Apple launches the most affordable iPhone SE 2020

Apple launches the most affordable iPhone

Typically it’s the Android phones that take the title of “flagship killer” to deliver high-end features with reasonable price tags, but this year, in an unexpected leap, Apple is trying to snatch that crown. The iPhone SE 2020 is an upgrade of iPhone 8, but for just $400 with high-end cameras and a flagship chipset. A price point hasn’t hit Apple for such a long time.

Develop and Display

Apple launches the most affordable iPhone - 2

The SE 2020 iPhone looks no different from its original iPhone 8. It has a 4.7-inch IPS LCD “Retina” with thick classic bezels at the bottom and a Touch ID activated physical home button. The monitor has True Sound, Dolby Vision, and HDR10 playback support.

At the bottom, above an LED light, it has a single camera at the top left. There’s also IP67 water and dust resistance level, which means the phone can withstand 30 minutes deep in water.

Internals and Storage

The device is powered by the new SoC flagship from Apple, the Bionic A13, which can also be found on the iPhone 11 series. This chipset is leaps and bounds ahead of Android flagship processors and also scores far higher in benchmarks. That alone makes the price tag justifiable.

For the most part, other internals is the same as the iPhone 8. The phone provides three different versions of the NVMe variety: 64 GB, 128 GB, and 256 GB. Apple hasn’t disclosed the amount of RAM in the unit, as normal.


The main 12MP camera can capture smart HDR images, thanks to the chipset’s raw power. Despite having only one camera lens on the phone, Apple has fitted the camera with “monocular depth-sensing” that uses machine learning to add a depth effect to the images, suitable for portrait shots.

Due to its “cinematic” video stabilization, this camera can capture stable 4 K videos at 60 FPS. The front-facing camera is a 7MP shooter which also has portrait mode support.

Battery and Pricing

As usual, Apple hasn’t disclosed the battery power of the phone yet, and the box contains only a measly 5W charger. The phone does have support for 18W fast charging, however, which can charge the battery in 30 minutes from 0 to 50 percent.

The 64 GB version of the iPhone SE 2020 costs $400, the 128 GB edition costs $450 and the 256 GB option goes $550. When it goes on sale on April 24, the phone will be available in Red, Black, and White color options.
