What’s special in iPhone SE 2020?

Now don’t expect premium features of the latest iPhone 11 series but yes it comes with ios 13( A13 Bionic Processor) which matches with iPhone 11 and 11 Pro. It’s a big thing that you are getting the A13 chip at this affordable price which Apple has not offered in any phone before and thus making a special stand for itself in the smartphones offered by that company. The main special features of iPhone SE 2020 are as follows:

  • A13 Bionic processor
  • 64GB/128GB/256GB of storage
  • 4.7in (1334×750 at 326 ppi) display, 625 nits brightness, 1400:1 contrast, True Tone
  • 12Mp (f/1.8) rear-facing camera with flash, Portrait mode, 4K video
  • 7Mp (f/2.2) front-facing camera, Portrait mode
  • IP67 water and dust resistance
  • 138.4 x 67.3 x 7.3 mm; 148g

It comes with a dual sim( GSM and GSM) which supports both Nano Sims and eSim as well. The camera offers 12Mp rear face camera which gives impressive pictures than the old model of iPhone SE. Apple has stated that the new phone is offering  almost 40% faster performance than the iphone 8. Yes, we do agree that one can easily snap between the apps and it is also supporting wireless charging feature and capable of fast charging too.

Anyhow, the phone comes in three variant colors i.e Black,White and Product Red with a water resistant feature. The 3.5mm headphone jack will be missing , so you need to buy an adapter if you are willing to use wired headphones. The battery life would be similar to that of iPhone 8 and can offer for about 12 hours of internet usage which will last about a day.

Those who are missing the home button and fingerprint enabled iPhone this will definitely make you happy . It uses the haptic touch function that can be found in recent iPhone 11 when holded for a long press will activate a separate menu. The notch will be missing in this model and will be replaced by a bezel at the top and bottom of the display.

So, if you are planning for upgrading to a new iPhone with latest chipset of ios 13 then this might be the perfect one to upgrade at an affordable cost, but still we prefer iPhone XR stands much better in comparision to the iPhone SE 2020.
