It is speculated that this new iPhone would be the successor of Apple’s one of the most successful iPhones – iPhone SE. It was Kuo’s report which claimed Apple would be releasing one iPhone in the first quarter of the next year. Is it iPhone 9 or iPhone SE 2?
He also claimed that this will be the low budget iPhone which will feature Touch ID and a 4.7-inch display. Such rumors find the conclusion that this model will be the upgrade to iPhone SE. many reports claim that iPhone SE 2 is happening while some also say that this will be called iPhone XE which actually will be the identical successor of the SE but Apple would rename the device. Now recently spread a rumor in the market says that this device would be called iPhone 9. Yes, Apple may reveal iPhone 9 in the third month of 2021.
FYI, Apple announced the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X on the occasion of the tenth anniversary of the iPhone in 2017. So technically, Apple broke the chain and directly announced iPhone X (10) in order to celebrate the decade of the smartphone series and skipped iPhone 9. It was being said at the time that next year Apple might come up with iPhone 9 but Apple released iPhone XR, iPhone XS, and iPhone XS Max and this year is dedicated to the iPhone 11 series. This new rumor could be true as Apple would want to fill the void of iPhone SE 2 and iPhone 9 with a single model but all the game lies in the name.

The reports from J.P. Morgan and Ming-Chi Kuo suggest that this new model will derive design from iPhone 8 and but will be packed with the latest A13 chip. A 4.7-inch display with a home button with Touch ID but some rumors also suggest that Power Key will be powered with Touch ID as Face ID will not be the part of the features of this device to maintain its cost.
The expected starting price of the iPhone 9 would be $399 with a variety of color options available. Still, this is not an official statement or confirmation from Apple but it would be exciting to see with what name Apple may come up as there are lots of speculations in the market. Apple may also come up with a totally new name.
