Apple's upcoming 4.7-inch iPhone will likely be called the iPhone 9 and not the iPhone SE 2, according to a new report from Macotakara. The news will likely come as a blow to ardent iPhone SE fans who have been patiently waiting for a true iPhone SE successor for nearly four years now.
Notably, the Macotakara report corroborates a number of previous rumors we've seen about Apple's forthcoming iPhone, including the fact that it will boast a 4.7-inch display, Touch ID, and Apple's next-gen A13 Bionic processor. In light of the fact that the device will boast a 4.7-inch display along with Touch ID -- as opposed to Face ID -- it's clear that the device will not feature an edgeless display. Consequently, the device will reportedly have the same form factor as the iPhone 8. Clearly, the prospect of Apple introducing an iPhone model with a truly compact form factor now appears slimmer than ever.
