Susan Jyakhwo 30 Jan, 2020

We were expecting a new flagship phone from Apple naming it either iPhone XII (iPhone 12) or iPhone XX (iPhone 20 as of Galaxy S20), at the start of the year 2020. But recently information had been leaked about iPhone 9. It seems like Apple has been working to build new devices to target users of mid-range smartphone users. Apple is using the old body of the iPhone 8 and new chipset to create a descent device called iPhone 9. So let’s find out what are the features Apple will cramp into iPhone 9?


Overview of Apple iPhone 9

A report had been released during CES 2020 event highlighting the information regarding iPhone 9. The new iPhone 9 will use the body of the iPhone 8 but it will also feature the latest A13 Bionic chipset. This means that iPhone 9 will look similar to the iPhone 8 but it will perform like iPhone X. The front of the iPhone 8 has a 4.7-inch display but they will fit a 5.5-inch display in the same form factor. Similarly, Apple will use the Face ID feature for the secure unlock of the device. 

According to recent information, Apple will keep home button in iPhone 9, but they will not use Touch ID feature so that they could use bigger display and they claiimed that the Face ID feature will be better in iPhone 9.

Not only that, the camera quality of both front and back camera sensor will be improved. It is highly likely that the iPhone will put a dual camera setup at back rather than a single sensor. Moreover, the TrueDepth camera sensor will provide a better depth of field and the quality of photo and video will also improve. 


We expect, Apple to release its flagship phone, iPhone 12 or iPhone 20 along with iPhone 9. But those pieces of information had been kept secret from us. We will let you know more once the information regarding it will release. It seems like they will release iPhone 9 and other Apple products in March 2020 event. But due to recent outbreak of Corona Virus in China, the production process might get affected. Recent information highlighted that the outbreak of pandemic CoronaVirus could compromise Apple's production line. Henan and Guangdong Province are the center place of Apple production line and it is near to Hubei Province where more than 100 coronavirus infection case has been reported. It means Chinese government will take extreme measures in these regions to qurentine the infection preventing its widespead. As major chinese cities like Wuhan has already been quarantined and workers are informed to stay in their respective home, the production of iPhone 9 might get delayed. But Apple has a dual-sourcing system to insure the produciton of adequate iPhone 9 devices, which still limits the availability of these handset during release. 

iPhone 9 will compete with Galaxy S10 Lite, Note 10 Lite, Reno 3 Pro, and upcoming OnePlus 8 Lite, Pocophone F2 and Oppo Find X2. So, what do you think about it? Let us know in a comment below.
