Apple announces new low-cost iPhone SE, priced from $399
Apple has officially announced its long-rumored 2020 iPhone SE, featuring a 4.7-inch LCD display, Touch ID home button, A13 Bionic chip, and up to 256GB of storage, priced from $399.
Available in black, white and (PRODUCT)RED, the second-generation iPhone SE features an aerospace-grade aluminum and glass design with an all-black front, similar to that of the iPhone 8.
The release of the low-cost 2020 iPhone SE, which Apple unveiled within a press release today, sees Apple discontinue the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, which were previously the most affordable iPhone models in Apple’s line.
The first iPhone SE was a hit with many customers who loved its unique combination of small size, high-end performance and affordable price; the new second-generation iPhone SE builds on that great idea and improves on it in every way — including our best-ever single-camera system for great photos and videos — while still being very affordable. iPhone SE features the industry-leading performance of A13 Bionic that enables great battery life, takes stunning Portrait mode and Smart HDR photos, shoots amazing videos with stereo audio, is great for games and super fast web surfing, and is built with the same industry-leading security features our customers expect. We can’t wait to get iPhone SE into customers’ hands, said Senior Vice President of Worldwide Marketing at Apple, Phil Schiller.
Unlike the iPhone 8 line it replaces, the iPhone SE is available in one size only, without any mentioning of a larger “iPhone SE Plus” as previously expected.
Apple’s second-generation iPhone SE is available in 64GB, 128GB and 256GB models, with pre-orders beginning at 5 a.m. PDT on Friday, April 17, ahead of an official release from Apple, Apple Authorized Resellers and select carriers on Friday, April 24, in the US and more than 40 other countries and regions.
