Apple Officially Announces 4-inch iPhone SE

It’s a smaller screen size with similar performance to the iPhone 6S

While Apple has been making their newer iPhone 6s smartphones for a while now, they’re still selling a lot of iPhone 5s. It’s not hard to see why – there’s still big demand for small iPhones, since they’re easier to handle and hold than the behemoths being released today.

That’s why Apple has released the iPhone SE – essentially a scaled-down version of the iPhone 6s, possessing many of the same hardware specs in a smaller 4-inch smartphone. While the phone looks identical to the iPhone 5S, the iPhone SE packs newer hardware – essentially the guts of the iPhone 6S. That means the company’s powerful A9 and M9 silicon, as well as a 12-megapixel camera, Live Photo capability as well as 4K video.

Of course, there will be a difference in the look of the phone, right? Well, the differences are minimal – the iPhone SE has edges that are matte rather than polished, in a hope to make it less scratch prone.

The new iPhone SE starts at a lower price of $399 for the 16GB version and $499 for the 64GB model.
