iPhone SE 2020 screen

Essentially, the iPhone SE is an upgraded iPhone 8. It retains a 4.7″ Retina HD display that pushes a 1334×750 pixels resolution. The screen also has TrueTone technology, however, 3D Touch is replaced with Haptic Touch. Like the iPhone 8, the SE also features the same glass and aluminium design.

Under the hood, it runs on an Apple A13 Bionic Chip and it appears to be mated to 3GB of RAM. In the camera department, it retains the same single 12MP camera with OIS and it can shoot 4K videos at 60fps. Meanwhile, the front gets a 7MP FaceTime HD camera and it supports portrait selfie with various portrait lighting effects.

The iPhone SE still retains a home button with Touch ID and the device is powered by the same 1,821mAh battery as the iPhone 8. It also supports 18W fast charging but you’ll need to purchase a USB-PD charging brick and a lightning to USB-C cable which is sold separately. Similar to the iPhone 8, it also gets IP67 rated dust and water resistance.
