iPhone SE has been finally launched by Apple. It is essentially an iPhone 6s stuffed into a 5s case. Released after much anticipation, mobile enthusiast can’t seem to stop talking about it. Apple introduced the 4-inch iPhone SE, its first 4-inch iPhone since 2013, on March 21, 2016. Described as the “most powerful 4-inch iPhone ever,” regarded as affordable, highly capable device that’s available in a small package.iPhone SE

The iPhone SE is powered by an A9 chip with integrated M9 motion coprocessor, also used in the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, powers the iPhone SE, enabling always-on “Hey Siri” functionality. Its efficiency results in longer battery life with up to 14 hours of talk time and 13 hours of Internet use.

It is also equipped with a rear-facing 12-megapixel camera which has faster focusing, better noise reduction, improved tone mapping, and a new image signal processor for sharper, more detailed photos. The iPhone SE can shoot 4K video and capture 63-megapixel panoramas, and it can take Live Photos, but there is no 3D Touch support.

The FaceTime HD camera has not been upgraded, continuing to support 1.2-megapixel photos and 720p video recording. Retina Flash, which lights up the iPhone’s display for illumination, is included.

Other iPhone SE features include faster LTE with support for up to 19 bands at speeds of up to 150MB/s, plus it has fast 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.2 support. A first-generation Touch ID sensor and an NFC chip are available in the iPhone SE, enabling Apple Pay functionality.
