Impatient over Apple’s new low-cost smartphone, coming this spring?
You’re in luck: OnLeaks has shared some renders of what it thinks the new iPhone 9 could look like.
The company, which previously shared highly-accurate renders of the iPhone 11 Pro months before the product was released, has shown off exclusive renders of the iPhone 9 (or iPhone SE 2).
First published to iGeeksBlog, the new renders fall in line with rumors and predictions of an iPhone 8-style smartphone with a home button and a single camera on the rear.
As we have previously reported, Ming-Chi Kuo suggested that the model would feature a 4.7-inch LCD display with thick bezels, but unlike the original iPhone SE, there’d be no headphone jack.
One of the biggest upgrades over the iPhone 8 will be the new internals, with rumors suggesting that Apple will throw in its latest A13 Bionic chip for speed and performance.
However, the new device won’t feature 3D Touch, which Apple has been discontinuing.
These first-look renders of the iPhone 9 show a metal frame and a glass back akin to the iPhone 11, but there’s no guarantee that this will be the final finish.
With Apple expected to sell the new device for less than $400, we’re expecting a metal or plastic finish to cut costs.
According to OnLeaks, the new iPhone 9 will be a smidge thicker than the iPhone 8 (coming in at 7.8mm). The company has said that the dimensions are not estimations, rather they come from reliable sources inside of Apple’s production line, where the iPhone 9 is made.
It’s expected that Apple will release the iPhone 9 by the end of March, in two storage options (64GB and 128GB) and three colors, including Space Gray, Silver, and (PRODUCT)RED.
