Apple iPhone SE 2 Design
One the hardware side, the new iPhone SE 2 (2020) has a glass front and back design with an Aluminum frame. The visual is mostly like the old iPhone 8. The device is also IP67 water and dust resistant. The most notable design element is the retention of the home button/fingerprint sensor, which is removed in the latest iPhone models. There is, however, no 35mm headphone jack, and you have to make do with the lightning connector.
Looking at the software design, the new iPhone SE uses iOS 13 for more fluid user experience. The operating system comes with all essential apps and AI apps. Of course, that includes the Siri – your handsfree mobile assistant.
Should I Upgrade My iPhone SE
Apple devices are known for their lightning-fast performance, and the case is no different for the 2020 iPhone SE. Why should I Upgrade my iPhone SE? Apple has been generous enough to put its latest top of the line A13 Bionic Chip into a lower-end model. This chip gives a boost to performance but also enables the new device to support the latest AI apps plus the things that haven’t even invented yet. The third-generation Neural Engine has been seamlessly combined with Apple’s Hexa-Core CPU making it perform close to the iPhone 11 Pro.
The device has a 3GB RAM with 64/128/256 GB storage options. Which is plenty considering the top of the line 11 Pro supports only four gigs of the RAM. Apple’s iOS 13 has an excellent RAM management system, which lets the iPhone perform better than most higher RAM smartphones.
According to Apple, iPhone SE’s battery can stream videos for up to 8 hours and can last 40+ hours on standby. The device supports fast charge with 18W or higher adapter sold separately.
iPhone SE Camera Megapixels
With Apple’s software and hardware combined, the iPhones’ camera performance is, no doubt, the best in class. The iPhone SE camera megapixel is 12 MP wide main camera with 5x digital zoom, optical image stabilization, and true-tone slow-sync flash. The main camera also has different portrait lighting modes from contour to stage lightning and everything. The main camera is also able of recording 4K videos at 60 fps.
