The assembly will reportedly be split between Taiwan-based manufacturers Hon Hai Precision Industry (Foxconn), Pegatron Corp and Winstron Corp.
The report claims the iPhone 9 will have an iPhone 8-inspired design with a Touch ID home button, 4.7-inch screen and iPhone 11-matching Apple A13 Bionic chipset.
We’ve seen conflicting reports, which suggest that the lower-cost iPhone 9 will indeed have an iPhone 8-inspired design but omit the home button in favor or Face ID and thus have a slightly taller 5.4-inch display.
That would make more sense in 2020.
The lower-cost iPhone rumor is a bit long in the tooth now.
Is it finally the year that iPhone 7 and 8 owners will get their long-awaited replacement?
