In the great family of iPhone, it is the one that was missing. Expected in 2017, the iPhone 9 had been zapped, Apple moving directly from the iPhone 8 to the iPhone X, then to the iPhone 11 in 2019. Eventually, the iPhone 9 could end up arriving in this month of April, after its working name was iPhone SE 2020 for a long time.

Since Apple launched the revolutionary iPhone line in 2007, it’s easy to know what the next model will be called. It is enough to have yourself counted. We thus knew the iPhone 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and then … the iPhone X; Hey, wouldn’t there be one missing?

To believe that Apple wanted to play it Star wars, who first released episodes 4, 5 and 6, before doing 1, 2 and 3, and finally ended up with 7, 8, and 9. Fortunately, to put things in order, we explained to you in which order to watch them to appreciate them (the Star wars, not iPhones). But in 2020, Apple could do even more complicated, releasing its iPhone 9 … between the 11th and the 12th. And while all the rumors announced that the phone in question was to be called iPhone SE 2020. How is it? did we get there? As for Star wars, there is a logical explanation …

For months, rumors had circulated about the release of a new iPhone at a lower price, on the same model as the iPhone SE, released in 2016. With a price around 500 euros, a few hundred less than the most recent iPhone 11 (except in case of super promotion, like the one in progress at SFR), this new model would thus be affordable for a greater number of people. And his name was all found; the iPhone SE 2020. Except that it would be too simple …

iPhone 9 or iPhone SE 2020: response on April 15?

Expected for spring 2020 according to the specialized press, its design would be based on that of the iPhone 8, but the device would integrate the A13 chip, the same as that available to the iPhone 11, and whose power is equivalent to that of a PC processor. A meeting between two generations which would have inspired Apple to fill the hole in its numbering, and therefore to baptize this model the iPhone 9. But once again, this name is only a rumor, and the answer could finally arrive earlier than expected…

It would therefore be expected to present this new “low cost” model (we are talking about a price around 539 euros) from April 15, for marketing from the 22 of the same month. In a few days, we should therefore know if the iPhone 9 will finally exist, in 2020, or if it will definitely be zapped from the iPhone family, if the new kid is called SE 2020, or iPhone SE 2 …

While waiting for this revelation, you can find all the iPhone on the SFR online store.
