Apple just announced the iPhone SE with a 4″ display. The phone features a body almost identical to the iPhone 5 and 5s, but features the latest gen Apple A9 chip with a dual-core 1.85 GHz Twister processor and PowerVR GT7600 six-core graphics.
The 4″ display rocks a resolution 1136×640 pixels, resulting in a pixel density of 326 ppi. The iPhone SE also features Retina Flash, which momentarily makes the screen three times brighter when you take a selfie. The 3D feature from the larger current gen iPhones hasn’t made its way to the SE though.
The Apple iPhone SE features the same 12MP iSight camera as its iPhone 6s and 6s Plus siblings. It comes complete with 4K video recording. The front-facing camera is 1.2MP and is complemented with the Retina Flash feature.
iPhone SE’s design is virtually the same as the iPhone 5s’, but the Home button has gotten smarter with Touch ID and Apple Pay support. As far as measurements go, they’re also the same as the iPhone 5s with a weight of 113 grams.
The best part about the iPhone SE is its price – it starts at $399 for 16GB of storage, while $499 nets you the 64GB version. The smartphone will be available for free with a two-year contract in the US as well as in $17 monthly installments.
Pre-orders commence on March 24, with sales starting on March 31. The phone will be available in four color versions, including the trendy Rose Gold.
