Apple launched the successor to its more affordable iPhone SE after around four years on Wednesday. Dubbed as the new iPhone SE, the new iPhone is set at a starting price of $399. It can be a good option for buyers who have been long hoping for more affordable iPhones. However, it won’t be an understatement to say it doesn’t really compare with the more recent members of the iPhone family such as iPhone 11 or iPhone X.
iPhone SE 2020 looks much like an iPhone 8 and brings back both the bezels and the Touch ID home button. However, to the buyer’s delight, it will be powered by the latest A13 Bionic processor which also features in the iPhone 11 series.
Moreover, the company has also boosted its photographic capabilities, despite having only a single rear camera sensor of 12-megapixels. Apple has claimed that it sports the best ever single rear camera sensor in an iPhone. Additionally, it is said to offer improved Smart HDR photography, monocular depth sensing for better portraits, as well as optical image and video stabilisation.
Key Features and Specs of iPhone SE 2020

Moreover, it offers support for 18W fast charging as well as Qi wireless charging. However, you would have to additionally buy the fast charging adapter as it only comes with the 5W charger. Furthermore, you won’t find any headphone jack in the iPhone SE and would need adapter for wired earphones.
