Apple iPhone SE 2020 - Everything We Know So Far

Apple finally released the successor of the highly-regarded iPhone SE, but this time it offers is not based on the iPhone 5 and 5S, but based on the design known from the iPhone 6, 6S, 7 and 8. This new iPhone comes under the name of Apple iPhone SE 2020 and it has a 4.7-inch screen, Touch ID and more unique components. It also has a relatively low price.

This will be the cheapest iPhone offered by Apple, and with the processor directly from the top models from last fall. This is the iPhone SE 2 gen. affordable for the Apple offer and as usual critically accepted by supporters of the competition.

Apple needed this product, and it will be necessary equipment for the coming years. Apple iPhone SE 2020 release date in Australia is 24th April 2020.

What's new, what's old in this unique Apple iPhone?

The new iPhone SE 2020 has everything that other modern models of the "11" series, apart from the new Ultra-Wideband chip, which is used to locate other iPhones in three-dimensional space. This layout is unused at the moment, so you don't lose much of it. In return, there is a new rear and front camera that support Portrait mode and 4K video recording. Battery life is comparable to the iPhone 8, so there is no tragedy, but neither is the revelation in this matter, the iPhone 11 will be a better choice.

Unfortunately, there was no Night Mode on the camera. The big difference, compared to modern models, is, of course, the screen with a beard and forehead, which means that the display does not fill the phone frame, it has no Face ID, but it has Touch ID. While I think Face ID is a better solution on a daily basis, unfortunately nowadays, if you often use it when wearing a face mask, Touch ID will work better.

New Processors

The new SoC should provide a significant jump in performance because it is a jump from Apple A8 or A9 to A13. Apple suggests that it will be at least up to 4x faster for operations on the processor and up to 10x quicker for graphic operations.

This may be even more visible to users who still have old batteries in their iPhones, so their performance is limited so that the phone does not reset without warning. Following the same formula as 2016, the current iPhone SE brings in an old body the most modern processor of today, which today is the A13 Bionic.

It is precisely the same as the iPhone 11. The new iPhone SE is powered by an Apple A13 Bionic processor with a third-generation Neural Engine system, precisely the same one found in the iPhone 11 and 11 Pro.

As Apple smartphone manufacturers said that, "The Apple iPhone SE 2020 is the fastest chip ever used on a smartphone."


The new iPhone SE 2020 is equipped with a 4.7-inch Retina HD screen, which is the same as on iPhone models 6 to 8.

Not counting the size and shape of the screen, all other parameters are identical to those in the Liquid Retina HD screen of the iPhone 11.

It is an LCD with IPS technology with a resolution of 1334 × 750 pixels (326 PPI).

The display supports a wide range of P3 colours, Haptic Touch (as a replacement for 3D Touch) and has True Tone technology. As in other iPhones, also in the new SE, the screen was covered with an oleophobic coating resistant to fingerprints.


Whoever thought that a future SE update would keep the same screen size (4 inches),found it wrong. The 2020 model has the same design as the old known iPhone 8 (4.7 inches),having as its unique differentials the frosted glass on the back and the apple logo slightly moved to the centre. Unlike the iPhone 8, there is no larger version Plus, at least not yet.

Fingerprint Sensor

The new SE, as previously reported, uses biometric user authentication to use the old and well-known Touch ID fingerprint scanner, which like the model 8 and more former is located in the Home button. No Face ID facial recognition system was used.


The only 12MP f / 1.8 rear camera that differs little from the iPhone 8 found but has benefited from a newer and more powerful processor, and the Smart HDR feature works much better.

Apple has also compensated for the lack of a second sensor for portrait mode with Monocular Depth-Sensing technology, which will detect people's faces and blur the background around them using artificial intelligence.

The camera's sensor also boasts exceptional cinematic image stabilization, making iPhone smartphones the most suitable for video. Filming is possible at a maximum quality of 4K 60 frames per second.

The front camera wasn't touched by innovation and remained 7MP but was equipped with digital portrait mode technology similar to that found on the lens at the back.

Other Features

A significant enhancement is also the fact that the new iPhone SE allows you to use the latest version of iOS which allows more advanced use of NFC, new camera functions and applications Photos, Dark Mode, access to new applications or those that require iOS 13, Apple Arcade, new Apple Maps, improved Siri, Memoji and Animoji, new emoji, Shortcuts embedded in the system, improved CarPlay and more.

Price and Availability

The first iPhone SE was released in March 2016, which was a hit and enjoyed great popularity among many users who loved its unique combination of small size, high-class performance and affordable price.

The new iPhone SE 2 is based on the same concept but is more powerful, including it has the best Apple single camera system in history to take great photos and videos and at the same time is very affordable.

As we have said that this will be the cheapest iPhone having the best specs offered by the Apple brand. Apple iPhone SE 2020 Price will be near to 800 AUD. The preorders of this Apple iPhone have been started if you are planning to buy this smartphone you can buy it from our website.
