IPhone 9, price confirmed: it will cost the same as the iPhone SE

Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo reveals a preview of the price of the iPhone 9. The low cost mobile phone, presented in a few weeks, will cost the same as the iPhone SE

We are now a few weeks away from the presentation of the highly anticipated iPhone 9, the low cost mobile phone that should take the place of the outdated iPhone SE. Apparently the new smartphone from the house of Cupertino would already be in production and should be presented during the month of March with an ad hoc event.

At the various sources that confirm the commissioning of production (rebutted in recent days by the business newspaper Bloomberg) and the launch date (in this case the anticipation is Evan Blass) if you add one that reveals how much the iPhone 9 (or iPhone SE2 as you like). And, again, the source is one to trust: the price of the iPhone 9 has been revealed by Ming-Chi Kuo, probably the most reliable analyst when it comes to Apple devices.

iPhone 9: what will be the price?

In recent weeks, a series of rumors appeared online hypothesized a cost of about $ 399 for the new low cost iPhone. Price that was also confirmed by Ming-Chi Kuo: according to the Chinese analyst, the price of the iPhone 9 will be the same as the iPhone SE when it was launched in 2016 on the market. To be precise, 399 dollars.

iPhone 9: the characteristics

The new iPhone 9 or iPhone SE2 should be equipped with the same SoC A13 Bionic supplied to the iPhone 11 (although, probably, it will be "depowered") and will be able to count on the "support" of 3 GB of RAM. Confirmed the LCD screen, a cheaper choice than modern OLED displays, with a diagonal of 4.7 inches and a resolution of 1334×750 pixels. The camera will probably have a single 12-megapixel photo sensor: excluded, therefore, the presence of ultra wide-angle lens and telephoto zoom. No Face ID, replaced by Touch ID integrated into the physical Home button, thus marking the return of a large bottom bezel.
