Apple's new cheap iPhone is here. No, it's not the iPhone 9, but the iPhone SE (second generation), which we call the iPhone GP (until 2020) for simplicity.
It's a mid-range phone that's based on the iPhone 8 (now discontinued) on the outside and bam-to-to-now iPhone 11 on the inside. It sticks with Touch ID, like with older generations of iPhones, and there's still a Home button. Face ID is not supported.
The iPhone SE has the same true-tone 4,7-inch Retina display from the iPhone 8 and can fit in older iPhone 8 cases (well, it's the same size). It is also waterproof and wireless charging.
The phone is available in black, white, and Product Red, with memory sizes starting at 64GB like other iPhone models. However, the other available sizes are 128 and 256 GB - there is no 512 GB model.
