The iPhone 9, which is expected to launch in March, is likely to come with a 4.7-inch display that is coupled with an iPhone 8-like design. The phone is expected to ditch the Face ID in favour of the fingerprint scanner that is housed inside the phone's home button. The new report says that while Apple will stick to a 4.7-inch display, it will move the fingerprint sensor to the side, which in turn would give more screen space to the users.
