After joining the big phone mania with its iPhone 6, 6 Plus, 6s, and 6s Plus, Apple goes back to producing phones that fit comfortably in our pockets. In its iPhone event on Monday, the tech giant introduced the new iPhone SE, a 4-inch smartphone that bears the same A9 chip featured in the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus.

The iPhone SE’s compact aluminum design comes with matte-chamfered edges and a color-matched stainless steel Apple logo. Make no mistake, however, as this new iPhone delivers top-tier specs that can stand head-to-head with Apple’s iPhone 6 iterations. Aside from the powerful 64-bit A9 chip, the iPhone SE also features Touch ID with Apple Pay and a 12-megapixel iSight camera with Live Photos and 4K video.

Ending the speculation and theories about how powerful the iPhone SE really is, here are the full specs of Apple’s new smartphone:


  • Body: Bead blasted aluminum finish with matte-chamfered edges
  • Dispay: 4-inch 1136 x 640 326ppi Retina display
  • OS: iOS 9
  • CPU: 64-bit A9 chip with M9 motion co-processor
  • Memory: 16/64GB
  • Cameras: 12MP iSight rear camera with Live Photos, 4k video, time-lapse, retina flash, and True Tone lighting; 1.2MP with Retina flash
  • Connectivity: Touch ID, Apple Pay, LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.2, NFC, nanoSIM
  • Dimensions: 123.8 x 58.6 x 7.6mm, 113g



Available in four metallic finishes—space gray, silver, gold, and rose gold—the iPhone SE comes with a starting price of $399.

The iPhone SE will be available for pre-order in Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, New Zealand, Puerto Rico, Singapore, U.K., U.S. Virgin Islands, and U.S. beginning March 24, and it will hit the stores on March 31. The rest of the world will have to wait until early April to get their hands on the new iPhone SE.
