As you may know, Apple officially unveiled its new € 499 budget iPhone yesterday, the iPhone SE 2020! A device that for many months was known as the iPhone 9, which honestly would be a bit strange.
Well, the idea of Apple is very simple … Take the design of the iPhone 8 that was so successful, put the SoC A13 Bionic that gives life to the latest range of devices, adding a more powerful camera, and then ask for 499 €. Easy isn't it?
iPhone SE (2020) only has 3GB of RAM and 1821mAh battery
However, as usual, the company chose not to reveal the amount of RAM and battery capacity of the device … Most likely, because these are numbers that usually disappoint consumers, especially when they are placed side by side with the Android world. Well, the problem is that apparently they will disappoint even more in this new model, since the RAM is for 3GB, and the battery is exactly the same as we could find on the iPhone 8.
After all, according to mobile network providers, the new iPhone hits the market with 3GB of RAM, a slight increase over the 2GB of the iPhone 8, but less than the 4GB of the iPhone 11 and 11 Pro. That said, this amount of memory may even be enough … But a battery of 1821 mAh in 2020 may not make much sense anymore, but we have to wait to see what the real performance of the device is, in real and non-synthetic use cases.
However, we have other specifications coming directly from 2017, such as the IPS LCD screen, and the Touch ID, which are exactly the same as those on the iPhone 8.
As we said yesterday, the iPhone SE 2020 arrived in Portugal for 499 €! A price that will probably be successful, but in my opinion it falls far short of what a budget device should really be. After all, with this money, you can buy a RealMe X2 Pro with a SoC SD855 +, 12GB of RAM, 256GB UFS 3.1 and 90Hz OLED screen. However, the specs have never been able to draw the true fans of the Apple world, so I doubt that such a thing will happen now.
