Apple has just put us on the Delorean and moved us to an alternative 2020 in which the iPhone SE is presented again . On this occasion, Apple has renewed its low-cost mobile to try to reach a wider audience. It is a response that responds to the poor results that Apple has experienced in previous years, despite the fact that the numbers of the iPhone 11 are being satisfactory for the company.
The original iPhone SE was released in 2016 and gave millions of users the opportunity to get closer to Apple’s phone, far from the figures of the standard models. In this way, the new iPhone SE of 2020, takes that premise as inheritance but adapting the hardware to current needs. The original iPhone SE had a 4-inch screen , something unthinkable today.
A retro design with a new brain
This low-cost iPhone comes with a design reminiscent of the iPhone 8, but with the same brain as the iPhone 11, that is, with the A13 Bionic chip. This means that it will be more modest in some technical sections such as the camera, but that it will offer a performance similar to that of its older brothers in a more compact size. However, the times advance and the terminal will have versions of 64, 128 and 256 GB, more in line with current times, despite the fact that its design continues to recall past times.
The new iPhone SE 2020 has a 4.7-inch screen and large frames, something that Apple has not solved in this new model. This screen size will delight nostalgics again, who have spent years demanding a return to the most compact sizes. We also found a touch ID start button, another return to the past in Cupertino’s DeLorean. Thanks to this size, the device can boast of dimensions and weight that are no longer seen in a mobile launched in full 2020 and that reach 67.3 x 138.4 x 7.3 mm, 148 grams.
Big Brother Processor
The good news is that the device will have all the power of the in-house A13 Bionic processor, present in the iPhone 11. The terminal will arrive with 64, 128 or 256 GB versions. Apple has recalled that this processor has a machine learning system, with an independent eight-core Neural Engine capable of processing five billion operations per second, two machine learning accelerators in the CPU and the new machine learning controller to find the balance between performance and efficiency.
On the back we find a 12 megapixel sensor consisting of six lenses, which have OIS, white balance, HDR , portrait mode or video recording in 4K at 60fps. It also has a selfie sensor that reaches 7 megapixels. Apple boasts a single camera, claiming it is the most advanced single-camera iPhone in its history. The main sensor is a 12 megapixel wide-angle and ƒ / 1.8 aperture, which features six Portrait Lighting and Depth Control effects. You can also record a QuickTake video with either of the two cameras without exiting Photo mode.
Battery with fast charge
Another improvement that this new iPhone SE from 2020 was born in 2020, is that it has fast charging and wireless charging . You can charge up to 50% in 30 minutes and have sixth generation Wi-Fi networks. It is also DualSIM and in countries where it is compatible, it will be possible to use eSIM.
