On March 27, Jon Prosser, a well-known leaker, recently announced to the public on his Twitter that the iPhone 9 series is coming soon. At the same time, he also revealed on Twitter that the economic pressure caused by the epidemic was an important factor in Apple's choice to release the iPhone 9 in April.
According to the current information disclosed by Apple, the estimated price of the upcoming iPhone 9 is between 3,000 and 4,000 yuan (USD $571) , and it will have a home physical key and an LCD screen with a resolution of about 4.7 inches and 720P.
It is worth mentioning that the iPhone 9 series will be equipped with the same A13 Bionic chip as in the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro. Therefore, although the screen size is slightly different from the iPhone 11 series, the iPhone 9 is in terms of system and performance. On an equal footing with the iPhone 11, many users who want to experience the iPhone 11 series but are discouraged by the price can consider this phone. If someone is not satisfied with the iPhone 9's smaller screen, Apple also offers the iPhone 9 Plus with a larger screen as an alternative.
Recently, according to data provided by the market research agency Strategy Analytics, it is known that Apple ’s shipments have fallen 36% month-on-month under the influence of the epidemic during January to February. In addition, the suspension of several major Apple foundries including Foxconn in China has affected Apple ’s product capacity. Therefore, if the company ’s production capacity has not been restored, the number of iPhone 9 series releases may be much less than in the past. Friends who want to buy need to be prepared in advance.
