The Apple iPhone SE features a 4-inch display with a curved 2.5D glass and a resolution of 1,136 x 640 pixels. The phone is powered by an Apple A9 processor, aided by an M9 motion processor, just like the iPhone 6s. The device gets Touch ID fingerprint sensor with NFC, so it can be used for Apple Pay. It comes in 16GB and 64GB internal memory variants.
The iPhone SE sports a 12-megapixel iSight camera Focus Pixels, True Tone flash 4K video recording, and a 1.2MP selfie shooter with Retina Flash. The device also gets the live photos feature, which records a few seconds of videos before and after capturing a photo. In addition to NFC, the phone offers VoLTE, 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.2 connectivity options. Software-wise, the phone runs iOS 9.3 out of the box, and comes with always-on Siri integration.
The iPhone SE misses out on the 3D Touch functionality, which is staying exclusive to the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6S for now. The Apple iPhone SE will be available in Apple’s full range of colors, including grey, silver, gold and rose gold. The phone will take the iPhone 5s’ slot at the bottom of Apple’s phone lineup. This is higher when compared to US price of $399.
Now Redington India has announced that it start selling the iPhone SE across 3000 retail outlets in the country, beginning April 8th, Friday. Online retailers and operators are also expected to carry the iPhone SE. It will be available for pre-order starting from March 29th, next Tuesday. This is probably the fastest launch of an iPhone in India, just a week after roll out in the US.
