Apple iPhone SE (2020) product details

The Apple iPhone SE (2020) is Apple's affordable iPhone with a relatively compact and familiar design. It's the first time Apple has recycled an iPhone name and the choice for the iPhone SE is also a bit weird because the two don't have much in common. What exactly do we mean by that and if this iPhone SE 2nd generation is worthwhile buying is something we are going to find out here.

Dated appearance, modern interior

Released in 2020, this iPhone has a very compact 4.7-inch screen for today's standards. The iPhone SE 2020 itself isn't even that compact, because there's still a lot of room above and below the screen. This doesn't look very modern, but it will feel very familiar to long-lasting iPhone fans. Moreover, Apple makes good use of the space because under the screen we find an old acquaintance. The Touch ID fingerprint scanner. The new and more hip Face ID on some other iPhones where your face is recognized is missing. The front and back are made of glass with an aluminum rim. The SE 2020 is waterproof up to 1 meter for a duration of 30 minutes. The glass back also means you can charge it wirelessly.

Good camera results

Despite its familiar and proven appearance, the iPhone SE (2020) does have the necessary improvements inside. For example, it uses the most recent processor: the A13 Bionic. The same processing power can be found in the much more expensive models. This cheaper SE (2020) has the same raw computing power and that is something you will notice. Gaming is effortless and apps will never feel slow. This goes for the most advanced ones like those with Augmented Reality (AR). The available processing power is also used by the camera. Despite the single sensor, it still sees depth so you can shoot portrait photos with it. This portrait mode allows you to take studio-worthy photos with out-of-focus background or studio exposure. The combination of a good camera with a competitive price makes the iPhone SE (2020) a device that is difficult to ignore.

Main Apple iPhone SE (2020) specifications

  • Compact 4.7-inch Retina HD screen
  • Single 12 megapixel camera with portrait mode and depth control
  • Powerful A13 Bionic processor for lightning-fast performance
  • Fast on-the-go mobile browsing (4G)
  • Dual SIM capabilities thanks to built-in eSIM (not available everywhere)
  • Waterproof glass design

It doesn't get more compact than this

Maybe you think after all this: this sounds a lot like the iPhone 8. That's right! As far as we're concerned, the iPhone SE (2020) is more the successor of the iPhone 8 than the iPhone SE. Wouldn't it then be better to buy the (even) cheaper iPhone 8? Apple is ahead of us because the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus were immediately retired after the introduction of this iPhone SE (2020). Finding a new one will therefore be difficult, but refurbished is of course possible. And the introduction of this iPhone is the nail in the coffin of something else: the small 4 inch iPhone. Some hoped that Apple would make 1 more and had their hopes on this iPhone SE (2020). Unfortunately, the smallest Apple has in its lineup is 4.7 inches. Get used to it is our advice.

Apple announces renewed yet familiar iPhone SE (2020)

Phone news ·

As expected, Apple today announced a new iPhone. The renewed iPhone SE has just been placed on its website. It is an iPhone with a familiar appearance including large bezels above the display but still with some much-needed innovations on the inside.

Rumors about a remake of the iPhone SE had been going on for some time; a semi-cheap iPhone with familiar looks and fingerprint scanner. The iPhone SE 2020 is more or less the successor to the iPhone 8 from 2017 but with a more powerful Apple A13 Bionic processor.

The iPhone SE (2020) features a relative compact screen of 4.7 inches. Those who had hoped for smaller are in no luck; you will now really have to switch to something bigger. The Retina HD display supports HDR10 and Dolby Vision, so the display has some accurate color reproduction. Unlocking goes old-fashioned with your fingerprint. Face ID is missing. Both front and back are made of glass, so you can charge the SE 2020 wirelessly. Wired fast charging is also possible.

Powerful A13 Bionic

Inside, the Apple iPhone SE (2020) is quite modern. This is mainly due to the A13 Bionic processor. That is the same chip as in the iPhone 11, 11 Pro and even the 11 Pro Max. So gaming will be just as smooth. All that raw power is also used for the camera. The device has a single camera with 12 megapixel sensor and f/1.8 lens. Via machine learning, it still does portrait mode and depth recognition.

Apple puts the iPhone SE 2020 on sale for $399 and is available in Black, White and PRODUCT(RED). Pre-ordering starts Friday April 17th, after which first shipments will be delivered a week later on April 24th. Until then, you can think about whether you want 64, 128 or 256 GB of storage.

9to5Mac: announcement Apple iPhone SE 2020 coming soon

Rumors ·

According to the usually well-informed people of 9to5Mac, Apple may soon announce a successor to the iPhone SE this month. Besides a possible release date we also have some specs and a possible name.

Apple would settle for the name iPhone SE (2020). For iPhones it is not common to put the year in it's name. For iPads thats a whole different game. Earlier mentioned names like the iPhone 9 and iPhone SE2 didn't make the cut according to 9to5Mac.

Future iPhone SE (2020)

The iPhone SE (2020) looks to be the real successor to the iPhone 8. This is mainly due to the lack of a notch and a screen size of just 4.7 inches. There is still a large group of fans of 'small' iPhones who do not like the post era iPhone X models. Despite the small screen size, Apple does opt for modern components such as an Apple A13 Bionic processor. This is the same processor as in the iPhone 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max.

iPhone SE (2020) versions

Also good news for those who want a small iPhone with lots of storage. According to the same source, in addition to a 64 and 128GB model, Apple also comes with a 256GB version of the iPhone SE 2020. Future color options are Silver (white), Space Gray (black) and Product (RED). Earlier rumors spoke of an entry-level price of $399, converted into €369 without VAT. An announcement may follow as early as Wednesday April 15th.

Renders show Apple iPhone SE2 aka iPhone 9, announcement upcoming?

Rumors ·

We see them passing by regularly; the renders of @onleaks. The Frenchman has sources at Chinese telephone factories, which means that he regularly receives factory drawings of as yet unannounced phones. This time possible from the iPhone SE 2.

That's remarkable, of course, because Apple is very secretive about new models. Yet even Apple can't keep future models a secret, not even from @onleaks. He previously leaked the iPhone XR and 11 Pro. This time it's the turn of what looks like a new little iPhone.

Apple iPhone 9

We don't have a definitive name for you yet but both iPhone SE 2 and iPhone 9 are good contenders. Other suggestions can be found in the comments below. In terms of design, we have to go back to 2017 with its thick screen edges and round home button. The as yet unknown device is thus reminiscent of the iPhone 8 although the source that Apple applies a back cover of Frosted Glass this time. The same kind of backside we find on the iPhone 11.

Compact but not SE-small

Specifications are always difficult to derive from pictures, but thanks to the dimensions we can guess a lot. A 4.7 inch screen for example, single camera and Touch ID. A real successor to the extremely compact SE is it not, more a successor to the iPhone 8. It's hard to say whether that says anything about his future price. Though you can be sure it won't be low at Apple.
