There have been several reports on a new low-cost iPhone 9/iPhone SE 2 which was expected to launch this month. Turns out Apple is working on another iPhone possibly iPhone 9 Plus which would most likely debut with the iPhone 9.

9to5Mac found several details of an iPhone 9 Plus along with the iPhone 9 on iOS 14 code. Both the iPhone 9 and iPhone 9 Plus will run on the A13 Bionic chipset. The report also reveals the new iPhones will indeed house a Home button which was discontinued after the iPhone 8 series. With a Home button, the iPhone 9 and iPhone 9 Plus will support Touch ID for biometric authentication. Face ID will be one premium feature the new iPhones will lack.

But the iPhone 9 series will be able to use Apple Pay, scan NFC tags in the background and come with the Express Transit feature as well. These features are available on the iPhone XS and above. There’s no mention of the screen size of the iPhone 9 Plus although we know it will be bigger than the iPhone 9.

As for the iPhone 9 or iPhone SE 2, it has been rumoured to feature a 4.7-inch LCD display. Apple could launch it in two storage variants of 64GB and 128GB. The low-cost iPhone is also expected to be priced around $399 (Rs 28,500 approx) which is the same price the iPhone SE launched at.

The iPhone SE 2 was first expected to launch at Apple’s annual March event which was reportedly cancelled due to coronavirus fears. Apple is still rumoured to unveil a new MacBook and iPad Pro this week.

If Apple launched a foldable iPhone, this is how it might look like

Published

on

Anything Apple launches, the world goes gaga about it. That’s because the company has over the years, maintained the buzz and has not lost its popularity and uniqueness among millions of Android smartphones. And since there’s a who lot of hype around flip or foldable form factor designs in Android these days, what happens if Apple launches a flip style iPhone? Don’t worry, the company is not launching it now or anytime soon. However, one of the Instagram users made a concept video of “iPhone 12 Flip” and it looks as beautiful as it can get.

The short video posted by a verified user “bad.not.bad” shows the folded concept iPhone that has half the thickness of Samsung Galaxy Flip with a larger screen on the outside than the foldable Moto Razr. We can see the motion sensors waking up the outer screen, showing the time along with the torch and camera icons on one side. These are also the same icons that you see nowadays in an iPhone’s lock screen. On the other side of the outer display you see a slider, which when you swiping up, unfolds the iPhone into a full-fledged one. This can also be a nifty way to unfold a handset using one hand.

My vision of iPhone 12 Flip📱

A post shared by Iskander Utebayev (@bat.not.bad) on

Once unfolded, the unannounced ‘iPhone 12 Flip’ looks slimmer than the current iPhones. However, there’s no notch with equal bezels on all the sides, something we can only imagine for now. The outer screen however, has a notch for FaceID and housing other sensors. Also, the user opens his Instagram account and folds the iPhone without closing the app. As a result, the app is shown on the outer screen. Not bad right?

Of course, this is a concept phone and this is nowhere close to reality as well. However, looking at the device, it surely makes one want it.

The Galaxy Z Flip uses the industry’s first ultrathin glass cover on top of the OLED screen, making it more durable and scratch-resistant compared with plastic displays.

It comes with a 6.7-inch foldable main display and a 1.1-inch cover display on the front of the handset that allows users to check the time and notifications.
