The iPhone SE is back!

In a virtual unveiling, Apple announced a new iPhone SE which will be available for pre-order starting April 17.

Joining a line-up of much bigger – and more expensive – iPhones, the iPhone SE will pack a punch despite its relatively smaller size compared to today’s cell phones. Plus, with a retail price of $399, it makes an excellent iPhone for consumers on a budget.

The second-generation iPhone SE will feature a 4.7-inch Retina HD display, paired with Touch ID for industry-leading security and will be powered by the powerful Apple-designed A13 chip.

“The first iPhone SE was a hit with many customers who loved its unique combination of small size, high-end performance and affordable price; the new second-generation iPhone SE builds on that great idea and improves on it in every way — including our best-ever single-camera system for great photos and videos — while still being very affordable,” Phil Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing said in a statement. “iPhone SE features the industry-leading performance of A13 Bionic that enables great battery life, takes stunning Portrait mode and Smart HDR photos, shoots amazing videos with stereo audio, is great for games and super fast web surfing, and is built with the same industry-leading security features our customers expect. We can’t wait to get iPhone SE into customers’ hands.”

According to Apple the “iPhone SE features the best single-camera system ever in an iPhone with a 12-megapixel f/1.8 aperture Wide camera, and uses the image signal processor and Neural Engine of A13 Bionic to unlock even more benefits of computational photography, including Portrait mode, all six Portrait Lighting effects and Depth Control.5 Using machine learning and monocular depth estimation, iPhone SE also takes stunning Portraits with the front camera. Next-generation Smart HDR comes to iPhone SE, intelligently re-lighting recognized subjects in a frame for more natural-looking images with stunning highlight and shadow details.”

The iPhone SE will be available in three colors: black, white and (PRODUCT)RED.
