It's worth noting that many smartphone companies have deferred their official launches as the big smartphone markets around the world including India are grappling with the Covid-19 pandemic. As far as Apple goes, the company has reportedly contemplated delaying its iPhone 12 flagship series by up to three months.
Apple's iPhone SE successor has already been leaked multiple times. The phone is said to be based on the iPhone 8 series but with the latest features and specifications.
According to reports, Apple iPhone 9 will have a 4.7-inch display. The phone is likely to have the TouchID, the fingerprint sensor which was replaced by Apple with FaceID since iPhone X.
The phone is said to come with A13 Bionic chipset that is coupled with either 64GB or 128GB storage space.
