The Youtube ConceptsiPhone channel, through designer Mauro Battino, published a concept video demonstrating what the iPhone 9, also known as iPhone SE 2, might look like. This will be the new edition of the iPhone. It aim to honor the classic design of mobile phones, based on the iPhone 8.
As you can see, the video is extremely faithful to Apple’s ad style, with all the cinematic presentation, highlighting the phone’s design and all its construction. At the end of the video, the emphasis is placed on the iPhone 9 camera. It supposedly will have only one lens, referring to the times before the iPhone 7 Plus.
iPhone 9 should have the same processor as the iPhone 11
The ideology of iPhone SE is that they are iPhones with a classic design but more recent hardware. Therefore, it is expected that the iPhone 9 will come equipped with the A13 Bionic processor. It’s the same that powers the iPhone 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max.
In terms of RAM, the iPhone 9 should stay at 3 GB, with internal storage options of 64 GB and 128 GB. In terms of colors, the video shows us the famous Space Gray, white and red Product RED, which is part of Apple’s project financing for HIV / AIDS projects.
Finally, in terms of values, the SE 2 / 9 should arrive at a $399 starting price. According to rumors and forecasts from analysts like Ming-Chi Kuo, the device is expected to be presented around March this year.
According to the recent reports, the iPhone SE 2 is already under trial production. Furthermore, they confirm that the smartphone will be dubbed iPhone 9 with a launch scheduled for sometime in March. According to the industry supply chain the total order volume would exceed 30 million units.
Apple would begin mass production of the iPhone 9 sometime in mid-February. It would appeal to emerging markets and may sell for under CNY 3,000 (~$432). That’s a good price that is also in line with the iPhone SE that first launched for $399 back in 2016.
