iPhone SE 2020: at a glance
Here’s what the SE 2 has to offer:
The iPhone SE 2’s display clocks in at 4.7 inches. That’s the same as the iPhone 8, but much larger than the 4-inch display on the original SE.
Naturally, that’s quite a big jump. But it’s still be pretty pocketable compared with new, higher-end smartphones.
The screen is LCD rather than the OLED technology in the iPhone 11 range, which means it’s about on a par with the iPhone 8 for brightness and clarity.
By far the phone’s most impressive feature, the SE2 boasts Apple’s powerful A13 Bionic – the fastest chipset to appear in a smartphone. Thanks to this powerful chipset, the iPhone SE 2 supports a range of impressive feature, like Haptic Touch, which lets you perform a range of actions, quickly.
The iPhone SE2 contains just one camera, albeit the best single lens setup to appear on an iPhone to-date. It’s 12 megapixels.
So although you can’t take the same quality photos as you can on phones with multi-lens cameras, like one of the premium handsets, it’s an impressive snapper, none the less.
The iPhone SE’s battery lasts about the same time as the iPhone 8. It’s 1,821mAh and comes with 3GB of RAM.
You can pick up the SE 2 as part of three storage variants: 64GB, 128GB and 125GB.
