This new 2020 model features a 4.7-inch Retina display, and has a IP67 rating for water and dust-resistance, a classic Touch ID sensor, wireless charging, and a single, rear-facing camera. Most importantly, it’s powered by Apple’s latest A13 Bionic chipset. Tasty!
Taken from Engadget … the new iPhone SE, which Apple says will be available for pre-order starting on Friday, April 17th at 8AM Eastern.
There’s a lot to get into, but the iPhone SE was a device that was always defined by its price tag, so let’s get that out of the way first. Apple’s latest smartphone will be available in black, white and (PRODUCT) RED finishes, and in the following storage configurations:
- 64GB: $399
- 128GB: $449
- 256GB: $549
It’s worth noting that the base model SE costs $50 less than the comparable iPhone 8 Apple has just discontinued. (Curiously, the larger iPhone 8 Plus will continue to be sold in certain markets around the world.) This puts Apple in a surprisingly strong position to compete in a sea of mid-range devices, which is good news for iOS fans on a budget or small phone aficionados. The last time Apple released a dedicated value smartphone was in 2016 with the original iPhone SE, a device that squeezed modern (at the time) performance into beloved iPhone 5s body.
