The iPhone SE, promising to be the most powerful 4-inch phone, was unveiled today by Apple in a special event held in the US. Featuring a powerful A9 Chip, Advanced 12-Megapixel iSight Camera, Apple Pay, and more. The iPhone SE isn’t just the most powerful 4-inch iPhone but also the most affordable in the iPhone range, starting at A$679.
The iPhone SE is based on the compact aluminium design we all loved with the iPhone 5s, however has received some design improvements. These include matte-chamfered edges, a colour-matched stainless steel Apple Logo, matching the four colours the iPhone SE is available in: Silver, Space Grey, Gold and Rose Gold.
iPhone SE is the most powerful phone with a 4-inch display, featuring a beloved design that’s been reinvented from the inside out to offer exceptional performance in a compact design.
The performance of the iPhone SE brings two times faster CPU and three times faster graphics (GPU) performance over the iPhone 5s, with Apple also including the same 64-bit A9 chips that are in the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus models. This means longer battery life, fast speeds, faster Wi-Fi, and allows the new camera to shoot Live Photos as well as 4K Video.
