The release of iPhone SE 2020 (or iPhone 9) will most likely happen this month. It has been over four years since the release of the previous generation iPhone SE. However, this smartphone will probably attract many customers. Why? Let us look at the top 5 reasons why you may want to consider the iPhone 9/iPhone SE2 2020.
- Touch ID fingerprint recognition
Apple originally planned to use the more convenient Face ID facial recognition instead of Touch ID. Facts have proved that it is indeed more convenient to look at the unlock than the fingerprint … until the COVID-19 outbreak. Going out wearing a mask makes Face ID completely useless. Many iPhone users simply turn off Face ID and enter the password directly. However, the classic Touch ID does not have this trouble, the mask is not an issue and users can unlock this phone seamlessly.
- No notch
Although the iPhone design has different opinions, everyone’s idea on the notch seems to be the same. The iPhone SE 2020 uses the classic 4.7-inch notch-free screen design, although the screen ratio is not high and the bezel is quite thick.
- Small and light
In the current era where we have a preponderance of 200g smartphones all over the market, a 150g phone is “king” for many users. This smartphone not only weighs less, but it is also about 68mm wide? It actually continues the design of the iPhone 8 body. At present, models with similar size and weight on the market are almost extinct. The small and lightweight feature has also become a unique advantage of the iPhone SE 2020.
- Bionic A13 processor
iPhone SE 2020 will be replaced with the same A13 bionic processor as iPhone 11 Pro. Although it is not the latest A14, its Antutu’s ultra-500,000 running points still prove that A13 is the current top chip. Such top performance + small screen allows it to be worthy of the name “small steel cannon“. If you don’t mind the small screen, iPhone SE 2020 should be a small handheld device that many mobile game players will like.
In today’s smartphone market, pricing is key. The iPhone SE 2020 will cost $399. The Chinese version should cost about 3,000 yuan ($426). This price can be regarded as one of the cheapest iPhones in history.
Of course, a 2020 smartphone, let’s be clear that the iPhone SE 2020 also has many shortcomings. It does not support a high refresh rate, no 5G, outdated design, etc. However, this will be a good option for those seeking to use a new iPhone for a minimal fee.
