Apple’s iPhone SE had a massive success in the smartphone industry and this is why no one should be shocked to find out that the Cupertino based tech giant is now interested in replicating that success with a new version of the device. According to multiple reports, Apple is not going to launch iPhone SE 2 and instead, it will launch another “affordable iPhone” that is called iPhone 9. This information was leaked by Apple’s hardware manufacturers in China who announced that production has already started.
iPhone 9 Might Launch in March
Considering the fact that Apple’s Chinese manufacturers have already started working on hardware parts for iPhone 9, industry experts are claiming that the upcoming device will launch sooner than expected. iPhone 9 is believed to arrive in March and that it will be priced at $399. While the price tag might not be cheap by any means, it’s considerably more affordable than the going rate for Apple’s latest iPhone 11 models.
Key Hardware Specs and Features
According to rumors, iPhone 9 will ship with a design that looks similar to iPhone 8. This means that iPhone 9 will not feature a full-screen display and instead, it will be equipped with the classic Touch ID home button. Just like iPhone SE shipped with an older-generation design, iPhone 9 will do the same. Additionally, iPhone 9 will be equipped with a 4.7-inch screen that is expected to have minimal bezels.
Even though iPhone 9 is considered an affordable device, this doesn’t mean that it will not be able to run heavy-duty tasks, quite the opposite! iPhone 9 will be powered by Apple’s A13 Bionic processor that will be paired with 3GB of RAM and 3D Touch. This is a powerful processor that does a great job of running all the latest mobile games.
