Apple iPhone SE: 4.7″ display and A13 Bionic chip for $399

Today Apple presented the second generation iPhone SE, a new and powerful iPhone with 4.7″ Retina HD display and the advanced security of the Touch ID. iPhone SE has a compact design reinvented inside and out and is the most affordable iPhone.

The new iPhone SE has the A13 Bionic chip developed by Apple, the fastest ever on a smartphone and even up to the most demanding tasks, and the best single camera system ever seen on an iPhone, which offers the advantages of photography computational like Portrait mode; it is also designed not to fear bad weather thanks to its water and dust resistance. iPhone SE is available in black, white and (PRODUCT) RED, and from Friday 17 April it will be possible to pre-order it starting from $399.

“The first iPhone SE was a great success among customers, who appreciated its combination of compact design, high-level performance and affordable price; the new second-generation iPhone SE takes the same idea and further improves it, for example by adding our best single-camera system to make beautiful photos and videos, while maintaining a very attractive price,” explains Phil Schiller, Senior Vice President of Worldwide Apple marketing. “Thanks to the extraordinary power of the A13 Bionic chip, iPhone SE has great autonomy, takes beautiful close-ups in Portrait mode and photos with Smart HDR, records spectacular videos with stereo sound and is perfect for video games and for surfing the web at full speed. And of course it comes standard with the advanced security features that our users expect. We can’t wait for customers to touch it.”

4.7″ design and display for iPhone SE

iPhone SE has an aerospace aluminum design and durable glass with a completely black front side, and is available in black, white and (PRODUCT) RED. The finish of the rear glass with the Apple logo in the center is the result of a seven-layer coloring process that allows you to obtain rich and deep colors, precise shades and optimal opacity, and the tone-on-tone aluminum profile perfectly matches the glass. It resists splashes and dust, with an IP67 grade water resistance rating, up to 1 meter deep for 30 minutes.

The 4.7″ Retina HD display with True Tone adjusts the white balance based on ambient light to give the screen a more natural, paper-like brightness. It has a wide color range that returns incredibly faithful colors and is compatible with Dolby Vision and HDR10 content. iPhone SE uses touch with haptic feedback to give access to quick actions, like animating a Live Photo, previewing a message, rearranging apps and much more, and to open context menus.

iPhone SE also incorporates the Home button, with a sapphire crystal design to make it resistant and protect the sensor, and a steel ring to detect the user’s fingerprint for the Touch ID. Using Touch ID is a convenient, secure and easy way to unlock the iPhone without typing the code, enter password using the iCloud Keychain, access apps, authorize purchases on the App Store and pay with Apple Pay.

A13 Bionic, the fastest chip on the iPhone SE

The A13 Bionic chip, introduced with iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro, is the fastest ever seen on a smartphone and offers unprecedented performance for everything users do with iPhone SE. Ideal for photography, video games and augmented reality experiences, the A13 Bionic chip makes everything smoother.

Apple created the A13 Bionic chip focusing on machine learning: it has an 8-core Neural Engine capable of processing five thousand billion operations per second, two accelerators for machine learning on the CPU and a new ML controller, to balance performance and efficiency. Together, the A13 Bionic chip and iOS 13 pave the way for new smart apps that use machine learning and Core ML.

Built to be efficient, the A13 Bionic chip also allows great autonomy in the iPhone SE. iPhone SE supports wireless charging with Qi certified chargers and is also compatible with fast charging, which allows you to charge the battery up to 50% in just 30 minutes. Gigabit-class 6 and LTE Wi-Fi connections offer amazing download speeds. And dual SIM with eSIM allows you to have two phone numbers on one device, for example when traveling abroad or need a dedicated number for work.

New photo experience enabled by the A13 Bionic chip with a 12MP wide angle and aperture with f / 1.8 aperture, iPhone SE has the best single camera system ever seen on an iPhone. The ISP processor and the Neural Engine of the A13 Bionic chip allow you to take advantage of the advantages of computational photography, such as Portrait mode, all six effects Portrait lighting and Depth control. And thanks to machine learning and monocular depth estimation, beautiful portraits can also be taken with the front camera. iPhone SE offers the new generation Smart HDR, which recognizes people in the frame and changes the lighting to return more natural images, with incredible details of light and shadow.

Users can shoot even more immersive videos thanks to stereo audio recording and cinema-quality video stabilization available on both cameras. The rear camera records 4K videos up to 60 fps, and the extended dynamic range of up to 30 fps produces more detailed shots in the illuminated parts. Customers can also use QuickTake videos on both cameras, to record movies without leaving Photo mode. Thanks to the advanced functions of the Camera and Photo apps in iOS 13, native editing is even more complete and intuitive, and includes powerful tools previously available only for photo editing.

The Apple world

With iPhone SE, customers have access to the solid ecosystem of Apple products, services and accessories. Users can choose from nearly two million apps on the App Store (including the best third-party apps and AR experiences), keep up to date with Apple News, watch original series, films and documentaries created by the best film and TV talents on Apple TV +, stream more than 60 million songs with Apple Music, make secure and confidential purchases with Apple Pay, and even store photos, documents and contacts on iCloud to be able to access them from all your Apple devices. In addition, iPhone SE has a Lightning connector and is therefore compatible with over 25,000 Lightning accessories, including speakers, audio devices, docks, photography or CarPlay accessories and much more.

To protect privacy and give customers full control over their data, iPhone SE comes standard with industry-leading security features expected from an Apple device.

For example, Touch ID and Secure Enclave protect fingerprint data, Safari’s intelligent antitracking system prevents advertisers from following the user from one website to another, and Foto uses machine learning to organize the shots on the device.

iOS 13 on iPhone SE allows perfect integration between software and hardware, which is unmatched on other smartphones. iOS 13 offers an extraordinary look with the Dark Mode, a more reserved way to login in apps and websites with the “Log in with Apple” option, and a brand new experience in Maps with faster and more precise navigation and beautiful views look around.
