Apple's idea of low-cost doesn't quite match what most Indians are used to. A new 4.7-inch iPhone that looks like the iPhone 8 but has the internals of the iPhone 11.

Apple's recently announced iPhone SE 2020 will be available for purchase in India very soon. The iPhone is already listed on Flipkart with a  coming soon banner indicating that consumers will be able to purchase the device very soon. The launch of this new phone based on an old design, at (what Apple considers) the low starting price of Rs. 42,500, has set off a firestorm of tweets and posts, and opinions are quite split. While Apple hopes to tempt buyers who couldn't otherwise afford an iPhone, the price is still too high for many people to stomach, and the iPhone XR doesn't cost that much more. But ahead of the official release Apple has announced a partnership with HDFC Bank to offer a massive discount of Rs 3,600 to consumers interested to buy the iPhone SE 2020.



The handset runs iOS v13.0 operating system out of the box and will continue to get software-updates from Apple for the next four years. The phone is powered by powerful Hexa Core (2.65 GHz, Dual-core, Lightning + 1.8 GHz, Quad-core, Thunder) processor. It runs on the Apple A13 Bionic Chipset which provides video stabilization, depth effects, and portrait lighting. It weighs 148g and is just 7.3mm thick. It has 3 GB RAM and 64 GB internal storage base variant of Apple iPhone SE 2020 (iPhone SE 2) which is available in Black, Red, White colour. Apple's ecosystem of services, and various other features that match the current-gen iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro.?

The screen has a resolution of 750 x 1344 pixels and 327 PPI pixel density. It has an aspect ratio of 16:9 and a screen-to-body ratio of 65.23 %. For photography lovers, this iPhone has a single 12MP rear camera with f/1.8 aperture, dual-pixel PDAF, OIS, and dual-tone, dual-LED flash. The camera provides features like 4K video, time-lapse, and slow-mo video recording. The front camera is a 7 MP f/2.2 Primary Camera sensor that supports portrait mode and 1080p HD video recording at 30 fps. The phone offers a battery life like the previous iPhone model and supports 18W fast charging and wireless charging. Other features include water-resistance up to 1 meter, stereo playback, Dolby Vision, HDR 10, and Wi-Fi calling.
