India is currently under lockdown due to the COVID-19 outbreak but Apple has not taken that into consideration. The Tim Cook-owned company has launched Apple iPhone SE 2020 edition with trending features and specifications at a starting price of INR 42,500.
The iPhone SE 2020 is manufactured using durable glass and aluminum design and is powered by Apple A13 Bionic chipset with AR support. The addition of a 4.7-inch Retina HD display helps you to navigate content.
Apple claims that the iPhone SE 2nd Gen ships with the most powerful chipset at an affordable price.
Apple iPhone SE 2020 Specifications and Features
The iPhone SE 2020 features a 4.7-inch IPS Retina HD display with a resolution of 1334×750 pixels at 326PPI. The screen provides support for true tone and wide color technologies with 1400:1 contrast ratio and 625-nits brightness. The display offers fingerprint-resistant coating with support for display zoom and reachability.
The 2nd Generation iPhone SE works with the help of a powerful A13 Bionic chip with a third-generation neural engine. The smartphone is available in 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB storage capacities. However, we don’t have any information about the RAM capacity offered by the device. The handset is resistant to splashes, water, and dust via IP67 technology with 1-meter depth up to 30 minutes.
On the optics, the iPhone SE 2 features a single wide camera with a 12MP 6-element lens paired with f/1.8 aperture. You can zoom digitally up to 5x with support for advanced bokeh, Optical image stabilization, and depth control.
The camera also provides support for six portrait lighting effects such as Natural, Studio, Contour, Stage, Stage Mono, and High-Key Mono. You can record 4K videos at 24fps, 30fps, and 60fps.
While you can record FHD videos at 30fps and 60fps, the HD videos can be recorded at 30fps. The handset also provides OIS support for videos with 3x digital zoom capabilities.

Apple iPhone SE 2020 Price in India and Availability
The 64GB model of the iPhone SE is priced at INR 42,500, while the 128GB costs INR 47,800. The premium 256GB model will cost INR 58,300.
The absence of trending display technologies like dew-drop or hole-punch is disappointing since you are going to invest a huge amount. The reason for the steep increase in the price is attributed to the currency depreciation and the increase if the GST.
Moreover, the current lockdown due to COVID-19 also could have attributed to the price increase. As of this writing, we don’t have an estimated availability date but the device will be available on Flipkart after the lockdown period is over. You will also be able to purchase the handset from retail stores across India.
