So, the new Apple iPhone SE went official yesterday and it’s very much an iPhone 6s internals in a 5s body. Well, almost…
As you’ve probably heard, the SE will not support Force Touch, but on the upside, AnTuTu detected 2GB of RAM – as much as the 6s has and double what the 6 and those before it had.
For one, the Touch ID sensor is the slower first-generation, unlike the 6s models (first-gen was also used on the iPhone 6).
Another change is the selfie camera – it’s back to 1.2MP with f/2.4. That means it’s the iPhone 5 selfie camera, the 5s went to f/2.2 and the 6s upped the resolution to 5MP. Retina flash is available, though (yay?).
The iPhone SE uses the M9 motion co-processor but lacks a barometer. This was used for activity tracking as a power-efficient way to estimate how much you’ve climbed (going up the stairs, for example, before that the GPS was used).
