"Apple iPhone SE 2020 has been launched, which will replace both the original iPhone SE and iPhone 8 launched in 2016 and 2017."
Apple has launched the iPhone SE, a new low-cost iPhone in 2020. The new iPhone will help address the premium mid-range smartphone segment, something Apple has been eyeing for quite some time. The announcement of the new iPhone comes at a time when the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic has disrupted the global supply chain. Interestingly, Apple has made the new iPhone SE official just a day after OnePlus launched its OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro smartphones.
“The first iPhone SE was a hit with many customers who loved its unique combination of small size, high-end performance and affordable price; the new second-generation iPhone SE builds on that great idea and improves on it in every way — including our best-ever single-camera system for great photos and videos — while still being very affordable,” Phil Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing, said in a statement.
The new iPhone SE succeeds the original iPhone SE, which was launched in 2016. That phone had a 4-inch screen and had a design similar to the iPhone 5.

The iPhone SE looks a lot like the iPhone 8. The handset has a 4.7-inch Retina screen with True Tone and comes with 64GB or 128GB or 256GB of internal storage. The affordable iPhone is powered by an A13 chipset, the same chip currently powers the iPhone 11, and the old Home button, known as Touch ID, instead of Face ID.

A single rear camera, the iPhone SE (2020) offers a Portrait mode, using computational photography enabled by the Neural Engine on the Apple A13 Bionic SoC. For selfies and video chat, there is a 7-megapixel camera at the front, with an f/2.2 aperture.
The iPhone SE (2020) include 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11ax, Wi-Fi calling, NFC, Bluetooth v5.0, GPS/ A-GPS, and a Lightning port. There is no 3.5mm headphone jack.
