iPhone SE 2020 was officially announced by Apple on Wednesday. The new low-cost Apple iPhone made its debut on Wednesday after much anticipation. It was rumored that it will be called iPhone 9 or iPhone SE 2. But Apple decided to stick with the original name iPhone SE with a 2nd-generation tag. The iPhone SE 2020 has a similar design that of iPhone 8, but the new iPhone comes with the newer Apple A13 Bionic chip. The A13 chip powers the top-notch iPhone 11 series. iPhone SE 2020 has a Touch ID fingerprint button and a Retina HD display. All this makes the iPhone SE 2 an attractive entry-level iPhone.

iPhone SE and iPhone XR camera comparison

There is not a lot of difference in the camera of the iPhone SE 2020 and the iPhone XR as they have a 12-megapixel single rear camera f/1.8 aperture. The phones come with portrait mode along with the depth sensors.

The front of the phones feature a 7-megapixel camera f/2.2 with TrueDepth sensor and selfie supports the potrait mode. So the buyers don’t have to ponder much about the camera before picking any of the phones.

Due to the A13 Bionic processor, the iPhone SE clicks better photos. The newer processor has more speed and it may help Apple do better photo processing in the iPhone SE.

Fina Verdict

iPhone XR is going to be a better purchase, because of its screen. If I were asked to pick a phone between the two, I would have chosen iPhone XR because of the battery life and the screen size. When people are looking for phones with bigger displays, I won’t be going back to the designs that were in 2014 .

The iPhone SE 2020, has its own charm. The smaller screen could be a big pull for some. Touch ID is another part that many of us might like. It has a lighter and more compact design is another part that some consumers will prefer.
