Apple iPhone SE: Overviews, Price & Release date

Listen to this article

First impressions
The iPhone 5s was a really nice-looking phone, and although the newer iPhone 6 and 6s are thinner and sleeker, the iPhone SE still looks like a classic model.

While Apple’s previous attempt at a “budget” phone – the iPhone 5c – felt cheap and plasticky, the iPhone SE’s aluminium body and chamfered edges leave you in no doubt that it’s a quality device.6S features in a 5S body.

Despite the smaller size, Apple didn’t skimp on features in the SE. The iPhone SE delivers nearly every feature of the 6S. And everything listed in italics is a notable upgrade for anyone coming from an iPhone 5S or earlier:


4-inch 1136×640 (326 ppi) display
16GB or 64GB storage
A9 processor
12 megapixel rear camera, 4K video recording, Live Photos
1.2 megapixel front-facing camera, Retina Flash for dim lighting
Touch ID
Apple Pay
M9 motion coprocessor for fitness tracking
Always-on Siri
802.11ac Wi-Fi, LTE, Voice over LTE, Wi-Fi calling
Colors: space gray, silver, gold, rose gold

Overall, this seems like a really good option for anyone who prefers a smaller smartphone, but doesn’t want to compromise on features – and while it’s not exactly cheap, it is great value for money, official starting price at 150BHD – 170BHD & will be releasing all over in  GCC region on 4th April 2016.
