The awaited successor, iPhone 9, which is likely to launch next month has been a much-awaited refresh for the iPhone SE, launched back in 2016. Several rumours and leaks were floating around for the past couple of years suggesting iPhone SE 2 in the works, and earlier reports have also been suggesting Apple had cancelled those plans altogether. Regardless, the iPhone SE successor had also been in the news fro the past few months and reports suggested that Apple would go with it’s successful and most loved iPhone 8 design, which has been the standard from the refreshed iPhone 6 design since it’s launch.

Following the footprints of the predecessor, the iPhone 9 could also be bringing up the top-of-the-line specifications, such as the A13 Bionic processor, which powered the iPhone 11 series hosted in an iPhone 8 depiction. However, there could be a lot of trade-offs to make it a cost-effective iPhone by dropping other gold features from Apple including OLED displays, multiple cameras and FaceID as well.
