The iPhone 9 looks set to launch in the near future, finally bringing the cheap iPhone that many have been waiting for since the (iPhone SE was unveiled back in .
The new, lower-cost handset from Apple is supposed to be launching on March but with the recent coronavirus outbreak that date might need to shift. We’re still waiting on more information Regarding the iPhone 9, explaining what kind of features it might be bringing, but we’ve started to see the rumors start to appear with greater frequency, so it looks pretty likely we’ll see the cheap iPhone launch in the next month or two (as long as Apple can actually make the phones).

That means starting at $ 449 (probably £ , AU $ 750 given Apple pricing conventions), according to the findings for TF Securities – and reiterated again by Kuo later . however, in the cost of high-end phones was about half as much as it is today – the (Samsung Galaxy S) (Ultra launched for a maximum of $ , so to see a smartphone being unveiled for just under $ (seems rather novel.) Whether that (is
Fast forward to the impending launch and we’re expecting something much larger – it doesn’t really feel like the same sort of special edition, does it?
