The new low-cost iPhone 9 to launch in March

It may be time to start saving up for the upcoming new iPhone to enter the market in March. Apple is currently assembling the new cheaper iPhone 9 which will resemble iPhone 8. There has always been a gap between the iPhone 8 and iPhone X (both released in 2017) – Apple is going back to its numerical naming tradition.

The iPhone SE2 (launched as iPhone 9) will adopt the iPhone 8’s makeup – thus it is expected that it comes with the Touch ID, A13 Bionic chip as well as a 4.7-inch LCD display. The A13 Bionic chip isn’t available on the iPhone 8 – it is found on the iPhone 11 and 11 Pro.

However, there’s another report that suggests that the low-cost iPhone will omit the home button to increase the size of the screen to 5.4 inches and may include a Face ID excluding a Touch ID. With a new release – the camera is expected to have improved.

There are a number of reports suggesting the iPhone 9’s performance will be using the latest A13 Bionic chipset by Apple.  Other reports such as GSMArena, reports the iPhone will have 4GB of RAM while Cnet believes Apple will offer 3GB of RAM to the iPhone 9.

How much for the iPhone 9

According to a report by 9to5Mac, Apple Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said the iPhone 9 will start at a low $399, roughly R5750.00.

In 2017 Apple discontinued the SE release – and the base storage capacity was 16GB – and was prized $399, the price dropped to $349 as it was discontinued, with a doubled base storage capacity of 32GB.  So according to what has been reported, the new iPhone 9 with a 32GB configuration will be the base storage capacity priced at $399.

The 64GB iPhone 8 cost $499; one can assume that the 64GB iPhone 9 will have to match the price if not slightly higher.

In the same report by 9to5Mac, it is said that Kuo believes the iPhone SE 2 to be announced by Apple in the first quarter of 2021.
