Apple’s most sought after event of the year typically happens in September where they launch of flagship iPhones, the latest one was the iPhone 11 series in 2019. But every once in a while, Apple spices things up by launching compact and more affordable iPhones to challenge the mid-range Android phones.
Just yesterday, Apple launched the iPhone SE equipped with a 4.7-inch Retina HD display, 7MP front and 12MP rear cameras, Touch ID, and a starting price tag of ₱26,490.
This is the powerful “successor” of the original iPhone SE, which was launched in 2016 but was discontinued two years later. Surprisingly, the new iPhone SE comes with the A13 Bionic chip, which is the same chip found in the iPhone 11 series.
The iPhone SE (2020) comes in three different colors — black, white, and the special red variants. The storage options are 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB.
