Apple iPhone 9 (iPhone SE 2) What we know & What we expect
From the 3rd quarter of 2019, we are getting numerous leaks about Apple. Finally, all of the iPhone 9 (iPhone SE 2) rumors and leaks are coming to an end, the iPhone 9 will be available from this month-end (end of March 2020), the exact date is not clear. Note: the sources are unofficial but almost confirmed.
TF International Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo stated in October 2019: Apple will launch the more reasonably priced iPhone SE2 in 1Q20. The narrowing to the end of March maybe has to do something with the outbreak of coronavirus. The price is believed to be $399. (may vary, but not much, it will be more like a budget phone). Still, there is no confirmation about the naming, whether it will be iPhone 9 or iPhone SE 2 or maybe iPhone XE.
let us go through the leaked specs to know what we are waiting for
The iPhone 9 is likely to come up with the latest iOS 13.4 out of the box. Most likely to have the latest Apple A13 Bionic Chipset. Coupled with 2 GB or 3GB of RAM and internal storage of 64 GB/ 128 GB. A 12MP Rear Camera and a 7MP front selfie shooter. A 4.7-inch LCD Display, more like iPhone 8 design. A Single SIM slot Nano sim size. A 1960 or a 2100 mAh battery to juice things up. We have a high expectation for the Touch ID to come back to iPhone 9.

Release Date & Pricing?
It is likely to launch on Q1 2020 or maybe Q2 2020. Apple might be planning to add more users to its Apple ecosystem. By launching a budget phone the company would give its buyers a more affordable alternative.
We assume that the Pricing will be starting from $399. That’s roughly (28,400 Indian Rupee). Since it is going to be a budget device, The pricing can’t be that much higher.
