|Processor||A13 Bionic Chip [Latest]|
|Screen Size/Resolution||4.7″/ 750×1344 px, 327 PPI|

Apart from these, the iPhone SE 2020 comes loaded with iOS v13.0 and will support 4G/VOLTE, fingerprint sensor, WaterProof IP67 and with a dual sim support (secondary esim).
It’s a good buy for those who want to switch to iOS or those upgrading from iPhone 6 or older models. The fluidity and smoothness of iOS devices can’t be compared with most Android devices with double the RAM and latest processors.
However, at Rs.42,500, you’ll find a host of alternate options especially with Android Smartphones (even flagships). Had it been somewhere around Rs.30,000 for the latest iPhone SE 2020, we could easily say just go for it without a second thought.
