iPhone SE is a 4-inch phone unveiled by Apple on the 21st of March 2016. It's the first 4-inch produced by Apple since the launch of iPhone 5S in 2013.
The target group is users that prefer a compact and non-bulky phone with top features. Apple wants to ensure that existing iPhone 5S users don't switch to another brand when upgrading their phones. Hence, an upgraded 4-inch phone makes a lot of sense from this perspective.
The look of iPhone SE is almost identical to that of iPhone 5S in terms of form and look-and-feel. However, the four colours are the same as for the iPhone 6s.
The specs are impressive. The A9 processor powering the iPhone SE is 70% faster than the older A8 processor. The graphics processor (GPU) is 90% faster. In fact, Apple claims that graphics performance has been boosted three times compared to iPhone 5S.
The camera matches the performance of iPhone 6s and 6s plus. It's capable of recording in 4K at a 30 fps rate. The resolution of the camera is 12 MP. The Retina flash enables the front camera to take bright selfie shots.
The battery life has been vastly improved over iPhone 5S. Communication is also faster with network supported up til 433 Mbps. Wifi calling is also supported.
The iPhone SE is available with two storage options: 16GB and 64GB.
A newer model iPhone XR2 will be released in August 2019.
