Apple has announced its latest iPhone with the launch of iPhone SE 2020. This iPhone has been largely speculated and been in the news since the launch of Apple’s flagship iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro MAX. The new iPhone will take you down the line of nostalgia as it resembles exactly the iPhone 8 launched in September 2017. People around the globe also call it the iPhone 9, which is just another name for the newest iPhone SE 2020. The phone is launched by a press-release due to the condition of the world fighting with the Corona Pandemic.
OnePlus recently released its flagship phones on 14th April OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro models, which is placed aggressively at the price point of $700 and $900 respectively to compete with the new Samsung Galaxy S20, and iPhone 11 lineup. iPhone SE 2020 is a smart move made by Apple releasing it after the launch of OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro, as more and more people want to upgrade their phones and also look at their budget. The iPhone SE price will be $399. This iPhone will surely dominate the budget phone market as the specifications are quite powerful and the phone will be performance package.
The new iPhone SE 2020 will come with 64GB storage and a 4.7-inch screen. There will be a 128GB model for $499 and a 256GB storage model for $549. The new phone will be available for pre-order on the 17th of April, it will be available in black, white, and (Product)Red colors. The new iPhone is an iPhone 8 with better specs and better cameras, housing an A13 Bionic chip which is the fastest in the smartphone. No plus-sized version will be available for the iPhone SE 2020. Apple even calling it the iPhone SE, and not iPhone SE 2 as the smartphone line follows.
iPhone’s new A13 processor also lets iPhone SE 2020 gain the new camera features. A single 12-megapixel camera lens on the backside of the iPhone with flash, Apple claims it is using smart HDR photography. Smart HDR feature combines multiple shots into a single photo which ultimately improves the lighting and details on the picture. The portrait mode comes with a new technology that Apple calls “monocular depth-sensing”. The new features use machine learning to detect face and depth, which is good but will only work on human faces, excluding pets, and objects. It also includes Optical Image Stabilization, also it can do climatic stabilization on videos as well as supports 4K video at 60FPS. The front-facing camera stands with a 7-megapixel which can do portrait mode selfies.
The phone completely resembles the iPhone 8, retaining its wireless charging. So the plus point for this is the cases for iPhone 8 will work on the new iPhone SE 2020. An iPhone looking like iPhone 8 which will perform like iPhone 11. The new SE 2020 will have a 4.7inch IPS-LCD Retina display with True Tone Colour, the same as iPhone 8. I personally like the form factor of the iPhone 8 as compared to the newer and bulkier iPhones.
The new phone will have the same goodies in the box as old phones, a 5W charger, a headphone, and a lightning cable. The phone is capable of fast charging with 18W charger, and Qi wireless charging. The phone will support WiFi 6, Gigabit LTE, and dual-sims. Dual sims will work the same as iPhone Xr and others, one being physical sim and other being the E-sim. New iPhone SE 2020 will have a haptic touch as Apple removed the 3D touch from their phones.
To roundoff, Apple has released a phone quite powerful as iPhone 11 in the housing of iPhone8 in the midst of this pandemic. Apple has given keen attention to the people who want to upgrade their phones but don’t have the big pockets to do so. This phone mainly focuses on the category of people who are still using their iPhone 6, iPhone 6s, iPhone 7, and iPhone 8. With the new camera and A13 Bionic chip, this phone is sure will be a great success for Apple.
