The iPhone 9 has never existed but, perhaps, soon we will see it in stores: it would be the famous and long-awaited iPhone SE 2, the second version of Apple's smartphone "cheap". A smartphone that is talked about for a long time, but always for rumors since Apple currently does not release any information about it.
The indiscretion, once again, we owe it to the Japanese blog Mac Otakara that several times has proven to have good sources and to be reliable. And, on the other hand, the technical characteristics of a hypothetical iPhone 9 would justify the name. It would, in fact, be an updated version of the iPhone 8, with a more modern design. Just as the first iPhone SE was based largely on the iPhone 6S hardware, but had a similar design to the iPhone 5S. It would be, therefore, an iPhone with good technical features but with a small screen and a price below 400 euros.
iPhone 9: technical features
Always according to the latest rumors, the iPhone 9 would be an iPhone 8 "pumped up" with the SoC A13 Bionic, probably 3 GB of RAM, 64/128 GB internal memory and a 4.7-inch screen. It is not known if it will be an OLED or LCD screen (the second option is more likely due to cost issues). The iPhone 9 could have a physical home button and 3D Touch ID.
iPhone 9: when it comes out and how much it costs
According to reliable analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the iPhone SE 2/9 should hit the market soon: in the first quarter of 2020. The assumed price is $399 in the United States, for the version with 64 GB of internal storage. Also according to Kuo, an iPhone 9 Plus should also arrive in 2021, with a larger size and price. The iPhone 9/SE2 Plus will also be different in design: more similar to the X range than to the 8 and the screen will be 5.5 or 6.1 inches but, like the normal version, it will not be equipped with Face ID.
iPhone 12 in 2020
According to all analysts, and also according to logic, after the presentation of the iPhone 9/SE2 in the first quarter will occur that of the iPhone 12 in September 2020. At the moment it is speculated that it will be presented even in four versions, all with OLED display. Two models are expected to have just two rear cameras and two others are expected to have three. The screens will range from 5.4 to 6.7 inches, with two models (one with two and one with three rear cameras) both 6.1 inches.
