Remember the buzz around the iPhone 8 when it launched first, well this reminds you of the nostalgia. The new rendition from Apple, iPhone SE is a modern version of it. Today Apple just launched the iPhone SE, online, amid the Coronavirus lockdown. The phone comes at a pretty affordable cost of around $399.
From the ground up, it has the same chassis configuration as of the iPhone 8. But this means this flagship comes with a small screen of 4.7-inch. It includes large bezels at the top and bottom. The home button sports a Touch ID. Basically, this is a design that has been at Apple’s core since iPhone 6. But this makes the iPhone SE the 5th generation holder of the same design. The company kind of owns a copyright for the design now.
