The new low-cost iPhone is coming: it will be called iPhone 9, it will have respectable specifications and it will arrive in three different colors. Discover all the details
There is a huge wait for the new generation of low-cost smartphone signed Apple. Despite its launch on the market is scheduled in just over a month, there are still no solid news about the name and features.
After some initial confusion, the Bloomerg platform has released the final name, which should be iPhone 9. One thing is for sure: the upcoming device will be priced more favorably than the applephone models on the market today. In recent hours, some rumors have also leaked about the colors available. A Chinese platform has released some renderings of the phones, which are portrayed in three variants: white, red and black. This phone is designed to counter the advance of other cheaper brands, such as Huawei, Xiaomi, some low-cost Samsung models and other Android devices. Therefore, it will be an iPhone dedicated to the mid-range, but without sacrificing specifications and performance.
iPhone 9: what are the features?
Not much is known yet about the features of the new low-cost iPhone. A few days ago, the platform Macotakara would have provided some news about the name: it will be called iPhone 9, and not iPhone SE 2, as initially speculated by several parties. In addition, it will have a 4.7-inch LCD screen. This and many other design-related components will be similar to the iPhone 8. In fact, the device will feature a Home button in the lower and central area that will integrate Touch ID, while Face ID is not expected.
In the last few hours we also had some rumors about the names, coming from a Chinese leaker: the iPhone 9 will be available in red, black and white. The biggest uncertainties concern the phone compartment. Probably on the back will be supported a 12 MP sensor with dual lens that will be flanked by an LED flash, a solution similar to the iPhone 8 Plus.
Bloomerg a few weeks ago had provided news about the processor: the device will support the A13 Bionic chip, the same as the iPhone 11, in addition to having 3GB of RAM.
iPhone 9: price and availability
Apple would have already contacted suppliers to prepare for the production of the new device in February. Moreover, some rumors assure that Apple will launch the iPhone 9 on the market in March and that it will be priced really competitively compared to other smartphones of the brand. According to some sources, the launch price would be around $399 in the US, and it will increase if it adds storage space. Other leakers take into account the launch price of the iPhone SE in 2016 and speculate that the new version may cost around 500 euros.
Unfortunately, nothing is certain, and we will need to wait another month to get all the confirmations from the parent company. The goal of the Cupertino company is to be able to distribute 200 million devices worldwide. In addition to the economic device, Apple is preparing to launch the new iPhone 12. We just have to wait and see how they will position themselves in the market.
