“IPhone 9” may be launched in March

Rumor: Apple will hold an event on March 31 to launch “iPhone 9” and other news

We have already talked a lot here about an alleged successor to iPhone SE, which has already been called “IPhone SE 2” and recently came to be named by the rumors as «IPhone 9».

Regardless of the name, Ming-Chi Kuo (the analyst who hits most when it comes to Apple releases) said that such a device could be launched by Apple in March.

Now, the Bloomberg reinforced this claim.

According to the vehicle, the company is preparing to launch the new iPhone in March and the production of the device would be in charge of three partners: Foxconn, Pegatron and Wistron.

Regarding the technical specifications of the phone, the Bloomberg basically said what we’ve heard in other rumors, too: maintaining the Touch ID on the Home button, processor A13 Bionicscreen LCD in 4.7 inches, design similar to the iPhone 8 and a rear camera.

IGeeksBlog.com today released renders obtained by @OnLeaks that show what the “iPhone 9” will look like – that is, the second generation of the iPhone SE, expected in March / April.

We have, as expected, a base inspired by the iPhone 8 (4.7 ”screen, Touch ID, etc.), with a frosted glass back and a single wide-angle camera.

It should be equipped with the same chip as the current flagships, the A13 Bionic.

So, how much would you pay for it?

The possible price of this supposed model, however, was not mentioned.

In the past, Kuo predicted that such an entry smartphone could arrive costing from $ 400 in the United States; there, currently, the iPhone 8 64GB is sold for $ 450.

Still according to the analyst, the main audience of this new model would be the owners of iPhones 6 (a base of about 100 million users) who are not so interested in upgrading to the latest models, which have Face technology ID and multiple cameras.

In addition, as the iPhone 6 is not compatible with iOS 13, this could also be another reason for such an audience to choose this new model – since users would gain access to services such as Apple Arcade and Apple TV +.

Will we have a new iPhone family member coming in March? Make your bets!
