AMOLED Design and Display:
Apple is going to include AMOLED display on any mobile phone except its new iPhone X. It is also expected that the new generation Apple iPhones will include impressive display technology with better protection. The quality, of course, will be in major consideration.
The resolution of the model is still unknown, but with 6.1’’ display, you will get pixel density up to 330 pixels per inch. While on the other hand, the iPhone XI could offer 458ppi or more pixel density, and that it could have 3GB of RAM.
On the other hand, consumers will like to see the bright and sharp colors and deep blacks that only this type of display screen can offer to come to the next iPhone handset, namely the iPhone 9.
But while the Apple iPhone 9 smartphone might lack few features of iPhone 8, it could well follow few from Apple iPhone X, as many sources have said that a lower price variant will offer Face ID, though they also said it might have an OLED screen, according to the recent rumours.
Home Button Placement:
If you purchase an iPhone X, you will get a glimpse into home button-less future by Apple. After some adjustment time, most will forget about the trusty button absence inside the iPhone X, but it would be great to say Goodbye if Apple kept the home button for one last appearance in its upcoming iPhone 9.
Just like the home button, the iPhone X also lost Touch ID. This is something we were not expecting. While Face ID works well, you may also land in situations where a fingerprint scanner will surely be more productive. We don't mind if the manufacturer pops it on the back, but what we would really love to see if this embedded in the display itself.
Apple A12 chip:
Apple is going to introduce custom-built chip for the iPhone 9. This chipset is probably going to be named Apple A12, and will likely provide performance and battery life upgradation.
The current Apple A11 Bionic chip had two powerful cores that were 25 percent faster than the previous Apple A10 Fusion. And the four high-efficiency cores are up to 70 percent faster than the A10’s power-sipping cores.
Dual Rear-facing cameras:
The iPhone 9 mobile phone will include a set of back cameras that much is almost certain. However, as the brand has shown in the past few years, Apple will only bring it in the plus size variant, the iPhone 9 Plus.
Controlling portrait lighting and capturing photos with depth is fantastic to have on your smartphone as a DSLR replacement. And as Apple continues to pour its efforts into these up-to-date and advanced features, it would be wise to integrate the results from its broad range of mobile devices moving forward.
Although there is not any confirmed rumoured update about iPhone 9 battery capacity, but it is expected that iPhone 2018 will include a massive capacity battery.
This could comprise of a switch to a more efficient 7nm chip next year, which will surely be an efficient way of saving power. We can only hope that Apple strives to enhance battery life over computing raise in 2018. After all, who would not want a smartphone that remained three or more days through a single charge?
Apple's investment in wireless charging is not too old; however, it is crucial that we will be pleased to see it there in the next Apple iPhone 9.
Moving from the Apple iPhone 7 to the iPhone 8 smartphone device, enabling the wireless charging feature necessary to make the phone back all-glass, to let the charging signal pass through the device. This feature hints that the iPhone 9 might not seem completely different from today’s devices.
