The new iPhone 9 will look similar to the iPhone XR. It is said to flaunt metallic case on the back with big single-lens camera and True Tone LED flash. 

On the front, however, there are some contradictory reports related to the Apple device having a notch with Face ID, while others suggest Apple may incorporate fingerprint sensor.

Inside, the iPhone 9 is likely to boast Apple A13 Bionic chipset and possibly have wireless charging capability.
