Apple hosted its first event of the year tonight. Apple at its spring event – Peak Performance – launched the much-awaited iPhone SE 2022 smartphone. The newly launched iPhone SE 2022 is the successor to the second generation iPhone SE model that was launched back in 2020. At the time, Apple had not changed the design language of its budget iPhone. Meaning? The iPhone SE 2020 looks like the original iPhone SE which looks like the iPhone 8 and was launched back in 2017. Two years later, some things have changed. The recently launched iPhone SE 2022 or iPhone SE 2022 features the same compact design that Apple first introduced with the first generation iPhone SE model. Inside, the company has made several significant changes to keep the capabilities of the new and may I add better iPhone models.
iPhone SE 2022 Price and Availability
The newly launched iPhone SE 2022 comes at a starting price of $429 (approximately Rs 33,025). It will be up for pre-order from this Friday, that is, March 18 and its sale will start from March 18. Coming to the colours, the newly launched iPhone SE 2022 comes in Black, White and Product (RED) color variants.
iPhone SE 2022 Specifications
Coming to the specifications, the iPhone SE 2022 sports the same 4.7-inch Retina LCD display that we saw in the 2020 model. It comes with a thick bezel and a home screen button at the bottom. This home screen button is also known as fingerprint sensor. If you’re wondering about the FaceID functionality, it’s missing from the SE model. It comes with a glass and aluminum chassis at the front and rear. It also has IP67 dust and water resistant coating.
Where the iPhone SE 2022 gets the update is in terms of the processor. The iPhone SE 2022 is powered by Apple’s A15 Bionic chipset. This is the same chipset that powers the company’s iPhone 13 series smartphones. The phone runs iOS 15. You also get 5G connectivity – an upgrade from the previous generation.
Coming to the camera, the iPhone SE 2022 comes with a single 12MP FaceTime camera and a single 12MP camera on the back. Apple does not disclose the battery capacity of its iPhone. It also gets a better battery than the previous generation model.
After Apple launched the iPhone SE 2022 with A15 Bionic, the 12MP rear camera first appeared on BGR India.
