The previous 1st generation iPhone SE was released back in 2016. The main idea behind the new iPhone SE 2 is to provide the most powerful chip at the most affordable price. iPhone SE 2 is power-packed with all the latest features. It has the same chip as iPhone 11 Pro which is A13 Bionic.

iPhone SE 2 features – explained
Now let’s discuss some of the features of the iPhone SE 2 (2020). Know what makes this phone unique and outstanding!
Unlike the latest iPhone 11 series, iPhone SE 2 only has 1 rear camera which is 12MP – Wide having f/1.8 aperture. There is no doubt in the fact that iPhone’s camera takes stunning pictures like professional DSLR cameras.
The camera has a digital zoom up to 5X. It also has an optical image stabilization feature which allows you to take shake free stablized-videos. You can record 4K videos up to 60fps (frames per second). For slow-motion videos, it supports 120fps and 240fps in 1080p video quality.
Talking about the front camera, iPhone SE 2 has a 7MP camera with f/2.2 aperture. It has portrait mode with advanced bokeh and Depth Control. The camera app has 6 effects (Natural, Studio, Contour, Stage, Stage Mono, and High-Key Mono) which will add more colors to your photos and make them crisper.
As we have already mentioned, iPhone SE 2 has an A13 Bionic chip. This is the same chip which is used in iPhone 11 Pro. A13 Bionic is the fastest chip Apple has made till now. You will get a very smooth experience in launching apps and playing high-end games like PubG and Asphalt.
iPhone SE 2 has a 4.7-inch screen size (measured diagonally). It doesn’t have a notch display but you get the home button with a fingerprint sensor. The screen has HD Retina and True Tone display having a 1334×750-pixel resolution at 326 ppi. What we don’t like about this iPhone SE 2 is that there is a very huge bezel (space between the screen and phone’s frame) at the top of the screen that makes it look little old-fashioned.
Like other models, iPhone SE 2 (2020) also has three variants – 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB. For normal users, 64GB is quite enough but if you do heavy-usage on your phones (like installing so many apps, playing heavy games, and keeping thousands of photos and videos), then we will recommend you to go with 128GB or 256GB variant.
iPhone SE 2020 battery lasts about the same as iPhone 8. You get up to 13 hours of video playback and up to 40 hours of audio playback. You can do fast-charging (up to 50% in 30 minutes) with 18W adapter or higher. iPhone SE 2 also supports wireless charging with Qi chargers.
Final words about iPhone SE 2 (2020)
Apple never disappoints. Overall, iPhone SE 2 is very good in terms of features but it is little overpriced especially for Indian people. Apart from that, it would be better if it had little bigger screen size. We have already revealed the price and launch date of iPhone SE 2 in India. Now it is up to you if you want to buy this phone or not. Let us know in the comments below what do you think about this new Apple product.
