Apple Unveils iPhone SE 2 for $399

Apple unveiled a new iPhone SE with a 4.7-inch display as a follow-up to the original iPhone SE, released four years ago. The new iPhone SE is essentially an iPhone 11 stuffed into the revamped body of an iPhone 8. Just like the original SE, the new phone will start at $399 — $50 cheaper than the discontinued iPhone 8, which, until this week, was the least expensive iPhone you could buy new.

The new iPhone SE has many of the features found in the more expensive iPhone 11 and 11 Pro, like an A13 Bionic processor, Qi wireless charging, haptic touch and a True Tone display. The new phone has a single rear 12-megapixel camera with a 28-millimeter f/1.8 lens with Portrait Mode, Smart HDR and optical image stabilization. It’s similar to the main camera found on the iPhone 11 and 11 Pro.

The new SE will come in three colors (black, white and Product Red) and three storage options (64GB for $399, 128GB for $449 and 256GB for $549). Proceeds from the Product Red version will support coronavirus relief efforts.

The phone has two main audiences: budget-conscious buyers who aren’t interested in paying $799 for an iPhone 11 and those who prefer compact phones. You can pre-order here via Amazon: (We could earn a fraction of this sale).
