iPhone 9 – everything you need to know

iPhone 9 – everything you need to know

2020 is going to be an awesome year. Amidst predictions of self-driving cars and flying cars and even synthetic brains, one prediction that has a very good chance of coming true is that of the iPhones flagship phone of the year- iPhone 9.  Yes, we know it’s too early to say anything about iPhone 9 with iPhone 8 being only in the initial stages of development, and still being a rumor, but in comparison to synthetic brains that will function like a human computer, predictions about iPhone 9 are quite a reliable one. And we have our hopes high with this one and why shouldn’t we get our hopes high, after all, with rumors flying about how it will be one of its kind with a bendable screen, transparent display and holograms and all that, it’s quite natural for us tech enthusiasts. So much in a single smart phone! It’s definitely going to be the smart phone of the future. And oh how we are looking forward to it! These three years are going to be a long-long time. Someone, please teach me how to time travel. Please.

Most of what we know is mere assumptions and based on rumors flowing throughout the internet. We are not saying that we are a hundred percent sure, but definitely very high chances are there that you will see 2020 flagship iPhone with all these features. Apple is known for releasing its flagship phones every year in two variants. This year, for example, we had the recently launched iPhone 7 and are eagerly waiting for its variant iPhone 7S to be released in September of this year, similarly, we are expecting iPhone 8 and its variant iPhone 8S in the year 2018 and 2019. So, naturally, we expect iPhone 9 and its variant iPhone 9S to be launched in the year 2020. So while we wait for the most awaited the year 2020, let’s have a look at what we are expecting out of our future phone iPhone 9.

iPhone 9 display:

With the recent launch of apple’s iPhone 7, it is evident that Apple will not increase its display size anytime soon. It is also to note that increasing the display size to more than 6.5 would land the phone in the tablet category which, of course, Apple wouldn’t want. So from apple’s iPhone 9, we are expecting a screen display of 5.5 inches with a variant that might go up to 6 inches, not more than that. With paper thin OLED screens this will be a revolutionary phone and most probably the first smart phone which can bend. Yes, you heard that right, a bendable display is awaiting you in the near future. So you can bend it like Beckham the way it suits you, undoubtedly the most flexible phone ever!

Apple is known for its innovations and we are sure the design for apple’s iPhone 9 is going to be very innovative and stunning. iPhone 9 will most probably have more screen to body ratio and curved edges. It may feature the popular AMOLED display with an ultra slim screen with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels or probably more than that.

Recent rumors cue that we might even get a completely bezel-less display with a curved body which would fit perfectly in your palm. Apple is currently working on this idea of having more screen to body ratio and is planning to go completely bezel-less! It won’t even have the classic home button and would be devoid of any bezels. Moreover, by 2020 Apple is planning on bringing back the glass body which we have earlier seen in iPhone 4, the difference being back then, glass body was more vulnerable than being beautiful. It could easily be cracked or damaged with a single hit, but now that we have excellent technology the glass body will build strong and sturdy. Making sure it’s durable and not just beautiful to look at kept safely in the display at your home. Some sources suggest that Apple is going to use Graphene in their 2020’s flagship smart phone iPhone 9. Now, Graphene is a carbon component which is basically derived from the allotrope of carbon, graphite. It is the thinnest substance known to man, and also quite durable. It is also a good conductor of electricity as we all know graphite is. This material has the potential to make light, flexible, thin and sturdy display screens. It also helps in managing heat and conducting properties besides reinforcing screen’s strength.

The glass screen will be both hydrophobic and oleophobic, which means not only your phone would be waterproof but it would also repel oil, dust, and dirt off the screen. These screens will keep those nasty fingerprints at bay as oleophobic coating helps repel the natural oil that our skin secretes when touching the screen. The glass will be ion-strengthened in which the strength of the glass is increased manifolds by heating it and channelizing sodium-potassium transport within the glass. Sodium ions are exchanged with bigger potassium ions which owe the glass its incredible strength. So go swimming without worrying about damaging your phone, go crazy dancing like there’s no tomorrow, let your phone slid off a little because you know too well that your smart phone isn’t that easy to get damaged. iPhone 9 is going to be smart, flexible and strong. This is going to be one of its kind, practically magic.

Camera:

The camera of iPhone is always a step ahead of all its rival smart phone brands. iPhone 7 came with superb front and back cameras. The front camera of iPhone 7 being 4MP while a 12MP back camera with amazing features like dual lenses and optical image stabilization made iPhone 7 much loved smart phone by the socially active people who love to capture even the smallest of moments. In the year 2020, we are expecting iPhone 9 to come with 14MP back camera and 8MP front camera! Now that’s something not only the socially active but everyone, in general, would love to have. Apple never compromises with its camera quality. iPhone 9 is definitely going to have the best of image quality; some rumors even say that the quality will be like a proper DSLR picture quality. It may also feature a light splitter digital camera which will basically have not one but three image sensors, a quality which currently only high-end video cameras have. So the colors are much more accurate and the image quality is superb. With optical image stabilization you can have super-resolution photos and can take photos even in nights or where there is low light, so it’s definitely a BIG YES for the night owls out there. Additionally, the camera will have phase detection autofocus, optical zoom, face detector or smile detector to capture your beautiful happy smile, geo-tagging so you can post your whereabouts and let the world know where you are, HDR effect and panorama as well. With dual lenses and great aperture, you will be able to capture a great picture effortlessly. It will also feature an Octa-LED flash with more than 50% light output. It may even have a dual flash for the front camera as well. With all these features and hopefully more, iPhone 9 is going to be the revolutionary phone of the year 2020. Every tech enthusiast is excited about it, and with features like these I think it is right to do so.

It is also highly expected that iPhone is going to improve augmented reality which would be better, rich and easy to access. It would be more accurate and customizable. It is predicted that by 2020 we might as well get to enable holography as well. Holograms are 3-D images formed when light beams coming from a coherent source, such as a laser, interferences. This is what we have been seeing in movies so far. Isn’t that just awesome? We are so excited about it!

Battery:

Battery life has always been a concern for iPhone users. In the coming years, however, we will see some major developments in Apples iPhone’s battery life. New technologies like long range wireless charging will be enabled in Apples’ upcoming flagship phones. For wireless charging these days you have to place the iPhone on the charging mat, that is a short range of contact is necessary. But in upcoming years Apple is working on wireless charging that is long ranged of approximately 1 meter, using near-field magnetic resonance. It is also speculated that Apple may use lithium-air batteries for their next flagships smart phones. Lithium-air batteries offer as much as 5 times more battery lifetime than the lithium ion batteries used these days in many smart phones. So the capacity and the efficiency of batteries are expected to rise up. Motion charging is also on the row, this technology has been used in several watches up to now, rumor has it that Apple may include this technology in their smart phones as well. Motion charging uses mechanical energy from our body to charge up a battery, so running won’t just help you stay fit but also charge your phones.

Another technology that may be included in iPhone 9 is the solar charging technology. As the name suggests, this would include using the sun’s rays as a source for charging your phone. It’s good to know that Apple is using more environment- friendly technologies to enhance their smart phones. It is also rumored that Apple is working on super capacitor batteries that will charge in mere seconds and last for over a week. Now isn’t that something totally mind blowing?

Security:

Fingerprint sensors and iris sensors are rolling quite well in the tech market these days.  You can easily unlock your iPhone using your fingerprints because of the touch ID sensor. Since fingerprints are unique for a person and no two different people have the same fingerprints, except for identical twins, of course, this helps you to be the only person who can unlock your device. Iris scanner, however, is one step ahead of fingerprints. With this and face detection, your eyes and your face become your password, it’s almost as if your smart phone recognizes you when you look at it. this ensures your phone’s security and safety. This is also quite futuristic in its own way. We love iris scanners!

Apple has also designed a clever way of catching thieves. It uses biometric capture for any unauthorized activity on your phone. It will get easier to catch whoever tries to get away with your precious smart phone.

According to some rumors, Apple may also incorporate a feature in its smart phone that could detect a physical attack or accidents and call either assigned numbers or the local 999 numbers automatically. It uses a special hardware and software combination that allows emergency services to get activated on your iPhone. This will also use GPS to detect the location of the user. In this way, iPhone will act as a lifesaver and may prevent many casualties that may occur. Of course, there will be warnings in case a false alarm is set off. Like a prompt message or a timer which will allow the user to set it off.

5G:

People are thrilled with the 4G LTE, the speed it delivers and how effective it is, blows their mind. Now, what do you think would happen, if even a better version is released? Yes, you’re right, they will go crazy with excitement! We have been hearing all kinds of rumors from around the web about the introduction of 5G in the upcoming years. 5G will deliver faster internet connections, right now there are no standards for this, but a lot of companies including Apple and its biggest rival company Samsung are working on it. 5G will include improved features like reduced latency and faster transfer speeds.

Storage:

Apple’s iPhone 9 is expected to come in 32GB, 64GB, 128GB and 256GB variants with 4GB RAM which is a lot of memory in your hands. You can store loads of pictures, music, and videos in your phone and the phone will work perfectly fine without crashing. However, like every apple’s iPhones we are not expecting expandable memory, therefore no memory slot in the iPhone 9.

Processor and RAM:

With the recent launch of iPhone 7 with the A10 Fusion Dual-core processor, it is obvious that iPhone 8 will come out with the advanced A11 Quad core fusion processor, following the trend the apple’s 2020 flagship smart phone iPhone 9 is definitely going to have Octa core processor which is even better than the A10 dual core and A11 Quad core fusion processors that iPhone 7 just got launched with and iPhone 8 most probably will get in 2018. This will be an A12 Octa core processor, which means, it will deliver performance improvements and ensure a better, powerful and efficient phone in your hands. It will bring increased performance and efficient battery life as well. A better AR performance which will be accessible and efficient will be seen with these features.

 

Siri:

The iPhone 9 may feature an improved version of Siri with better functionality. The virtual assistant is definitely going to be even better and smarter. Although details are not known about the exact improvements that Siri might feature, it is for sure that it will be more enhanced. We love Siri the way it is now, the ability to respond to even sarcastic remarks and jokes is something we love about Siri. With an even improved version, I sure Siri would be the only one we would want to talk to all day long.

Speakers:

iPhone 9 will feature stereo speakers just like iPhone 7 has. This year Apple launched iPhone 7 with stereo speakers on the top and on the bottom as well to enhance the stereo effect and improve a quality of the sound. iPhone 9 is going to follow suite and come with stereo speakers, one at the top and another one at the bottom as well as increased dynamic range. The sound quality would be better and more powerful than ever!

Slim body with no head phone jack:

Apple’s decision to get rid of head phone jack allowed the body to go slimmer than ever before and also boost its battery life. The headphone jack has been replaced with lightning port-based connectors which can easily plug in into the smart phone’s charging port. This has helped free a lot of space for other components and thereby also helped to boost the battery life.

Other features:

iPhone 9 will also have the classic necessities. Sensors like a compass, magnetometer, barometer, accelerometer, gyroscope, ambient light sensor and proximity sensors will be there. It will come in 5 colors just like this year’s flagship iPhone 7, including Jet Black, Black, Gold, Rose Gold, and Silver.

According to multiple rumors, by 2020, iPhone 9 may come with a peculiar feature of self-healing screens. Researchers are reportedly working on a material that will have the potential to heal itself if damaged. This material will have a special chemical property where ions if torn apart, will be able to strongly attract each other via a special type of bond called ion-dipole interaction. This will be the first-ever material that will be conductive to electricity with self-healing properties. Now, this is definitely magical. Besides this, the phone will notify you if they are cracked. Now, umm how is that possible? That’s just absurd, right? Only that it isn’t. These phones will be able to detect any crack on the screen and notify the user about it. we don’t know what exactly is the method of assessing that, but we do know that it’s possible that you will get such features by 2020. Moreover, the screen will be able to absorb impacts because of a new visco-elastic material that Apple is currently working on. So, Apple is undoubtedly planning on making its smart phone the best you can ever ask for, it will be strong, efficient and durable.

iPhone 9 release date:

iPhone 7 just got launched in 2017, we are expecting its variant iPhone plus by September of the same. The next iteration, iPhone 8 will probably come between 2018 – 2019, iPhone 9 will most probably follow suit and launch the next iteration iPhone 9 in the year 2020. This is also because iPhone 9 is coming with many new innovative and exciting features that will take some time to develop. It is still early so say exactly when it will get released but the probability is that we will get to see it by 2020. Hoping that there would be no delays and supply shortages this is the best we can guess.

 

iPhone 9 price:

According to several rumors, iPhone 9 could be the most expensive smart phone that Apple would produce. And it isn’t surprising considering the facts that there are going to be several mind-blowing features like long range charging, OLED Display, A12 octa-core fusion processor, 3D touch, Holograms, self-healing screens and much more. Chances are that iPhone 9 will cross the $1000 dollar mark and go beyond it. The higher end model that is 256GB variant may even reach $1300! Now, we know that’s A LOT! But, e simply can’t ignore the fact that quality comes at a price.

These, however, are not the facts and largely based on rumors, so we may be wrong, but there is still a chance that we are not. Considering that there are multiple rumors stating the same and many rumors from trusted sources.

To conclude, 2020 is going to be an awesome year! And iPhone 9 an awesome smart phone.  Apple has always been a trendsetter and we just can’t wait for their 2020’s flagship phone – the iPhone 9.
