We know that Apple is preparing to officialize a new entry-level iPhone, which should arrive as a successor to the iPhone SE, however, bringing features inherited from the iPhone 8.
The chronologically called iPhone 9, which recently starred in yet another leak, is expected to start mass production in February, with a commercial launch possibly in March.
The information was released by sources linked to the component supply chain and shared through the Bloomberg information portal.
Apparently Apple will split the laptop’s manufacturing between Foxconn, Pegatron, and Winston. According to the most recent leaks, the model will hit the shelves with a 4.7 ”screen, Apple A13 Bionic processor and the nostalgic Home button with a built-in Touch ID.
But at the same time, other leaks suggest a slightly larger size for the display, totaling 5.4 ”, as well as corroborating that the model could bring Face ID instead of the physical button to access the main screen and biometrics – which, honestly speaking, it would make a lot more sense taking into account the current market trends.
The first rumors about the direct successor of the iPhone SE / iPhone 8 began to appear as early as 2017, with 2018 being corroborated, including, as the year of launch. After that, they returned in 2019 at the end of the year and, little by little, we have seen that they are becoming more and more frequent, reinforcing a launch soon.
