Apple has just revealed their latest smartphone, the second-generation iPhone SE. What strikes us straight away is just how much Apple has upped the ante in combining power, style and affordability.
In a world where smartphones have been getting bigger and bigger, the new iPhone SE should prove a real hit with fans of portable, easy-to-hold phones.
iPhone SE features a 4.7-inch Retina HD display that showcases websites, photos, videos and games in incredible detail and clarity. True Tone lends a helping hand too – adjusting the display’s white balance to best suit the level of ambient light, giving you a more paper-like viewing experience that’s more comfortable on your eyes.
Dolby Vision and HDR10 are both supported, so you can unlock all that high-definition content available through streaming services such as Netflix, BT Sport and Apple TV+ (which you can also enjoy free for one year on your new iPhone SE*).
Touch ID is a welcome addition to the front of the iPhone SE via the familiar and much-loved Home button, which has been designed with sapphire crystal to make it more durable than ever. With Touch ID, using your iPhone SE is even more secure and convenient. A simple touch can unlock your phone, fill in passwords, log in to apps and buy items using Apple Pay. Everything just feels really quick and smooth.
And talking of speed, the compact iPhone SE now benefits from a powerhouse of a processor – the A13 Bionic chip. This is the same chip that you’ll find in the iPhone 11 Pro. Put simply, it’s the fastest chip you’ll find in a smartphone. It will make everything you do on iPhone SE feel silky smooth, from playing games to scrolling through magazine on Apple News+.
What’s more, the A13 Bionic chip helps to give you great battery life – and if you do need a top up, iPhone SE supports wireless fast charging, so you can boost battery up to 50% in just 30 minutes.
And perhaps the biggest highlight on the new iPhone SE is the camera. We’ve got used to seeing massive modules on the back of smartphones, sporting multiple lenses. iPhone SE strips things right back, with a stylish single camera lens.
But this no ordinary camera. It’s the best single-camera system ever on an iPhone, with a 12-megapixel f/1.8 aperture wide lens, which uses all iPhone SE’s and the A13 Bionic chip’s power to unlock some incredible photo features such as Portrait mode, Portrait Lighting and Depth Control. Next-generation Smart HDR is onboard too, re-lighting subjects to create spectacular highlights and stunning shadow details that make your photos look even more epic.
That rear camera doesn’t just stop at taking great photos, either. It’s capable of creating cinematic-quality videos too. Both the front and back cameras feature supreme video stabilisation, so shakiness doesn’t ruin the flow and feel of your creations. The rear camera supports 4K video recording at up to 60 frames-per-second, so your videos are detail-packed, super-smooth and look great on large-screen TVs. And QuickTake is a really useful feature that lets you quickly switch from photo mode to video mode without any fuss – so you won’t miss any great video opportunities.
iPhone SE is available in three colours: black, white and (PRODUCT) RED, and in three different memory sizes: 64GB, 128GB and 256GB.
