iPhone SE is out. What’s good, what’s not.
The new iPhone SE is out, since it was introduced yesterday at the latest Apple event. Somehow, this announcement doesn’t seem to have the same weight as it used to. iPhone SE has a with 4-inch Retina display with a resolution of 1136×640 pixels and 326 ppi pixel density. The smartphone marks the company’s return to Steve Jobs’s vision on smartphones: as long as you call it a smartphone, its display should not be larger than 4-4.5 inch. That’s perfectly fine with me, but the customers are pretty found of thery 5+ inch display devices.
iPhone SE features an A9 chipset, dual-core Twister processor clocked at 1.85 GHz, and the M9 motion processor. If you are into games, you should know that it also features a PowerVR GT7600 (six-core graphics) GPU. According to Apple, the smartphone uses 4G LTE technology and is 50% faster than its predecesor, the iPhone 5s. TouchID and the NFC are also present.
iPhone SE features the same camera that’s present on 6S, a 12MP 1/3″ iSight camera capable of 4K video recording. It can also shoot slow motion videos at 240 frames per second. The internal memory is only 16 GB or 64GB, no SD card slot. It runs iOS 9.3.
This smartphone is a mix between iPhone 6S and 5S. It appeals to mid-range market, nostalgics and hardcore Apple fans. It is a step further into diversity and we can expect more variation of current Apple products in the future. If you’re into smaller smartphones, this device is definitely to be taken into consideration.
iPhone SE will be available starting with March 31 at a price of $399 for the 16GB version and $499 for the 64GB version. Preorders start on 24 March.
