It looks like an iPhone 8 but with very much modern specs. Apple has announced the iPhone SE 2020, a compact low-cost phone starting at $399 for a 64 GB version.
The iPhone SE has larger bezels on the top and bottom sides of the device which features a 4.7-inch screen size and home touch button with Touch ID.
It is available for preorder this Friday, April 17th, and it will ship on April 24th. There will be a 128GB model offered for $449 and a 256GB model for $549. Like other iPhones, it will come with a free year of Apple TV Plus. It will come in black, white, and Product Red.
The reason why Apple called this device the most powerful in a popular design is because it comes in an iPhone 8 body while running Apple’s flagship processor called the A13 Bionic chip which is the same chip running on Apple’s flagship devices such as the iPhone 11 range.
iPhone SE supports wireless charging while its battery lasts the same amount of time as iPhone 8 which has over 13 hours of video playback.

The iPhone SE looks like a very good deal overall. It’s a $400 phone with what appears to be a strong camera and the very same processor that’s in Apple’s most expensive iPhones. As noted above, that means a phone purchased today should be getting software updates for many years to come.
