Apple had created a surprise by announcing its iPhone SE 2020: an ultra compact smartphone, as powerful as the iPhone 11. You want to get this smartphone at the best price? Follow the guide to discover the best deals of the moment.
Without a conference or real communication around the subject, the new iPhone SE arrived like a flower on the Apple store on April 15, 2020. It marks a return to its roots by borrowing the compact design of the late iPhone 8 – unfortunately removed from the catalog from the manufacturer – by coupling it to the high power of the iPhone 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max.
Where to buy it?
The 2020 iPhone SE comes in three models (64/128/256 GB) and three colors (black / white / red). The prices follow each other respectively at 489, 539 then 659 euros.
Note that it is 30 euros cheaper on the RED by SFR store.
As with all of its other products, Apple is offering a one-year Apple TV + subscription with the purchase of a 2020 iPhone SE.
All about the iPhone SE 2020
The iPhone SE 2020 has enough to arouse curiosity for this low price. It begins by embedding the A13 Bionic chip that we found until now only on the flagships of the Cupertino company. This configuration is quite simply one of the most powerful on the market, it promises to run all 3D games at full speed, while guaranteeing its user a follow-up of updates over the (very) long term.
It then has the particularity of offering an incredibly compact format in 2021 with its small 4.7-inch IPS LCD screen, unfortunately displaying a small HD definition of only 1334 x 750 pixels. However, this new iPhone SE is still compatible with Apple’s famous TrueTone display. This design choice, however, involves large borders at the top and bottom, where the latter welcomes the return of Touch ID for fingerprint unlocking.
As for the photo, the iPhone SE probably does not promise great versatility with its 12-megapixel mono sensor. However, the possibilities are still numerous with a portrait or Smart HDR mode, as well as videos in 4K at 30 fps. In addition, the quality seems to be clearly there, just like this facility specific to Apple to take a good shot in any case.
The only downside seems to be the autonomy, estimated more or less equivalent to the iPhone 8. This is not necessarily reassuring, but we can still take comfort with its compatibility with fast charging up to 18 W, and even wireless charging. The iPhone SE also continues with surprises by offering Bluetooth 5.0 and Wi-Fi 6.
