The iPhone SE version 32/128 GB renews the range in March 2017 and replaces the 16/64 GB versions that came out in March 2016. A move that increases the price of entry of the iPhone SE to 489 euros. There is still, as such, the new iPhone in the cheapest catalog of the brand. To increase to 128 GB, it will pay 599 euros.
The iPhone SE is a smartphone that wants to be a response to the demand expressed by all lovers of small smartphones who wish to have a modern and powerful platform.
Outside, an iPhone 5S
Exterior appearance, the iPhone SE is based on a known architecture, the iPhone 5 and 5S. The front, a slab of 4 inches whose resolution reaches 326 pixels per inch (definition of 1136 x 640 pixels). The slab is IPS and is protected by an oleophobic film (to avoid fingerprints). The screen is not 3D Touch compatible. The outline of the phone is straight, consisting of aluminum and fragmented into several sections by separators “anti-antenna-gate”. The back is partly metallic with both ends reinforced glass.
This is not the only item inherited from the iPhone 5S. Below the screen is a “First Generation Touch ID” button. The smartphone is 7.6 mm thick and weighs 113 grams. The webcam is that of the old model of Apple, namely a Facetime sensor of 1.2 megapixels. It is accompanied by a lens opening at f / 2.4 and Retina flash (by the screen).
Inside, an iPhone 6S
Inside, this is the platform of the iPhone 6S that we find. Starting with the A9 chipset, a dual-core with custom-designed cores called Twister and an eighth-generation PowerVR GPU. The A9 chipset is accompanied by an M9 coprocessor for the management of motion sensors (gyroscope and accelerometer) and 2 GB of RAM.
The smartphone also has the connectivity of the iPhone 6S: LTE category 6, Bluetooth 4.2, WiFi MiMo ac, GS, VoLTE and NFC (Apple Pay compatible). The photosensor is also borrowed from the last flagship of the Cupertino brand: a 12-megapixel iSight sensor where each pixel is 1.22 micron. The autofocus integrated with the sensor is phase detection (Focus Pixels technology). It is accompanied by a 5-element lens opening at f / 2.2 (protected by synthetic sapphire), a true tone LED flash and a digital stabilizer. It films in 4K at 30 frames per second and in 720p up to 240 frames per second.
The iPhone SE is available in four colors: Silver, Sidereal Gray, Gold, Rose Gold. The iPhone SE (32 GB) is available for 489 euros at launch. The 128 GB version is available at 599 euros.
