It’s iPhone 9, Not iPhone SE 2
The name is confirmed by the company, and it’s either going to be iPhone 9. The iPhone 9 will be available at a cheaper price than other premium priced flagships in the same segment. iPhone 9 testing is complete, and is ready to hit the markets.
iPhone 9 To Come With At Entry Premium Pricing
iPhone 9 will come with the specs and features as iPhone 11, but at a cheaper price tag. Some reports suggest it to be iPhone SE 2, while some hint at being iPhone 9. Leaving the nomenclature apart, let’s check out the details.
iPhone For All Markets
Said to be a rip-off as iPhone SE, the iPhone 9 will target the entry premium market with similar specs as the current iPhone 11. According to the latest reports, iPhone 9 will launch officially in India and other markets at a very attractive price tag.
iPhone 9 To Have iPhone 8 Like Design
There have been numerous rumours about the iPhone SE 2, and it’s ready to be unveiled. But it will launch as iPhone 9 as the rumours, and not as iPhone SE 2. The renders hint at as similar features as iPhone 11, sporting a 4.7-inch display with an iPhone 8 like design.
The iPhone 9 or iPhone SE 2 will basically offer a refreshed experience with the same body and design.
Single Camera Sensor
The device will come with a single main camera, probably the 12-megapixel camera as the current iPhone 11 series. Up front, iPhone 9 will have thick bezels on both sides with a physical home button, same as iPhone 8.
iPhone 9 or iPhone SE 2 will have a single camera inside the circular module as on iPhone 8.
Old iPhone Design, New Features
iPhone SE worked well in some segments and markets, and Apple will target such consumers who don’t like notches or the new Apple design. The company altered the design completely with iPhone 6 series, and later brought back the same with iPhone SE featuring latest internals.
There are people who still want smaller sized iPhones, and that made the iPhone SE a hit.
iPhone X Notch On Top?
The company will again follow a similar route with the same strategy for the iPhone 9, this time with the iPhone 8 design. It was iPhone 8 with which the company adopted a completely glass body build, and thus iPhone 9 will feature a glass sandwich body.
The company again shifted to a new design starting with iPhone X and the iPhone 11 series.
Old iPhone Experience With New Hardware
With iPhone 9, Apple will just fill in the gap here, and will target users who want to upgrade to a new iPhone, but want the same iPhone 7-like design.
The upcoming iPhone 9 is expected to be powered by the latest Apple A13 Bionic chip with a 12-megapixel main camera as a single rear sensor and the same front-facing camera.
The display will be the same 4.7-inch LCD display, the one being used for iPhone 8.
