Apple has updated its small, entry-level smartphone for 2022.
The new iPhone SE—announced during the company’s Peek Performance event—now comes with Apple’s A15 Bionic chip, 5G, better battery life, improved durability, and a new camera system.
This third-generation SE retains its small form factor and 4.7-inch screen. And yes, the chunky bezels are still there, as well as the the familiar Home button with Touch ID.
It comes with a 4.7-inch Retina HD display (1334 x 750 @ 326ppi);, Qi wireless charging support, and IP67 splash-, water-, and dust-resistance. It features an aerospace-grade aluminum and glass design. According to Apple, the tough glass on the front and back is the same as the one on the back of the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13.
The iPhone SE sticks with just one rear camera: a 12-megapixel f/1.8 aperture wide shooter that comes with some software-based photography improvements thanks to the new chip. This includes Smart HDR 4, Photographic Styles, Deep Fusion, and Portrait mode.
There’s also a 7MP f/2.2 aperture front camera with features such as portrait mode with advanced bokeh and depth control, portrait lighting with six effects, Deep Fusion, Smart HDR 4 for photos, Photographic Styles, and 1080p HD video shooting capability.
The iPhone SE 2022 is available in three colors: PRODUCT(RED), Starlight, and Moonlight. Here are the prices:
- 64GB: P28,990
- 128GB: P34,999
- 256GB: P37,999
