Everything We Know About iPhone 9 Before The September Launch
The long-rumored iPhone 9 seems to be on its way and coming this September alongside two other iPhones—namely, the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Plus. The tech giant Apple might follow its strategy for the iPad and drop the entire numbering to replace the new line of iPhones into the X2 and X2 Plus differentiating the sizes.
According to PC Magazine, the upcoming device will be a 6.1-inch model with an LCD display. Previous leaks from the Federal Communications Commission indicated a very similar glass and aluminum body with the LCD screen. The device will feature a glass back to take advantage of the wireless charging technology. The bezels will be larger in a 16:9 form factor.
The already-capable A11 chipset will likely be updated to the A11X or A12 to optimize the device’s performance when playing the augmented reality games and managing more frames out of high-end games. A lighter and cheaper aluminum is rumored to decrease production costs. iPhone 9 is expected to be the most affordable option and will likely cost around $700.
In the photography department, the iPhone 9 will have a single camera with a 12-megapixel sensor, which is the same kind that is seen on the current iPhone 8. The AI voice assistant Siri will be restructured to compete and catch up to the competitors Amazon and Google. Once the iOS 12 will roll out in the market, more serious improvements will be expected to be seen to enhance the functionality and capabilities of the voice assistant.
Meanwhile, the iPhone 11 will be a 5.8-inch iPhone X successor and may be priced around $800 to $900. The iPhone 11 Plus will be a 6.5-inch Plus version of the current iPhone X. This model will be the most costly among them at a price between $900 and $1,000. Both of these devices will have the notch to accommodate the sensors for the TrueDepth camera and Face ID.
