The new model, the iPhone SE, which will hit the market on April 24, is the second generation of the previous cheaper model. The model will be priced at $50 cheaper than the company’s previous cheaper iPhone, the iPhone 8, which started at $449 and will retire at the same time.
With $399, you can get the unlocked model with 64GB. You can also order larger, 128GB and 256GB models for $449 and $549, respectively.
The SE comes with a 4.7-inch screen LCD which Apple calls it Retina, but its not as good as the OLED screen on today flagship models, and looks identical to the iPhone 8. SE lacks 5G technology and a face detection system to unlock the device, and instead has a fingerprint sensor similar to older models. The most important technological feature in this new iPhone is the chip system. Apple has placed in the same chip that has iPhone 11 Pro lines. It’s an eight-core A13 Bionic processor and integrated GPU.
The front-facing camera system does not have TrueDepth technology for FaceID. The rear camera has a single sensor but it is equipped with the best software tools to increase its quality. Portrait Mode, Smart HDR, automatic white light balance are some of them.
In terms of connectivity there is a Lightning connector. Charged with Qi wireless technology and has fast charging technology. Comes with Wi-Fi 6, two rear cards, e-SIM technology and fast LTE and has IP67 rating which is really incredible for a phone at this price range.
The iPhone SE comes with the latest version of iOS, that of iOS 13.
Apple will start selling the new online model at a time when its stores around the world remain closed, except in China. The company will start accepting orders for this phone on Friday, while the distribution of equipment is expected to start on April 24.
