After a pretty long wait, Apple is finally launching its second iPhone SE. Although it’s far from being a high-end phone, it can get the job done for users in many ways. It actually has some specs capable of running a lot of highly demanding games, although not everybody is a fan of gaming on mobile devices.
But plenty of grumpy people are saying that iPhone SE 2020 is just a clone for iPhone 8 considering that the two devices have the same camera on the rear, same battery, almost identic design, and so on. In this article, we’ll carefully explain why they’re wrong. Yes, there are similarities between iPhone 8 and iPhone SE 2020, but clearly the two iPhones are not the same.
A13 Bionic chipset
The presence of the A13 Bionic chipset on iPhone SE 2020 is the most important argument for why the gadget is NOT an iPhone 8 clone. This processor is the most powerful one made by Apple, and it’s even present on the 2019 flagship of the Cupertino-based company: iPhone 11.
iPhone 8 has a different and weaker processor: the A11 Bionic chipset.
The primary camera for iPhone SE 2 is better than anyone expected. The main snapper can provide the same performance as the rear camera sensor present on the iPhone 11 Pro flagship. Furthermore, the video recording of iPhone SE 2020 is also impressive since it features 4K support. There’s also a 7 MP camera mounted in the front of the device. We have to admit that the camera is not too powerful, but still it’s capable enough for making video calls using WhatsApp. The cameras will be taking photos and making videos that will be exhibited on the Retina IPS LCD display. This screen measures 4.7 inches and has a resolution of 750 x 1334 pixels.
iPhone SE 2020 has several impressive specs, and it’s a great option if you want a decent and affordable phone.
