Take a First Look at the New Apple iPhone SE, Starting at $399 USD
Available in three colorways.
Apple has revealed a first look at its re-launched entry level smartphone, the iPhone SE. Originally introduced in 2016 and discontinued in 2018, the iPhone SE is favored by many for its smaller design and no-frills capabilities.
Product shots of the 2020 iPhone SE reveal three colorways — black, white and red. Visually, the model’s 4.7 inch retina HD display and re-introduced home button, removed from the iPhone X and above, resemble the iPhone 8. However, the new gadget has been upgraded with an A13 bionic chip, the fastest processor for any smartphone. Starting at $399 USD, it’s also Apple’s most affordable iPhone.
Detailed in a video posted to Apple’s Instagram page, the phone also features an updated, single-lens camera with Portrait Mode capabilities and multiple Portrait Lighting settings. Users can customize their photos using High Key Mono (a high-contrast, black-and-white mode), Stage Light (portrait-style lighting that blacks out the background) and Stage Light Mono (a black-and-white version of Stage Light).
The Apple iPhone SE releases for pre-order on April 17 at Apple’s website. The phone will be available in 64GB, 128GB and 256GB models, which retail for $399, $499 and $549 USD respectively.
