We are currently waiting for Apple to launch the iPhone 9. However, even as we wait, there are reports that the company is also working on a Plus variant.
The iPhone 9 will launch with a 4.7-inch display. This is quite small according to some people’s standards. So, the iPhone 9 Plus will reportedly sport a 5.5-inch screen. Just like the iPhone 9, the Plus version will use the A13 Bionic chipset. This will match the device up with the current iPhone 11 lineup.
According to the source, iOS 14 code confirmed the iPhone 9 Plus. The iPhone 9 and 9 Plus will replace the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus respectively as the cheapest entry points to the iOS realm.
We expect both the iPhone 9 and 9 Plus to keep the TouchID security option. The iPhone 9 lineup design is quite similar to the iPhone 8’s. This may be a dealbreaker for some people, considering the huge bezels. However, with low price points, the phones will still likely be well accepted.
The iPhone 9 was supposed to launch in March. However, the launch has been delayed indefinitely as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak affecting the supply chain.
