The second-generation Apple iPhone SE is finally official amidst the pandemic. The SE series is aimed at making iPhones affordable and smaller. As that might be, the new iPhone SE 2020 would not be cheap in India with the starting price of INR. 42,500.

While the company announced pre-order dates in the US, beginning from April 17, there’s no availability date for India at the moment. The device is available in 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB variants.

The new version of the iPhone SE is smaller in design keeping with its original motive, but this one features a rounded design that is similar to the current iPhones. The new smartphone features a 4.7-inch Retina display. Apple’s Touch ID fingerprint sensor is embedded under the screen. The new design makes the iPhone SE look a lot like the iPhone 8.

The iPhone SE runs on the newer Apple A13 Bionic chipset which is the same one that the iPhone 11 and 11 Pro Max features.

The newest iPhone also gets an updated camera on its back. Unlike the recent iPhones, this one features a single camera on its back with a 12 MP sensor. The camera retains the Smart HDR feature for better photography, and Apple has added a new “monocular depth estimation” feature that offers the Portrait Mode on this phone.

This particular feature requires multiple cameras to get the depth in a photo, but since the SE features a single camera, it makes use of machine learning to figure out the depth and take images in the bokeh effect. Portrait lighting effects are also being used in this iPhone.

It also supports the wireless and fast charging option but Apple won’t include a fast charger in the box. Apple would only give the 5W version of the charger, but the users can get the 18W fast charger from the market. The device will be offered in 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB variants.

The lockdown has slowed down sales and manufacturing have almost halted. The fact that amidst the lockdown Apple decided to launch the new iPhone could also mean a drop in the sales for Apple.

The pre-order in the U.S. starts on April 17. Dates for the Indian market has not been announced yet.
