iPhone SE (2020) is finally official, after months of anticipation.
With it, Apple has unveiled the most affordable iPhone version in its present lineup. Called the new iPhone SE, it was originally rumored to introduction as the iPhone SE two and later reported since the iPhone 9. It retains the 4.7-inch size that is on the iPhone 8 and preceding regular iPhone versions — maybe not the Plus ones, needless to say. Despite being the most inexpensive model, the new iPhone is powered with the Apple A13 Bionic chip, which is powering the iPhone 11 series. The iPhone SE (2020) also runs iOS 13 out-of-the-box and comes with a Touch ID fingerprint sensor.

iPhone SE 2020 specifications, features
Apple has provided the 4.7-inch Retina HD LCD display on the iPhone SE 2020 that has 750×1334 pixels resolution. The screen panel features Haptic Touch service, found in newer iPhone models. Under the hood, there is the A13 Bionic chip that’s part of the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and the iPhone 11 Pro Max. The new iPhone also has one 12-megapixel camera detector (f/1.8 aperture) in the back along with a LED True Tone to flash with Slow Sync. For selfies and video chat, then there’s a 7-megapixel camera in the front, using an f/2.2 aperture.
The brand new iPhone also has the Touch ID button — instead of the Face ID service that requires a distinctive array of sensors.
Design-wise, the iPhone SE 2020 seems quite like the iPhone 8 which was launched as the successor to the iPhone 7 at September 2017. It steps 138.4×67.3×7.3mm and weighs 148 g.
