Apple’s iPhone SE Packs An A13 Bionic Chip Into A Compact, Affordable Package

It’s been four years since Apple first introduced its beloved SE smartphone, and with the tech industry’s most prominent phone-makers releasing their updated smart devices, the community has been anticipating a new iteration from the monolithic brand. Now, the Cupertino-based outfit has revealed an updated version of the iPhone SE for 2020.

Calling upon its best-selling 4.7-inch IPS LCD Retina display, Apple’s new SE draws a distinct parallel to the iPhone 8 that it’s been scheduled to replace. At its rear, a 12-megapixel camera lens provides crystal-clear photos when paired with the phone’s A13 Bionic chip — the very same centerpiece that can be found in the company’s recent iPhone 11 and 11 Pro. But what makes the SE truly interesting is its technical improvements, including new “monocular depth-sensing” for the onboard camera that calls upon machine learning to recognize faces, distance, and depth. This, paired with cinematic stabilization for the device’s 4K/60fps filming capabilities, means that buyers will be able to utilize one of the most powerful handheld devices on the market for a fraction of the price of higher-end smartphones. Head to Apple’s website to learn more about this year’s iteration of the $399 iPhone SE.
