Apple iPhone 9 Price & Sepcs
Apple is posed to launch a cheaper iPhone 9 in 2018, and whether or not it goes by that specific name, we are expected a new all-screen phone closer to the price than the price.
Of course, we do expect an new flagship phone too in the form of the with a September launch window, but everyone holding out for a more affordable device from Apple should look no further than the 9.
Update: A render video shows off how the iPhone 9 might look, revealing an iPhone X-like design but with a single-lens camera and a 6.1-inch screen. Plus, an Apple patent has revealed a single-lens camera that can sense depth like a dual-lens one, so there’s a chance this is headed for the iPhone 9.
Apple will likely want to offer cheaper iPhone options below the ‘X’ series, so the door is open for successors to the iPhone 8 and .
So, in a way, we will get the iPhone 9 and iPhone 9 Plus as far as incremental upgrades to the 8 and 8 Plus are concerned, it’s just that Apple will probably go back to the drawing board when it comes to naming.
We don’t have any solid information on the iPhone 9 at this point, but rumors are starting to trickle in, pointing to a larger screen and a mix of a iPhone 8 and iPhone X features.
You’ll find all the information so far in the sections below, followed by a wishlist of sorts, comprised of features that we really want Apple to double-down on for 2018’s smartphone.
The iPhone 9 will almost certainly land in September 2018, given Apple’s typical release date schedule.
When it does it’s sure to be expensive – though possibly less so than you might expect.
The only real
we’ve heard so far comes from an analyst, who estimates a price of $900-$1100
That would put it at a similar price to the iPhone 8, but far below the iPhone X, and likely well below the iPhone XI – if such a phone launches.
The cost might further be kept down slightly if Apple decides not to bundle a 3.5mm headphone adaptor with it, as might happen. But that just means you’ll have to buy one separately if you have normal wired headphones.
It’s worth noting that the iPhone 9 probably isn’t the iPhone XI. The latter is expected to be the super-premium successor to the iPhone X, while the iPhone 9 might be more of a sequel to the iPhone 8.
That assumes Apple continues to split its range up in such a way, but early iPhone 9 rumors suggest it will, and one of the rumors includes , showing how the phone might look.
As you can see in the video below, it looks a lot like the iPhone X, but with a single-lens camera. The source adds that it has a 6.1-inch OLED screen.
