iPhone 9 Release date, Price, Specs, Feature
This is surprising that iPhone 8 released few months back and people have started to discuss iPhone 9 release date, how much it will cost, what all specifications and features it will have. I was searching for the some stuff on the internet and found one of the best tech website MacWorld is discussing different features and the release date of iPhone 9.
According to this rumors, iPhone 9 release date should be between 2018 as after iPhone 8 released this year in September, the year 2019 could be the year of iPhone 9 and iPhone 9 Plus.
This year 2017, things been bit unpredictable as it happened for the first time that Apple is announced three models of iPhone namely iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X instead of iPhone 7S & iPhone 7S Plus with same basic hardware configuration and features. The company shocked the world by announcing skipping the upgraded “S” version of iPhone 7 and straight away launched iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 along with special edition iPhone X.
iPhone 9 or iPhone 11?
While there are great chances the new iPhone will be called iPhone 9, but some websites like expertreviewsuk, believes new iPhone wouldn’t be iPhone 9, it will be iPhone 11 or iPhone XI instead. The “XI” is said to be roman representation of digit 11.
If we notice the trend the company has followed for the naming of different models of iPhone, it makes sense to call 2018 year iPhone, the iPhone 9 ! The iPhone 9 release date will be sometime in September of the year 2018.
Except this year’s exception, the company has followed, a pattern for naming each year’s iPhone and hence its more likely that new iPhone is called iPhone 9 and not iPhone 11 ! Those website who believe new iPhone will be called iPhone 11 instead of iPhone 9 is anticipating based on the naming of iPhone X. According to them, X is a roman representation of 10 and hence since iPhone X (10) is already launched, new iPhone is going to be called iPhone 11
iPhone 9 Specs & Features
iPhone 9 Display
While 2017 iPhone X got OLED edge-to-edge display and 3D sensors that made this iPhone bit costlier, year 2018 iPhone 9 and iPhone 9 too suppose to get OLED display not LCD touch screen. The company had placed big order for OLED screens that could be use for iPhone 9 and iPhone 9 Plus in 2019. The screen resolution of the iPhone 9 and iPhone 9 Plus will be 1125 x 2436 pixels which makes 469 ppi pixel density.
In the last few years, we have seen major design changes in the iPhone and this year’s iPhone X that comes with bazel-less design is a great example. The rumors suggest that iPhone 9 too (along with iPhone 9 Plus) will get bazel-less design. However, some rumors talk about flexible display as well.
We have seen company experimenting with few things. The iPhone 7 plus had dual-lens camera and new iPhone X got bazel-less design. The iPhone 9 might get tweak with design yet again but what exactly would that change be, we have long way to know that.
Talking about other specifications, its bit early to predict what all specifications and features iPhone 9 will sport but we know the company always launch new iPhone with latest configuration and hence iPhone 9 will too have great specification.
Processor and Operating System
iPhone 9 will definitely sport the latest processor powered by Apple’s A11 chipset and the latest version of Apple operating system- iOS 12. The latest version of iOS and Apple chip will be announced well before the announcement of iPhone 9 and iPhone 9 Plus.
Talking about the memory, iPhone 9 might get 4 GB RAM while the plus version get 2 GB extra. As far as iPhone 9 storage is concern, the phone said to be coming in two variants of 128 GB and 256 GB only.
Of course there will be tweaks with selfie as well rear camera as well since camera is something that the customers pay more attention to. The company understand that pretty well and always improve photography experience with iPhone camera. iPhone 7 Plus dual lens camera for the first time and today, it has become a trend !
The companies like Samsung is suppose to launch Galaxy S9 with dual lens camera while the company like OnePlus already got it included in OnePlus 5. As far as the megaxpixel count of the Phone is concern, it might get 16 megapxiel rear camera with features like flash, face detection, geo tagging etc. The selfie camera too might get dual lens that will help you take selfie in a better way.
Other features of iPhone 9:
- Daul SIM card slots
- L shape battery for performance improvement
- Long range wireless charging
- Fast charging
iPhone 9 Price
As far as the pricing is concern, that’s again too early to predict the price however if we analyse the pricing strategies of previously released iPhone, the price range of $900-$1100 should be the ideal range that the company should sell iPhone 128 GB version of 9 and iPhone 9 Plus for in the United States.
We have seen the rivals such as Samsung, OnePlus been making good smartphones and it puts bit of pressure on the company to price iPhone 9 accordingly. The OnePlus 5 which have great specifications and dual lens camera is priced ridiculously low.
