iPhone 9 Leaks: Release Date, Price, Design, Feature Rumors, and Assumptions 

Apple just had a WWDC without mentioning the iPhone 9, iPhone SE2 or iPhone 11, disappointing the audience in this regard. On the other hand, we advised you not to freak out because the company is probably saving all the iPhone related news for the Autumn keynote which will most likely bring the much-awaited announcement regarding the iPhone 8’s successor.

Until then, here’s what we know so far about the iPhone 9.

Potential release date and name

Apple usually announces its newest iPhone during the Autumn keynote in September, so we expect the company to do the same this year as well. Regarding a potential release date, well, using previous iPhone release schedules as a guide, the iPhone 9 release cycle could look like this:

  • 11 September 2018: Announcement of iPhone 9 at the Apple Autumn keynote
  • 14 September 2018: iPhone 9 will be made available for preorder
  • 21 September 2018: iPhone 9 will officially go on sale

It’s not a sure thing whether the iPhone 8’s successor will be called iPhone 9 as Apple may choose to drop the numbers and just call the new device iPhone (2018) just like they did with the iPad.

Design and features

KGI Securities’ analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said that Apple would be totally overhauling its iPhone new lineup. The successor of iPhone 8 is said to be the cheapest device of the lineup. It will also probably feature an aluminum construction together with a 6.1-inch LCD screen.

The Wall Street Journal claims that all the iPhones released in 2018 will be almost bezel-less. According to the publication, Apple is planning to implement Full Active LCD a flexible display made by the company Japan Display. This would enable the new devices to have small bezels of only 0.5mm.

Bloomberg reported that the iPhone 9 would get rid of the Touch ID and replace it with Face ID.

Kuo also claims that the device will not feature a dual-camera but a basic single rear camera like the iPhone 8. On the other hand, it seems that the iPhone 9 will come with a dual-aperture system like the Samsung Galaxy S9 that would allow users to take great pics in various lighting conditions.

Pricing

Latest reports released in April claim that the iPhone 9 could be priced at around $550 which is cheaper compared to the iPhone 8. Kuo’s initial guess was a bit higher, but he changed his prediction due to the release of the more affordable 2018 iPad.
