iPhone 9 Still On Course For Release In First Half Of 2020, Claims Kuo

We’ve been hearing various rumors pointing to a 2020 release window for the iPhone 9 in recent months and with the current coronavirus situation in China, there had been some concern that the announcement may be delayed. That’s not at all the case, according to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.

This comes after MacRumors got its hands on a research note by Kuo, with the analyst saying that Apple is still on course for an announcement in the first half of 2020 despite recent events. The closure of Foxconn plants thanks to the coronavirus outbreak was thought to potentially have delayed things. But Kuo says not.

The analyst mentioned the release window in passing as he was speaking about the iPhone 9’s camera. The research note mentioned that the device won’t include a 7P camera lens. That means the lens won’t have seven elements.

Because Apple expects that the new ‌iPhone‌ SE2 released in 1H20 will not use a 7P lens, it will not help the 7P lens shipment momentum.

This news shouldn’t be all that surprising, though. The iPhone 9 is expected to look very similar to the outgoing iPhone 8, so similar camera specifications make plenty of sense. The phone won’t use the iPhone 8’s processor, though, with the current A13 set to power Apple’s new budget iPhone.
