Apple unveils iPhone SE having iPhone 6S features in a compact size

ByinAnnouncements | March 21, 2016

Apple decided to shrink its new iPhone back to a 4-inch size
For a long time Apple was criticized for not keeping up with the latest trends. When the whole world kept increasing smartphones’ screen size, the Cupertino company was stuck with 4-inch displays. Finally, a couple of years ago something changed and the first iPhone with a screen size close to today’s standards was launched. It seems, however, that Apple hasn’t given up on smaller displays. The company just unveiled the iPhone SE offering iPhone 6S features but in a compact size.

Apple decided to shrink its new iPhone back to a 4-inch size. The insides, however, are on par with the company’s latest flagship.

Apple unveils iPhone SE
Announced decidedly off schedule, the iPhone SE is a pretty intriguing device. The design brings to mind older models, namely the iPhone 5S, though it will be available in more color options – Silver, Gold, Space Gray and Rose Gold. The internals, however, are far more powerful that the 5S. In fact, according to Apple’s Greg Joswiak, some of the components are even better than what the iPhone 6S has inside.

What exactly, the iPhone SE has to offer? For starters, it sports a 4-inch screen which is much easier to handle than a 5.5-inch display, not to mention the fact that a phone of such size fits in any pocket. Powering the iPhone SE is a 64-bit A9 processor with M9 motion co-processor which means that is supports “Always On” Siri functionality, and it’s battery is capable of providing up to 13 hours of Wi-Fi browsing or up to 14 hours of talk time.

The phone also packs a 12-megapixel iSight camera with True Tone flash, 63-megapixel panoramas, Live Photos and 4K video, as well as front-facing Retina HD camera with focus flash. Moreover, the new iPhone offers faster connectivity, Touch ID and NFC with support for Apple Pay.

The device will be available in two storage options, with 16GB and 64GB of memory. The former will cost $399, while the latter will set you back $499. If paying full price is too hard for your budget, Apple will also sell the iPhone SE through an installment plan for $17 per month. Pre-orders will open this Thursday, March 24, and the phone will start shipping on March 31. In addition to the US, the new iPhone will initially go on sale also in Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, New Zealand, Puerto Rico, Singapore, and the United Kingdom and will arrive to over 100 countries by the end of May.
