The iPhone SE is fast and affordable, with a 4-inch screen (but no 3D Touch)

by • March 20, 2016 • No Comments

Apple hasn’t forgotten the 4-inch smartphone. At a media event in Cupertino, Apple’s Greg Joswiak only announced the brand new iPhone SE, replacing the iPhone 5s in Apple’s line-up and providing a smaller in dimensions, cheaper alternative to the two top-end iPhones may already on sale.

  • The new phone comes in four colors
  • The 12 MP camera is capable of 4K video recording
  • All the latest iOS goodies are included, such as Apple Pay
  • Apple says GPU and CPU performance is on a par with the latest iPhones announced last ...

The easiest way to ponder of the iPhone SE is approximately an iPhone 6s inside the body of an iPhone 5s. You get many of the latest iPhone goodies, that include Apple Pay and Live Photos, but in a device that is definitely simpler to hold in one hand and won’t put as big a dent in your budget. It’s cheaper than the flagship phones launched last year, but aside of the create the differences are minor.

One of the few iPhone 6s/6s Plus showcases not to be included in the iPhone SE is 3D Touch. The novel prescertain-sensitive display innovation has been heavily pushed by Apple since September, but this practically guarantees that the tech can stay an optional extra in iOS app development for years to come, all but dashing any hopes that it can be a universal showcase inside the future few years (it is in addition missing of the newest iPads).

Otherwise there is quite little compromise in terms of specs: you get the same A9 processor and M9 motion coprocessor discovered in the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, and (unsurprisingly) Apple says the CPU and GPU performance is precisely the same. If you are in the market for a new Apple phone and so you now have five handsets to select of: the iPhones SE, iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, and i6s and 6s Plus.

The camera is top-of-the-line too, a 12 MP iSight camera capable of 4K video recording. Similar to the iPhones Apple launched last September, the device offers “Retina Flash” (where the display acts as a camera flash) to manufacture certain your selfies are well lit. Apple says you can get 13 hours of Wi-Fi web browsing out of the iPhone SE’s battery, that is a higher estimate than the iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s Plus (those estimates are 11 and 12 hours, respectively).

Apple is calling the SE “the many powerful 4-inch iPhone at any time created” (of course it is, as it is two and a half years newer than the last one), but it is in addition the cheapest iPhone in Apple’s new line-up. The 16 GB version can retail for US$399 with the 32 GB version on the market for $499. Pre-orders begin on Thursday March 24 with the phone on sale on March 31 in Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, New Zealand, Puerto Rico, Singapore, the United Kingdom and the United States.

With so much power in the many low-priced iPhone yet, it looks like an obvious upgrade for buyers who don’t want or require a larger screen dimensions and can live with the slightly dated iPhone 5s-style looks and lack of 3D Touch.
