Apple just announced the new iPhone SE, the company’s latest smaller iPhone, as expected. The successor to the older iPhone SE that was introduced back in 2020 comes with a 4.7-inch HD Retain screen with Haptic Touch and still retains the Touch ID fingerprint sensor below the display. However, this replaces the A13 Bionic with the A15 Bionic and also adds 5G support.
It has a Ceramic Shield protection that was introduced in the iPhone 12, has a glass and aluminium design, features a single 12MP camera with 4k video recording with features such as Smart HDR 4, Photographic Styles, Deep Fusion, and Portrait mode from the iPhone 13, and a 7MP front camera with 1080p HD video recording. The phone also has IP67 ratings for dust and water resistance.
