Apple iPhone SE 2020: Specifications and Features
As the name of the smartphone itself suggests, the iPhone SE 2020 is a direct successor to the iPhone SE that was launched nearly three years ago. The phone sports a 4.7-inch Retina HD display with 1334x750-pixel resolution and 326 PPI. It's an IPS LCD True Tone display with 625 nits of peak brightness levels. And yes, there are think bezels on the top and bottom of the front, but again, Apple wanted to launch a compact smartphone with high-end hardware in 2020. There's a TouchID sensor sitting below the display.
The iPhone SE 2020 is powered by Apple's A13 Bionic chip which we have seen on the company's 2019 flagship phones like the iPhone 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max. The phone also offers IP67 splash, water and dust resistance certification.
Moving onto the cameras, the iPhone SE 2020 has a single 12MP shooter on the rear which has an f/1.8 aperture and offers digital zoom up to 5X. Apple says the phone will offer Portrait mode with advanced bokeh and depth control features along with Portrait Lighting with six effects. The sensor also has Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS) support and it is capable of shooting 4K videos at 24 fps, 30 fps and 60 fps. On the front, there's a 7MP shooter with f/2.2 aperture.
Connectivity options on the iPhone SE 2020 include 4G VoLTE, Gigabit-LTE with 2x2 MIMO, Wi-Fi 6 with 2x2 MIMO, Bluetooth 5.0 and NCF. There's a lightning port on the bottom which means Apple is not yet ready to move to USB Type-C port. As always, Apple did not reveal the battery capacity on the iPhone SE 2020 but says the phone will last about the same as iPhone 8. It is fast charge capable, but users will have to purchase an 18W charger separately. Lastly, the phone runs iOS 13 out of the box. The phone also has wireless charging support, meaning it also features a glass back.
