iPhone 9: Expected Specifications, Features, Design, Release Date, Price
iPhone 9 release date : Welcome to the ‘Mad About iPhone club’!! Well if you have stumble on this particular webpage, we are sure that you are as much mad about iPhones as we are. Just think, we aren’t sure about the specifications or release date of iPhone flagship that is all set to release this year, we are so obsessed that we hgave already started daydreaming about the probable specifications of the one that is going to be released next year. Call us mad, crazy or whichever adjective you find suitable, but that would not stop us from conjuring ideas about how iPhone 9 is going to look and feel like. And of course we thought about sharing it with all the iPhone lovers. So here is it:
The first of the rumors that’s in the air for quite some times is that Apple has already started rolling out the production process of these phones. Just like all other iPhones which were released or will be released soon, Apple is negotiating with different companies from all over the world to prepare different parts of the phone. Firstly, here are the tech upgrades that we can look forward to in iPhone 9.
iPhone 9 Features
This particular specification of an iPhone has been a hot topic of discussion since last year when techies started exploring about the probable features of flagship iPhone that will be released this year. Till iPhone 7 home button of the iPhones had fingerprint recognition technology with the help of which it was possible to unlock the phone. Tough we haven’t received any official report but experts are of the opinion that iPhone 8 will not have it anymore. So here how we see iPhone 9 Touch ID will look like. We see a iPhone 9 in 2018 without the tradition home button, that will enhance the overall screen size of iPhone 9. The display in itself will have the capability to detect the fingerprint of the individual user. A patent was submitted by Apple back in 2013 which talks about a display having a layer for finger print sensing. Moreover, this futuristic finger print sensing display is probably going to support multi users in a single device. Therefore, an individual can register about two to three finger prints in a single device and when the phone is unlocked using a particular finger print, they are going to get access to apps set by the main user. This is just one of its functionality. It may have more. Thus your privacy won’t be at stake even when multiple people are using it.
Super fast internet connection is one thing that all users are looking forward to. Infact, the faster is it the better and more comfortable it is for the users. 4G network support is presently available with all phones, therefore we would not mind if iPhone 9 hits another benchmark by introducing the first ever 5G network compatible phones. Reporters of Business Insiders have confirmed that Apple is gathering all the data necessary for 5G testing from the receiver and transmitters end. So let us hope we get to feel a much faster network connecting in iPhone 9.
Already the iPhone 7 comes with IP67 certification that makes it resistant to dirt and water. But iPhone 9 is expected to come with much better water resisting capabilities, all thanks to a patent that was submitted by Apple in 2015. This patent speaks about hydrophobic modules that would be present in the speaker cavity and that would have the capability to spill out all the liquid that gets inside the phone by accident. All we see is a sturdier iPhone 9 which is definitely a good news.
Much More Sensitive Phone
We must admit that our iPhones have become super sensitive. Whether it is our pocket, bag or under our pillow, it has become really jumpy thanks to all the objects that keep teasing it. We might get to see a solution to this particular problem in iPhone 9 which is expected to come with a button that comes with a sensor and will have the capability to judge whether it is a human finger touching it or any other object.
iPhone 9 is expected to come in two size variation and both are bigger than the size of iPhone 7 and most probably iPhone 8 as well. We have heard rumors about Apple signing deal with Samsung who is going to supply the OLED panels of about 5.28 inch and 6. 46 inch in the coming year. We will keep you updated as we get to hear more.
Gorilla or Sapphire Glass
All the latest iPhones come with tough gorilla glass screen and we must say that gorilla glass is very sturdy. However, the question that arises here is: Is there any chances of gorilla glass being replaced with sapphire glass? Sapphire glass is already in use in the Apple watch and it is tougher than the gorilla glass. Moreover, it is totally resistant to scratches. We recently came to hear that one of the old supply chains of Apple Foxconn has invested a lot of money to build a sapphire glass manufacturing plant in Taiwan. At the same time, we all know about Apple investing $200m in Corning, the company that supplies gorilla glass. So it is hard to tell whether iPhone 9 will come with gorilla or sapphire glass at this point of time. But even if it is with gorilla glass it will be a much more advanced version of the same from Corning that will be a perfect combo of strong scratch resistant glass.
This feature has long been in the wishlist of all iPhone lovers. They would love to have an iPhone with a screen in which they can view 3D images with their naked eyes. Let us hope we get to see this in iPhone 9.
We have been hoping Apple to introduce this feature in iPhone 8 and if not in iPhone 8, iPhone 9 for sure. At present iPhone users use Touch ID to unlock their phone, in the upcoming year we are expecting iPhone to come with such technologies that can recognize the users face as well as iris and unlock it. Recently, Digitimes has come up this news that Apple has signed a contract with Xintec, a Taiwan based company for supplying iris scanners for their next generation phone.
Detect Unauthorized Use
Apple submitted a patent in 2016 using which the iPhone will be able to detect any unauthorized users who will try to sabotage the phone. Whenever an unauthorized user tries to unlock the phone, the phone is going to record the fingerprint, photo or other such important data of the user and send it across to Apple’s server so that the user can track down the thief. However, this feature can be misused for a lot of unethical practices as well. So we are not really sure whether it will be introduced or not.
iPhone 7 has probably the best smartphone camera at present. It can take breathtaking pictures. However, we are expecting iPhone 9 to come with some improvements like users will have the option of clicking super resolution photos. In a patent submitted by Apple in 2014 the blueprint of super resolution was described. It stated that when the user switch on this particular mode, the camera will take photos of the same object from slightly different angles and then combine them together to form the super resolution photo. It might also introduce interchangeable lens in iPhone 9. With such advanced camera specifications you definitely would not need a DSLR anymore.
Battery life has been one of the most crucial things that iPhone users worry about. Though in the course of time Apple has persistently improved the battery of iPhone, but along with that it has also added many advanced components to drain the battery. So we expect iPhone 9 to come up with some serious improvement in this genre. There are a lot of buzzes about Apple researching in long range wireless charging through magnetic resonance or something more advanced. And though we didn’t receive any official report but there are rumors about Apple talking with more than one company that deals with wireless charging in long range.
There was also news about Apples tie up with LG for manufacturing the batteries of iPhone 9. LG is supposedly investing a lot for manufacturing L shaped batteries that will be ready in the first half of 2018 which is perfect for rolling out the iPhone 9 in due time. In iPhone 9 Apple is rumored to have changed the shape of the battery as it helping creating much needed space and help to charge at a much faster pace.
At present most cell phones are powered by Lithium ion batteries. We are expecting a change over to lithium oxygen batteries which are much more powerful than the present one. But researchers are still working on it. We hope to see it in iPhone 9.
Apple has been always committed towards creating a greener earth. And this principle got transcended when it submitted a patent in 2015 that had a blueprint of solar batteries being placed under the screen of the phone that will help the phone to get charged in exposed sunlight and keep the phone going. We hope to see this feature in iPhone 9.
