What Everyone Must Know About The new iPhone SE 2020

smartphonesshop.com.au - They say the classics never die, and there’s nothing that proves that better today than the launch of the new iPhone SE 2020. From its design reminiscent of the iPhone 8 to its features such as wireless charging, the iPhone SE 2020 is the perfect mix of yesterday and today. It’s not all old school as it still doesn’t have a mechanical home button or a headphone jack, but by now we assume you’re using Airpods right? With the iPhone SE 2020, the simplicity and convenience that an iPhone offers no longer need to cost an arm and a leg. 

Of course, before we go any further, we know what you’re going to ask about, the specs! Without further ado, here’s the official list of iPhone SE 2020 specs. For a mid-range phone we’re quite impressed by Apple’s offering:

You’re probably wondering, why purchase a mid-range iPhone? What’s so special about the iPhone SE 2020? For those of you who haven’t upgraded their beloved smartphone and are concerned about price, alongside quality then the iPhone SE 2020 is the smartphone for you. You know by now that whatever Apple touches usually turns to gold but if you need a little more convincing, read on.


The iPhone Experience Without The iPhone Price

In our decade of selling phones, we’ve realised that while Samsung has usually been the one to offer mid-range versions of their flagship range such as the Galaxy A5 and J5, it is a market that Apple has not tapped into as much. While we may have had the older version of the iPhone SE not too long ago, iPhones have never been known for their cheap price, and with good reason, since they’re damn good smartphones (you know that already we guarantee). Now as per the title, you can have that slick and sexy iPhone experience without the flagship price with the iPhone SE 2020, priced respectively from $749 AU and $399 US. If your iPhone 8 still has a special place in your heart, you’ll be happy to know the iPhone SE 2020 is compatible with iPhone 8 accessories due to its identical dimensions. With its fantastic features that echo Apple’s newest iPhone models and its modest price, the iPhone SE 2020 demands to be the centre of your life and we can certainly say it deserves that.

Capture The Moment Without Breaking The Bank

The digital era demands a good camera, and to capture all your favourite moments you shouldn't need to batter your poor wallet. Whether you enjoy posting videos of yourself dancing to Tik Tok or video call friends and family, you need a powerful camera that won’t break the bank, especially during this tough time. Here at Smart Phones, we know a good smartphone camera when we see one, and we cannot deny that Apple knows how to make a vibrant camera. The iPhone SE 2020 cameras with 12 Megapixel resolution, portrait lighting combined with wide colour capture will make selfies and all your other exploits in life look fabulous plus utterly stunning. Add HDR alongside 4K video and you’ll get pictures that will bring out the professional photographer in you. Whether it’s the quarantine pillow challenge or pictures of that tasty meal you’ve learnt to cook during the lockdown, we’re starting to think the humble digital camera has some stiff competition!


New School, Yet So Old School

For a mid-range smartphone, if there’s one thing we love about the iPhone SE 2020 is its mix of the design of older iPhones with the features of newer models such as the iPhone 11 Pro. Its design reminiscent of the iPhone 8 reminiscent with a 4.7-inch Retina HD display will remind you of those good old days when you could go to the shops and find a pack of toilet rolls. The iPhone SE 2020 processor being the same as the one in the iPhone 11 Pro is also a great balance between power and reliability, being a fantastic addition in a mid-range version of a high-end smartphone. Either way, it is much more than you would expect from a non-flagship release and it only makes us love Apple even more. The addition of a Touch ID sensor is quite the surprise and combined with the camera capabilities, show Apple’s commitment to making its newest effort feel just like its most powerful models.

The Processor For All Your Needs

For any phone, the power of its processor can make or break it. You’re probably wondering how Apple’s mid-range effort goes up against its tougher siblings. We were quite impressed with Apple’s last mid-range range offering, the iPhone SE, and at the time it stood sufficiently well next to the iPhone 6s and iPhone 7. The good news is that the new iPhone SE 2020 stands strongly alongside the more powerful iPhone models and manages to be a mid-range phone that feels like a flagship version. Its powerful A13 bionic chip processor, which happens to be the same processor in the iPhone 11 Pro will help you get that high score in whatever app you’ve become addicted to, browse your favourite websites and multitask without worrying about lag. It is, after all, the fastest chip in a smartphone today. Apple doesn’t mess around when it comes to specs since it knows well enough that simplicity requires power.


The iPhone SE 2020 looks to be the best mid-range smartphone yet. Its features ripped straight from the iPhone 11 Pro, classic iPhone 8 design, and 12 Megapixel camera with 4K video rewrite the rules on the non-flagship smartphone release. Apple never ceases to impress, and we can see that very clearly with the iPhone SE 2020.
