    iPhone 9 aka iPhone SE 2 launch on April 15: Expected India price, specs, design and other key details

    Apple iPhone 9 is coming soon. Or will it be called iPhone SE 2? Whatever the name, rumors suggest that the iPhone 9 will be launched on April 15 and here is everything we know about it so far, including its expected price.

    HIGHLIGHTS

    • The Apple iPhone 9 aka iPhone SE 2 is expected to be launched on April 15
    • The iPhone 9 is likely to have a design similar to that of the iPhone 8.
    • The iPhone 9 is likely to cost less than the iPhone 11 at its expected price of $399.
    Rumours are coming thick and fast. Just yesterday there was a rumour, attributed to an Apple analyst that the iPhone 9 aka iPhone SE 2 is going to cost around $399 (around Rs 30,000). Apple is expected to launch this cheaper iPhone called the iPhone 9 aka iPhone SE 2 on April 15. But so far rumours are all we have and in the past, they didn’t prove to be accurate.

    Earlier, there was a rumour that the iPhone 9 will be launched in March. Then it became the launch of March 31. That date came and went. Rumours then hinted that the launch will be on April 5. No. Didn’t happen. Now, the latest reports suggest that the iPhone 9 will be launched on April 15.

    Then there are speculations about the name. Is it going to be called the iPhone 9? We are not sure. It could be called the iPhone SE 2. Or Apple may call it just the iPhone SE (2020 generation), info leaked by case makers suggests.

    So, April 15 as the launch date of the iPhone 9… well, we will see. Only a week to go now. But until then, let’s take a look back at all the rumours and tell you about the iPhone 9 price, specs, design and other key details. The iPhone 9 was recently listed on Chinese e-commerce website JD.com and that hints the phone is on its way to the market.

    — First, how many iPhone 9 variants? Speculations suggest that Apple may launch not one but two phones under the iPhone 9 series–the iPhone 9 and iPhone 9 plus. The iPhone 9 will likely have a screen size of 4.7 inches and the iPhone 9 Plus may come with a 5.4-inch screen.

    — The iPhone 9 aka iPhone SE is rumored to be priced around $399, which is roughly around Rs 30,000. But that is a direct conversion from dollar to rupees. And we know that Apple doesn’t do that. Apple marks up the dollar in relation to rupees at a premium, say something like Rs 90 for one dollar. This means if the global price of the iPhone 9 is $399, in India the phone might cost around Rs 36,000 to Rs 40,000. Even at this price, expect iPhone 9 to challenge the likes of Samsung, OnePlus and others.

    — The iPhone 9 is speculated to house an A13 Bionic chip under the hood. The A13 is Apple’s latest chipset, which is found in Apple’s newest series of iPhones such as the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max. This means the iPhone 9 is likely to be a very fast phone.

    — Rumours suggest that the iPhone 9 will look similar to the iPhone 8. That’s not a bad thing, considering the iPhone 8 is a well-designed phone.

    — The iPhone 9 may come in three storage variant options including 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB, as per reports

    — Coming to the looks and size the iPhone 9 might look similar to Apple’s previous phones—the Apple iPhone 7 and iPhone 8. The Apple iPhone 9 is rumoured to feature a 4.7-inch LCD display and might bring back the Touch ID.

    — In terms of the camera, Apple iPhone will reportedly flaunt a 12-megapixel single rear camera unlike the latest series of iPhones that have dual and triple rear camera setups.
