Not even a pandemic could stop Apple from releasing the brand-new 2020 iPhone SE. It comes in three colors and starts at $399.
The rumors were true, and the new 2020 iPhone SE is finally here! It looks exactly like the 2017 iPhone 8, with a 4.7-inch screen, a Home button with a fingerprint sensor, a glass back, and a single camera lens.
But it’s what’s on the inside that really counts. The 2020 iPhone SE is powered by the same tech and processors that run the iPhone 11 lineup.
Phil Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of worldwide marketing, introduced the new iPhone SE as the continuity of the first edition: unique and high-end performance at an affordable price:
“The first iPhone SE was a hit with many customers who loved its unique combination of small size, high-end performance, and affordable price. The new second-generation SE builds on that great idea and improves on it in every way — including our best-ever single-camera system for great photos and videos — while still being very affordable.”
Starting at $399, the iPhone SE 2002 costs $300 less than the cheapest version of the iPhone 11.
However, with the lower price comes some sacrifice. There is no face recognition front-camera, and no night mode to take pictures in total darkness. However, it does come with a 12-megapixel camera that has portrait mode, lighting effects, and depth control like newer iPhones do.
It also has the ability to record videos in 4K resolution and supports wireless charging, which is nice to have.
The 2020 iPhone SE comes in three colors — black, white, and [RED] — and three storage sizes — 64, 128, and 256 GB. It will be available for preorder this Friday (April 17), from the Apple website.
It will start shipping on April 24.
