The iPhone SE 2020 houses a fast A13 Bionic chip, 4.7-inch Retina display, Touch ID sensor, and wireless charging. Although there's only one camera on the front and back, they get a boost from Apple's machine learning tricks to capture portraits. Face ID fans will also be bummed to learn that the new iPhone SE doesn't support that feature. Despite those few limitations, it's still an excellent phone if you don't require
the cutting-edge horsepower found in the newer iPhone 12 models. (Also make sure to follow our iPhone 12 deals coverage for sales on Apple's premium smartphones).
