What was once an idea is soon to become a reality, as Apple gets ready to launch its brand new iPhone model, the iPhone 9! Rumor has it, the latest iPhone model will hit the markets sometime in later in April. The iPhone 9 has been a long-due project for the tech mogul and after some delays, is still scheduled for release later this month.
Interestingly enough, there is also the anticipated talk of Apple launching the brand newiPhone SE 2. Although still unclear, some sources believe that the iPhone SE 2 will actually be presented as the iPhone 9, whereas others speculate that Apple could, indeed, release two separate phones.
As you know, the first iPhone SE was initially released in 2016 along with the launch of the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus. Back then and even now, the model remains quite popular, mostly due to its four-inch touchscreen, which makes the design compact and practical, especially when compared to the iPhone 6s and iPhone 7.
Another reason why we are so looking forward to the launch of the iPhone SE 2 is cost versus performance. The iPhone 9 is not just a high-performing device, but also comes at a very reasonable price. As you can guess, this makes the device quite popular among Apple users.
So, we like to think of it as the universal iPhone favorite.
Can We Get Into the Specifics?
Of course, there were many speculations about the iPhone SE, among which was the talk of an edge-to-edge display. But, even performance-wise, Apple decided to derail from its known pattern and has other plans for the device. Namely, the new iPhone SE 2 will use a fingerprint ID scanner and will include authenticated security Apple apps, such as mobile banking. From what we’ve heard, the phone is also rumored to include 64GB of in-built storage, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, GPS, as well as Lightning connector. In addition, the phone will likely come with accelerometer-boosted sensors, ambient light sensor, proximity sensor, and compass.
In terms of price, we heard it through the grapevine that it should reach somewhere around $399, which makes an excellent value for your money.
What about the Coronavirus Concerns?
Despite pushing for release, things are becoming complicated for Apple, as a result of the recent coronavirus outbreak. According to whispers, the magnitude of the coronavirus could actually reduce Apple’s sales. Sadly, this also means that Apple might postpone the mass production of the iPhone 9. Initially, Apple announced it would present the iPhone SE 2 by the end of March, and launch it on the market, come April.
However, now Apple might be forced to halt the launch given most factories in China are now closed due to a national emergency state. Naturally, that makes the increased
production of the iPhone SE 2 more difficult and demanding, but Apple is yet to release a statement on the matter.
So, don’t get your hopes up just yet, but also don’t lose any hope as April is well on its way, and a great product is always worth the wait!
