Apple Announces The iPhone SE – Apple has announced the iPhone SE After much clamor from iPhone loyalists about the increasingly bigger sizes of the phone.

The new iPhone SE is very similar in design to the iPhone 5S, and sports a 4-inch screen. The body of the phone comes in 3 colors: space grey, silver, gold and rose gold.





The iPhone SE has the front like that of iPhone 6 and the back like that of iPhone 5s… This is superb and a way to go for the ladies..iphone

It is however way more powerful than the 5S, and is expected to be almost as fast as the 6S with its A9 processor and M9 motion co-processor.

Like the 6S, it also comes with a 12-megapixel camera, and the ability to record 4K video. The front-camera comes with a LED flash for selfies in dark places.

The iPhone SE will hit stores on the 31st of March, and will come in two models, 16GB and64GB, priced at $399 (N79,000) and $499 (N99,000) respectively.
