Coronavirus spared no one. It turns out Apple will have to postpone the release of the cheap iPhone 9 (aka iPhone SE 2), mainly due to the resumption of the production capacity of Foxconn and other foundries. It is less than half. This volume is obviously unable to meet the needs of the market after listing.
Citing from sources inside Apple, the information disclosed earlier stated that Apple originally planned that it would hold a conference of this low-cost iPhone 9 at the end of March. We have also previously reported that the original iPhone 9 will hit the market on March 31. And it should go on sale on April 3. However, due to the lack of capacity, the release time has been forced to be postponed, and the specific time has not yet been determined.
According to Foxconn’s previous plans, they hope to resume 50% of their production by the end of February and plan to resume 80% of their production in mainland China in March.
This model still sports a 4.7-inch LCD non-full screen design with a glass back cover. It is supplemented with the same A13 Bionic chip as the iPhone 11 series. At the same time, the iPhone 9 will come with a 3GB LPDDR4X RAM and a 64/128GB memory combination. As for color options, there are three traditional variants of deep space gray, silver, and red.
Generally, this new machine is just a derivative version of the iPhone 8. Except for the A13 processor and 3GB of memory, the remaining parameters are exactly the same as the iPhone 8. At the same time, the appearance will not change much. And it will come with the Touch ID fingerprint recognition function.
