iphone 9 release date 2019

Apple will be launching three new phones this September, but one of them might be a cheaper variant. It will probably be called the iPhone 9 and the price will be nearer to the price of the iPhone 8, rather than that of the iPhone X.  Last year, there was a lot of difference between the three offerings. We had the iPhone X, the iPhone 8 and the iPhone 8 Plus. In addition, Apple also has plans for the iPhone SE follow up in 2018, as it has not had any major update after being released in 2014.

Three Variants

It is rumored that Apple will be launching one of the phones as a successor to the iPhone X of last year. This will be the flagship phone with OLED display and a large 6.5 inches screen, dubbed as the iPhone XS Plus with a dual rear camera and supporting wireless charging.  The second one will be a smaller screen, also OLED, of 5.8 inches, dubbed as the iPhone XS and sporting a dual rear camera. However, it is the third variant with an LCD display of 6.1 inches that is being dubbed as the iPhone 9 and it will have a single camera at the back. All the three iPhones will come with glass backs, according to leaked images.

The Designs

The premier 6.5 inches OLED iPhone 2018, dubbed the iPhone XS Plus or XL Plus, will look like the supersized version of the present iPhone X. The 6.1 inches LCD iPhone, dubbed the iPhone 9, will come with a single lens camera and thicker bezels. The bezels of the iPhone 9 must be thicker, as Apple cannot use the technology used for OLED panels in case of an LCD panel.
According to Kuo in Mac Rumors, the 6.1 inches iPhone 9 will come in aluminum body and not glass. It will also not have the 3D Touch feature. Leaker Ice Universe has tweeted an image of screen protectors for the new lineup of iPhones 2018, where the iPhone 9 or the 6.1 inches device comes with a wider border.

iPhone 9/iPhone 8S

The features of the upcoming iPhone 9 will probably be a mix of the iPhone 8 along with the iPhone X. It also stands to reason that Apple will try to offer an iPhone in an affordable range, especially if there is no iPhone SE2 this year. The iPhone 9 will then offer a good entry point for Apple.

Entry Level Offering

The iPhone 9, which is the entry-level offering for 2018, will come with an LCD screen of 6.1 inches and will have room on the top for the Face ID. According to images from Slashleaks, the iPhone 9 has been seen to have a bigger camera sensor and a dual LED flash that has been repositioned. Images also show that the iPhone 9 will come with one rear camera, whereas the iPhone 11 and the Plus models, the more expensive ones, will come with dual camera features, similar to the iPhone X.
