Apple iPhone SE 5G (2022)

On the design side, we expected quite a few changes and the iPhone SE 2022 does indeed follow in the footsteps of the iPhone SE of 2020, as it takes over the chassis of the iPhone 8. The consequences are immediate: we therefore keep the central button with Touch ID to unlock our phone.

5G and A15 Bionic

The most important novelty of this 3rd generation iPhone SE is the addition of an A15 Bionic chip, the same as on the iPhone 13. In concrete terms, this means that Apple’s mid-range smartphone can now use 5G.

The chip is also very powerful in everyday life. Nearly 1.8 times more than the iPhone 8 for the CPU, 2.2 times more than the iPhone 8’s GPU still, and 26 times more in terms of machine learning calculations.

The phone will be available out of the box with iOS 15 and will need updating for many years to come, as is often the case with Apple. A good investment for a durable smartphone.

Also note that the iPhone SE will offer up to 256GB of storage for the first time.

Camera: the weak link, not so much

It includes a 12-megapixel sensor that takes advantage of all the software features present on the iPhone 13, such as Deep Fusion, Smart HDR 4, improved video quality thanks to the IPS, the ability to apply photographic styles or even a portrait mode … In short , he should do well. However, it is unclear if it will have a cinematic mode.
