Specifications of the new iPhone Se phone

Apple just revealed its new iPhone SE for 2022, as the third generation of SE updates the 2020 model by adding support for sub-6 GHz 5G, along with support for the A15 Bionic processor in the iPhone 13 series.

The iPhone SE 2022 retains its small form factor and 4.7-inch screen, along with some huge bezels that came out straight from 2017, and is priced at $429 for the base 64GB model, which is up from the previous model's MSRP of $399.

The SE has only one 12MP camera and f/1.8 aperture on the back panel, but it's gaining some improvements in software-based photography thanks to the newer processor.

Deep Fusion and HDR 4 features are now included, providing better processing of high-contrast scenes and noise reduction, both included in iPhone 13.

Apple also says that the A15 chipset helps improve battery life — not one of the previous SE's strengths, and this newer iPhone SE maintains an IP67 water resistance rating and still includes the Touch ID biometric unlock sensor.

Apple considers the front and back panel glass of the phone to be "the strongest glass in a smartphone", Qi wireless charging is still supported, pre-orders will start on Friday, March 11th, and the iPhone SE will ship on March 18th.
