iPhone 9 Likely To Be Launched in June
iPhone 9, Apple’s rumoured budget smartphone, is expected to support Touch ID and the latest iOS 14, according to an online report. The smartphone, also commonly referred to as iPhone SE 2, could also come out by June this year and will enable Express Transit.
The phone was initially slated to launch in March, but it was postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak. Apple is yet to make an official statement about its upcoming devices and services.
The latest set of rumours have come from 9to5Mac, which after observing iOS 14 development code, pointed out to new hardware from Apple, including a new iPad Pro and Apple TV remote. The code also indicated the impending launch of AirTags and iPhone 9. The report further states that Apple is hoping to push iPhone 6 users to switch to iPhone 9 through enabling Express Transit capabilities, which lets users use Apple Pay without requiring authentication like Touch ID or Face ID.
The next-generation iPad is also expected to come with better camera setup. The rumour also indicates that the camera setup will include a time-of-flight 3D sensor, a wide-angle lens, an ultra-wide lens, and a telephoto lens.
According to earlier reports, the iPhone 9 will come with a 4.7-inch LCD panel, A13 chip and 3GB of RAM. Given the price of its predecessor, we can expect it to cost starting $399 (approx. Rs. 29,200).
