Alleged iPhone 9 handled on video, showing an old school design

19 February 2020
The authenticity of the video is not certain, however, as it shows a phone with squared off sides, unlike the rounded design seen in renders.

I want the Apple phone to help me with my studies and other

That is just an iPhone 8 with frame and back mod, the fact that this is not an iPhone 9, GSMArena should have delete this news

Nice to see a cheap iPhone. I'll surely buy one and use an IOS smartphone for once. Hopefully it will have wireless charging.

Expect big changes

And no wonder Jony Ive wants to leave Apple. Always recycling an old design.

The new Xperia 1 II looks much, much better than this shitty phone. I would probably dump my iPhone 8 Plus and use iPad only.

Anonymous, 20 Feb 2020You're wrong and self centered. Yes large phones sell well.... moreNothing I said sounds self-centered, you obviously don't know the meaning of that. You can say "many many people" but do you have statistics and hard numbers to back up that they want smaller phones? Because I do have stats on how large people want their phones(hint: it's not the smaller display sizes).

The iPhone 9 will sell because of cost and iOS, not size and that's an unmovable fact. Get over it and move on from tiny phones.

They all worth more than what they look from your eyes! Their behavior might mimic poor people but they have more than what appears in their Bank Accounts, Investment portfolios etc....if they choose to liquidate their assets their worth more than what Chineese Per Capita.....

Kriegsherr, 21 Feb 2020kinda pissed of on my S10e because it overheats. I dont pla... moreI never had heating issues with it, and neither did 2 of my friends who have it too, but one coworker did had heating issues and he replaced his phone within just a few days.

Only times my S10e gets warm are 4K video recording and software updates.

Anonymous, 21 Feb 2020Not really. It will sell phenomenally well because it's new... moreIndia and China are both large countries and have big economy but maybe china is not as poor as India. if you look at their per capita income you would get the facts checked. China is considered a middle income country while India is considered as poor in most of the charts.

Dont blame me. I am just quoting the stats from economic forums. I dont live in either of the countries. needless to say that per capita income defines the real condition of lives of the citizens of a country, not the economy size.

AverageUser, 21 Feb 2020I feel you my brother...kinda pissed of on my S10e because it overheats. I dont play games on my phone, dont shoot 4K video either. the phone is smooth but it gets warm frequently. my 6s plus ( a 4 year old phone) still doesnt get warm that much. exynos is really bad. as long as samsung provides europe with exynos, I am never gonna buy their phone.
That is why iphone is a good choice. a little restrictive OS but you get a product with higher quality and reliability.

  • China is not poor

Anonymous, 20 Feb 2020No, you are wrong. iPhone 11 Pro , or Xs, or X aren't much... moreThe iPhone 8/7/6S/6 body (approx., as there are slight differences between them) is significantly shorter, noticeably narrower, and slightly thinner, differences that are obvious when held. As an iPhone X owner, I *wish* the 11 Pro/Xs/X had the dimensions of those.

It's false, unfortunately. But hey, it's a very cool aftermarket iPhone 8 housing. Just like one of the old iPhone SE2 "leaks" was also an aftermarket housing. Here's the link to this one:

Here's also a video of the housing from January, direct from the maker: https://twitter.com/i/web/status/1212745274881265664]

Alex 94, 19 Feb 2020It will not. Who want 2015 design in 2020? Nobody. With 18:... moreThis is 2007 design, nowhere closer to 2015 ! How these guys manipulates Value proposition through outdated design! As a iPhone 11 user it is embarrassing to see the newer models coming with archaic design in 2020! $400 is not cheap for the design!
