Here’s what the new iPhone 9 will look like

SvetApple has put together renders of the new iPhone 9, giving consumers the clearest idea yet of what Apple’s new low-cost smartphone, set to be released in March, will look like.

Apple is widely expected to launch the iPhone SE 2, rumored to be called the iPhone 9, as soon as March, offering price-conscious consumers a powerful new phone at a budget price.

One of the most frequently asked questions is what the new phone will look like.

We already know that Apple has based the iPhone 9 off of the design of the iPhone 8, and thanks to new renders from SvetApple, we can see what the new iPhone 9 could look like when it arrives.

There’ll be no changes from the iPhone 8 on the front of the device, and the model is expected to feature an LCD display. The model won’t feature 3D Touch, as Apple has been removing this from its devices, but it will offer a Touch ID fingerprint sensor for logging in.

What Apple is expected to change is the camera.

Its lens will be the same high-quality as the iPhone 8, though some have suggested that Apple will give the device an iPhone 11-style camera to better compete with Google and its Pixel 3a, which wowed critics upon launching.

The new iPhone 9 is also expected to feature the Apple A13 Bionic chip and 4 GB RAM, so whilst it will be an affordable smartphone, it will pack its punch and offer high performance.

Battery wise, insiders have told us to expect the same sort of battery life as the iPhone 8, which was generous, and wireless and fast charging options will be available as standard.
