The sequel to Apple’s budget-friendly iPhone is here. iPhone SE 2020 edition (or iPhone SE 2, as many of us will probably call it) was announced by Tim Cook and co. today, proving once again that “the show must go on”. Frankly, online shopping is what is keeping some of us sane, although for many of you who are thinking of saving up in this current economical climate, buying a new phone might seem a luxury.
However, compared to a flagship, the iPhone SE 2 is worth a second look, judging on price alone. As rumored, the base model comes at $399, for a 64GB storage configuration. But what do you get besides room to download apps and save media?
iPhone SE 2 is a mix of new and old. Luckily for us, the new means that it runs on the latest Apple processor, the A13 Bionic chip and a very good camera for a single module lens. There’s a 12-megapixel f/1.8 aperture camera, with Portrait mode on board and Smart HDR. On the video side, you’ll be able to enjoy recording at 4K up to 60fps.
The look and feel of this iPhone will remind you of iPhone 8. There’s a 4.7-inch display with an aluminum frame and glass back, coming in black, white and (PRODUCT)RED. The home button is there as well, with Touch ID in tow.
The storage can be upgraded for a price. Want 128GB? You’ll have to pay $449 and for 256GB, $549.
Preorders start this Friday, with iPhone SE 2 being available online for purchase starting with April 24th.
What do you think – is iPhone SE 2 appealing enough to get out your card or will you take a pass?
