Apple earlier today unveiled its new low budget smartphone and this is the first one four years. The new iPhone SE comes just as Apple is readying a high-end 5G phones later this year.

iPhone SE features the best single-camera system ever in an iPhone with a 12-megapixel f/1.8 aperture Wide camera, and uses the image signal processor and Neural Engine of A13 Bionic to unlock even more benefits of computational photography, including Portrait mode, all six Portrait Lighting effects and Depth Control. Using machine learning and monocular depth estimation, iPhone SE also takes stunning Portraits with the front camera. Next-generation Smart HDR comes to iPhone SE, intelligently re-lighting recognized subjects in a frame for more natural-looking images with stunning highlight and shadow details. With advanced Camera and Photo features in iOS 13, native editing is even more comprehensive and intuitive through powerful tools that were once available only for photo editing.
On the security side, the new iPhone SE comes with Touch ID fingerprint and facial recognition technology. iPhone SE likewise includes the Home Button that is designed with a sapphire crystal that Appel says is to protect the sensor while the steel ring is to detect the user’s fingerprint for the Touch ID. Utilizing Touch ID is a simple, private and secure option in contrast to entering a password to open iPhone, fill in passwords utilizing iCloud Keychain, sign in to applications, approve App Store buys, and make Apple Pay transactions.
The new model comes in dark, white or red with models running from 64GB to 256GB in storage capacities. While a considerable lot of the gadget’s particulars have been outperformed by more current technologies, the iPhone SE uses the same A13 processor as the most recent iPhones including the iPhone 11 series. Youn can pre-rder the new iPhone SE from authorized resellers and select carriers on Friday, April 24, in the US and more than 40 other countries and regions.
iPhone SE first launched in 2016 came in the 2013 iPhone 5S design and this is the second in the series. But it’s quite interesting that Apple launched a phone in the middle of the global Coronavirus pandemic but it’s a testament to what the Chinese government has been saying that it has started reopening the country at different levels. Apple’s main supplier Foxconn announced that it was reopening with stricter safety and hygiene measures in place.
