
Dimensions: 138.4 x 67.3 x 7.3mm
Display size: 4.7-inch
Resolution: 1334 x 750
Pixel density: 326ppi
Chip: A13 Bionic
Storage: 64GB / 128GB / 256GB
Rear camera: 12MP
Front camera: 7MP
Apple says the battery life of the iPhone SE would be the same as that of the iPhone 8, given the more power-efficient A13 chip.
Camera specs: This will be built on similar specs to those used in the iPhone 8, which comes with a 12MP sensor and an f/1.8 aperture for relatively good low-light images – but it will be a far cry from the iPhone 11 range’s high-end camera features.
