iPhone 9 Specifications
4.7″ LCD Display
The display size in smartphones is increasing day by day and it’s not easy to use any of the new smartphones with a single hand. Starting from the iPhone 6 Apple had offered a compact 4.7″ display size till the iPhone 8 and once again we are going to see a 4.7″ iPhone. According to the renders, iPhone 9 shares the same footprint as the iPhone 8. The phone measures 138.5 x 67.4 x 7.8mm (8.6mm with rear camera bump). It is thicker than the iPhone 8 (7.3mm) and we might get a bit extra battery life. The display will remain HD IPS Panel and of course, there is no notch.
iPhone 8-like Design
The design is totally inspired by iPhone 8. We have big bezels on the front with a physical Touch ID in the Home button. There is a single rear camera on the back. The power button and volume rockers are present on the sides. However, unlike the glossy glass back panel of the iPhone 8, we might see a frosted glass back. Same the iPhone 11 series which will be a differentiating factor. The steel frame resembles the iPhone X.
Welcome Back Touch ID
iPhone SE 2 retains the Touch ID which is a welcome change. It is one of the most loved features among iPhone users. Many of them prefer Touch ID over the Face ID. Just in case you don’t know, iPhone SE 2 will not have the Face ID. Most likely the gesture navigation will not be available on the iPhone 9 due to the presence of the Home button.
Single and Better Camera
As you can see from the renders there is a single rear camera. Most likely it’ll have the same camera hardware as the iPhone XR which is not a bad thing at all.
Superior Performance with A13
iPhone 9 specification list includes A13 Bionic chipset which powers the iPhone 11 trio. There is no doubt that this phone will perform like a beast. iPhone XR and iPhone 11 series offers excellent battery life and it is safe to assume that the battery life on iPhone 9 is also going to be great.
