iPhone SE (2022) Overview:
The major upgrade in this year’s iPhone SE (2022) is the A15 Bionic chip. This is the same chipset used in the latest iPhone 13 series. The silicon includes a 6-core CPU with two performance cores and four efficiency cores, as well as a 4-core GPU. In addition, the SoC has a 16-core Neural Engine capable of 15.8 trillion operations per second (TOPS).
On the software front, iPhone SE (2022) boots on the latest iOS 15. The storage option includes 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB. Moreover, the smartphone gains 5G connectivity; however, it does not support 5G mmWave bands. Instead, the new iPhone utilizes a sub-6 GHz band.
Similarly, the company has not disclosed the actual battery capacity of the phone. Yet, Apple claims that it can deliver up to 15 hours of video playback time, and up to 50 hours of audio playback. It charges via a 20W adapter which takes around 30 minutes to juice up the device to 50%. As is usual with Apple, the compatible adapter is sold separately.

Design and Display
Design-wise, iPhone SE (2022) retains the same design as its predecessor. As a result, you get eyesore bezels on the top and bottom of the smartphone. Similarly, it still has a home button with Touch ID support.
The device’s rear and the front are covered by glass, which Apple claims is “the toughest glass on a smartphone.” However, Apple hasn’t clearly said whether or if it’s their proprietary “Ceramic Shield” glass. Anyways, it also has IP67 certification against water and dust resistance. The iPhone SE (2022) comes in three colors: Midnight, Starlight, and (Product) Red.
On the front, there’s a 4.7-inch LCD screen, which is the same as the one seen on the SE 2020 and iPhone 8. The display boasts a fingerprint-resistant oleophobic coating, a resolution of 1334 x 750 pixels, and a peak brightness of 625 nits.
Rest of the specs
Moving on, iPhone SE (2022) sports a single 12MP sensor with OIS at the back and a 7MP sensor on the top bezel on the front. The back camera can record 4K video at up to 60 frames per second, while the front camera can capture 1080p video at up to 30 frames per second.
The smartphone still supports Qi wireless charging, though it doesn’t have Magsafe. Likewise, the connectivity option includes WiFi 6 (802.11ax), Bluetooth 5.0, and NFC.
