Apple has just introduced its rebooted iPhone SE, a $400 USD second-generation model with a revamped iPhone 8-like design. The new iPhone SE is equipped with a 4.7-inch Retina HD display, thick bezels, and a home button with Touch ID. However, it utilizes Apple’s new A13 Bionic processor — the same found in the company’s latest iPhone 11 and 11 Pro.
Like the original iPhone SE, the handheld features a single camera lens on the front and a 12-megapixel wide-angle lens on the back. With the power of an A13 Bionic processor, the rear camera has Smart HDR capabilities for detailed shots, while the front utilizes Portrait Mode and Portrait Lighting effects. The second-generation “Special Edition” iPhone can also shoot 4K video at 60fps, with slo-mo, time-lapse, and cinematic video stabilization in both front and rear lenses.
The SE is made of glass and aluminum and can also utilize Qi wireless charge, unlike its original counterpart. Also unlike the first edition, the handheld has a 5.45-inch frame, which is more than an inch larger than its predecessor.
The new iPhone SE is available to preorder Friday April 17 in black, white, and Product(RED) for $399 USD, with deliveries expected to begin April 24.
