iPhone SE 2020 release date
iPhone SE 2020 design and features
Black. White. Or red. In a small 4.7” design. With studio-quality portraits. Sharp 4K video. Long battery life. A13 Bionic — the fastest chip in a smartphone. And the security of Touch ID, with privacy built in. iPhone SE. Lots to love. And less to spend.
The iPhone SE 2020 is a 4.7-inch design with Apple’s A13 Bionic chip (same as iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro).
A13 Bionic was built with a focus on machine learning, with a dedicated 8-core Neural Engine capable of 5 trillion operations per second, two Machine Learning Accelerators on the CPU and a new Machine Learning Controller to balance performance and efficiency. Together, A13 Bionic and iOS 13 enable new intelligent apps that make use of machine learning and Core ML®.
The new iPhone also includes the ability to take 4K video (60 fps) along with a 12-megapixel f/1.8 aperture Wide camera. It uses the image signal processor and Neural Engine of A13 Bionic to allow for even more benefits of computational photography, including Portrait Mode, Six Portrait Lighting effects, and Depth Control.
If you still prefer Touch ID over Face ID, you’ll love the iPhone SE 2020 as it retains the popular home button. The new iPhone is also water- and dust-resistant with an IP67 rating for water resistance up to 1 meter for 30 minutes.
iPhone SE 2020 Communication Technology
As we discovered from beta code, the iPhone SE does also feature support for “Express Cards with power reserve” to allow for authentication even when your iPhone runs out of juice. That will come in handy for Express Transit and also for Apple’s upcoming CarKey feature.
However, one piece of networking hardware the new iPhone SE doesn’t have is Apple’s Ultra Wideband chip that’s in the iPhone 11 series. That helps with more seamless AirDrop sharing for now and in the future is expected to work with Apple’s upcoming AirTags.
iPhone SE 2020 pricing
The price starts at $399 for the 64GB model. The 128GB model is $449. The 256 GB model is $549. With a trade-in, the new iPhone can be purchased for even less money out of pocket.
