Chipworks Tears Down iPhone SE

iPhone SE- A hardware combination of iPhone 5 to iPhone 6S

The Apple iPhone SE has been the talk of the town. The device has an iPhone 5S like appearance with the internals of iPhone 6S. However, there is a new addition to the story. Chipworks has dug into the device and found a lot novel about it. The device is a combination of the four generations of Apple’s iPhone.

From iPhone 5’s selfie cam to the iPhone 6S chipset, the iPhone SE has incorporated four eras of the Apple’s iPhones. Diving into the device, it has been found that the iPhone SE has an Apple A9 chipset with SK Hynix-made LPDDR4 2GB RAAM. No surprises here, we knew that SE will have the aesthetics of iPhone 6S. The handset also borrows Audio chips, NFC, and motion sensor from the same flagship.

The storage, yet again, is from the 6S but an earlier 19nm chip instead of the 15nm being shipped now.

The touchscreen of the iPhone SE is the same as that of the iPhone 5S, while, the Qualcomm modem goes back to the iPhone 6.

So, this is the complete inner construction of the iPhone SE which dates back to all of the Apple flagships.
