Same name, new model.

Apple has finally unveiled the new iPhone SE, the second-generation of its budget smartphone range, following the original in 2016.

The tech giant has elected to not give it a number or a buzz word like ‘Plus’ or ‘Pro’ to differentiate from the old one, so we’re just going to call it the SE 2020 for this article.

With that out of the way, let’s get into the details…

First of all, there’s a 4.7 inch Retina HD display, the A13 chip that the iPhone 11 range uses. Camera-wise there’s a 12-megapixel one on the back, and a 7-megapixel one on the front.

You can choose either 64GB, 128GB, or 256GB of storage, and the colour options are black, white and (PRODUCT)RED, which is their initiative to donate money to AIDS charities.

Prices start at £419 to buy the phone outright, although there of course a range of options for spreading the cost via monthly payments.

Apple’s Trade In scheme allows to you bring that price down to £279, or £10.99 a month, depending on what you device you already have.

Pre-orders for the iPhone SE 2020 will begin this Friday (April 17) at 1pm.

Obviously, Apple Stores are closed at the moment due to the currently global situation, so you won’t be able to pop in and have a play around with the phone before buying.
