iPhone SE 2020 is here. The new low-cost Apple iPhone debuted on Wednesday after much anticipation. It was originally rumoured to be called iPhone 9 or iPhone SE 2, but Apple decided to stick with iPhone SE name with 2nd-generation tag. The new iPhone retains the design that iPhone 8 also sports, but the new iPhone comes with the newer Apple A13 Bionic chip. The A13 chip powers the top-notch iPhone 11 series. Apple has also offered a Touch ID fingerprint button and a Retina HD display that sans the earlier 3D Touch experience and has Haptic Touch support. All this makes the iPhone SE (2020) an attractive entry-level iPhone. But where does it stand against the highly popular iPhone XR, at least on paper?
