Apple iPhone 9: A 6.1-inch Phone with iPhone X Features

Loyal iPhone aficionados and Filipino netizens are excited about the release of the iPhone 9, as rumors regarding its specs are making rounds on the internet. Although there’s no definite information on the much-awaited device, the various rumors online suggest a bigger display and a combination of iPhone X and iPhone 8 features. Let’s cut to the chase and learn all the latest information on the iPhone 9.

Latest Rumors

According to the latest reports, the iPhone 9 is said to have an aluminum front panel, a single-lens rear camera, and a 6.1-inch LCD display with a tiny 0.5mm bezel. It is rumored to come with a metal back which is quite different from all the iPhone models in 2017 that wield a glass back. If this peculiar move by Apple in the design aspect will push through, then the iPhone 9 will not come with a wireless charging capability. That entails the Apple iPhone 9 may have some features which are different from the iPhone 8. Nevertheless, it could have some of the iPhone X’s features. This is according to unnamed supply chain sources in China, claiming that Apple will launch a lower-end handset in 2018, which is codenamed Hangzhou. The handset will be equipped with iPhone X features including a Face ID scanner and OLED display. Apple’s alleged aim to deliver lower cost handsets in China is a way to boost its market share in the country where it trails behind the Chinese tech giant – Huawei.

In the hardware department, the iPhone 9 might sport a larger battery capacity of 2850 mAh and a bigger battery size, as the battery unit will be rectangle-shaped, not L-shaped, that is reminiscent of the iPhone 8 Plus. Hence, this large battery size leads to an increase in the device’s overall size in order to carry more capacity. When it comes to the RAM size, the iPhone 9 will come with a 3 GB of RAM much like the iPhone X. This suggests that the device might experience issues when running multiple background apps.

iPhone 9 Release Date and Price

The latest rumors on the Apple iPhone 9 suggest that it will be lower in cost than the iPhone X but it’s still going to be expensive. The iPhone 9 price in Philippines is estimated at around PHP 37000 – PHP 42000. With that, it would put the iPhone 9 in a lower price bracket than the iPhone X yet at a similar price point to the iPhone 8.

As for the iPhone 9 release date in Philippines, it is expected to be launched in September this year - much like other Apple devices with typical September release dates like the iPhone 6, iPhone 7, and more.
