September is the month in which three iPhones are expected to be launched by Apple. One of them, probably called iPhone 9, will be an entry-level model with LCD contrary to the other two models with OLED ones. OnLeaks, the well-known tipster, had shared in the previous month the renders of the LCD iPhone to show its key features and appearance. Sanfeng, a Chines protective case firm sent GizmoChina some case renders that you can see today.
The new case renders revealed iPhone 9’s design which happens to match with recently leaked pictures. In the images below, you can see how iPhone 9 will look a little similar to iPhone X from last year due to its notched display. Notched displays are also expected to feature in the OLED iPhone which will come along with iPhone 9.
What other rumors say is that the phone’s LCD in the case will have 6.1 inches. iPhone 9 might also come with a display supplied by Japan Display which is Full Active. However, there will also be a similarity to LG G7 if it will come with MLCD+ screen technology that enables the delivery of 1,000 nits of brightness while not consuming more power.
What else is revealed by iPhone 9’s case renders is the fact that the handset will not feature a Touch ID fingerprint scanner. In order to use Face ID to unlock the phone, the big notch on the iPhone X seems only to provide a single option for that which is for user’s face to be scanned in 3D mostly for authenticating payments.
On the backside of the iPhone there might be placed an LED enabled single camera. Lossless zoom and Portrait Mode, the advanced photography features, the might not be allowed to enjoy due to iPhone 9’s lack of a dual camera.
iPhone X Features
The place of the power key, like the iPhone X, will be on the right side of the phone while the left one will be occupied by the volume rocker and the silent/ring switch. Between the bottom side features, the dual speakers, there will be a Lightning connector. However, in the renders above, the awaited iPhone 9 seems thicker and recent leaks confirmed a measure of the 150.9 x 76.5 x 8.3mm.
On the specs of iPhone 9, there is no information. We can assume that, like the other upcoming OLED iPhones, the entry-level one will also be fueled by Apple A12 SoC. $650 is its expected price.
