Apple has just announced its new smartphone, the iPhone SE (2020). Although it shares a name with the terminal it launched in 2016, the truth is that they have little to do with each other beyond trying to continue a physical exterior design that was no longer being used in the company’s latest terminals.
iPhone SE (2020) takes over from iPhone 8 in terms of appearance: borders, physical start button with Touch ID and 4.7″ Retina display, as well as a single 12 MP camera. However, important changes are on the inside with the integration of the Apple A13 Bionic processor with Neural Engine.
It is these specifications that, along with iOS 13, can make the iPhone SE (2020) an attractive terminal for users who do not need the latest available on the market, do not want to spend the money that an iPhone 11 costs and prefer relatively small screens, but are interested in having a powerful device that will last a few years.
