If you never liked the newer iPhone models that scrapped the physical home button, you’re not alone. But fret not, Apple has finally launched their second generation of the iPhone SE and it comes with great specs while keeping that physical home button and Touch ID.

Starting at just S$649, you’ll be able to choose from 64GB, 128GB and 256GB of storage and the phone comes in three colours: Black, White and (PRODUCT)RED.

The iPhone SE runs on the latest A13 bionic chip that’s also in the iPhone 11 Pro, so you know that the performance on this phone will be just as powerful as Apple’s flagship products.

It’s running a 4.7″ Retina HD display, perfect for consumers who miss the small form factor of the older Apple phones. The iPhone SE is also rated IP67, meaning it’s water-resistant to 1 metre for 30 minutes.

Battery life is touted at 13 hours on a single charge, and the phone supports wireless charging and 18W wired charging which will get from 0-50% in 30 minutes.

Pre-orders start from 8 pm SGT on 17 April, and the phone will be available from 24 April onwards.

More information about the iPhone SE (starting from S$649) and purchase options are available at Apple’s website.
