While Apple may choose to call it the iPhone 9, it will be, in fact, a successor to the iPhone SE.
Apple is known to be working on a 'less-expensive' iPhone for this year. Now latest reports indicate that the company may fill in the numerical naming gap between the iPhone 8 and iPhone X by calling the new model as the iPhone 9.
According to Cnet, the iPhone 9 is speculated to appear the same as the iPhone 8 with a smaller 4.7-inch LCD screen but run the newer A13 Bionic chip.
While Apple may choose to call it the iPhone 9, it will be, in fact, a successor to the iPhone SE and feature unexciting single cameras which will still be capable of portrait mode using a software.
In terms of pricing, Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicts the iPhone 9 or iPhone SE 2 to cost USD 399 for the base model.
