Apple iPhone SE (2022) announced with Apple A15 chipset

Peter, 08 March 2022

iPhones have a reputation of being pricey – all except for one. The third-generation iPhone SE is here, two years after the 2nd gen arrived. It may look the basically same on the outside as the iPhone 6 design from 2014, but the internals are much improved.

Let’s start with the Apple A15 chipset, the same chipset as on the iPhone 13 series and the fastest smartphone chip around. Storage options have remained the same - 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB.

The screen still measures 4.7” in diagonal, though the hefty bezels above and below make this larger than an iPhone mini. Still, this generation gains the "toughest glass on a smartphone" (Ceramic Shield) for improved durability. Also, there is a Touch ID fingerprint reader below the screen, so you don’t have to worry about Face ID bugging out about masks.

The camera has been improved, though mostly on the computational photography side. The iPhone SE (2022) still has a single 12MP unit without goodies like sensor-shift image stabilization like the 13-series. The SE (2022) gets Smart HDR 4, Photographic Styles, and Deep Fusion.

It goes without saying that the new SE supports 5G. Apple is still selling iPhone 11 models, so it does have 4G offerings, but all current models are on 5G now. We should also note that the original SE from 2016 is running the latest iOS.

They need to get a new design for se. But that’s gonna cost them & users have to bear it. I would love to buy this phone any day if it had trimmed bezels & little more battery capacity. Why they don’t use their logo as fps? That’s gonna sa...

Sure... did i buy the S22 Ultra? No, will it buy it now? No, im planning to try Xiaomi as my next flagship when my Note20 Ultra gets old. If that's fanboyism for you. Then everyone is basically a fanboy, because they keep with a brand for a lo...

Samsung can sell any phone and you will buy it. You are the living proof of this fanboism.
