iPhone SE Hardware Specs, Price, and Release Date

Apple has finally announced successor of its 4-inch iPhone lineup, dubbed iPhone SE during its ‘Let us loop you in’ media event on Monday. Dropping the digit from its tradition naming scheme, Apple has unveiled iPhone SE with the same dimensions as the iPhone 5s, but with huge improvements to the internal hardware specifications.

The iPhone SE is not meant to revolutionize the smartphone industry, it is Apple’s effort to make iPhone more accessible to the people with medium or small hands or those who do not like the larger smartphone sizes.

Despite having the same looks of an iPhone 5S, the iPhone SE packs hardware specs identical to the current latest iPhone 6s. However, some compromises have been made in some areas to keep the cost of the device down and make it an affordable offering from the fruit company. Let’s drive deep into the internal hardware specs of the iPhone SE.
