Apple followed June release cycle for iPhone 3G, 3G S & iPhone 4 but after that, the release of new iPhone shifted to September month.  Since iPhone 5, all the iPhone models are released in September month only.

The company seems to be following same month for new iPhone as well. Hence, we can anticipate iPhone 9 Plus release date should be in the Second week of September 2018 !

iPhone 9 Plus or iPhone 11 or iPhone X Plus?

Well, it has become a matter of huge debate whether the new iPhone would be called iPhone 9 Plus or iPhone 11 or iPhone X Plus. If we follow naming pattern, chances of new iPhone being called iPhone 9 Plus (and iPhone 9) are more than iPhone X Plus.

Some analysts believe that iPhone X was roman equivalent of iPhone 10 and the company has skipped number “9”. So the new iPhone will either be called iPhone 11 Plus (with iPhone 11) or iPhone XI. However, the other rumors suggest that new iPhone could be called iPhone X Plus as well.

The rumors also reveal that there could be three different models of iPhone in 2018 again and they can be iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Plus & iPhone X Plus.

There seems to be lots of confusion going on about the number of iPhone models being launched and the naming of upcoming iPhone at the moment. We are hopping to get things more clear in coming weeks and the same will be updated as soon as we get any new information about this.

iPhone 9 Plus Specs and Features

The company has been releasing new iPhone in pairs since last few years and we are expecting the same thing going to happen again. iPhone 9 Plus will be announced along with iPhone 9 in September month. The launch of additional model iPhone X Plus is expected as well along with these two.

The pairs of iPhone announced in last few years don’t have much difference except the size, RAM and few other additional features such as Camera etc. Let’s take a look at the specs and features of iPhone 9 Plus in detail.


The iPhone 9 Plus will get 5.8-inch screen and since it rumored to get bazel-less design, the people will have  lots of space available on the screen to do several things at a time.

Also iPhone 9 Plus is rumored to get OLED display just like iPhone X. It will have 2436 x 1125 pixels resolution and 19.5:9 ratio that equivalents to ~458 ppi density. It will have 3D touch display.


As far as the camera is concern, iPhone 9 Plus is getting dual lens front facing as well as rear camera with features like 4 x optical zoom (for rear camera), flash, face detection, OIS etc.

The phone may get 16 megapixels rear and 8 megapixels front facing camera. It will be able to record 4K videos with option to record videos in lower quality.

Operating System and CPU

iPhone 9 Plus will run the latest iOS 12 operating system that will be announced well before the iPhone 9 Plus release date. It will have hexa-core processor supported by A12 chipset that will make iPhone 9 Plus function faster than any other smartphone.


Talking about the memory, iPhone 9 Plus might be available in two different memory storage models only- 128 GB and 256 GB. It will have upto 4 GB RAM and improved Apple GPU.


Battery is an important aspect of any smartphone and Apple always improves it with every new iPhone. We are expecting iPhone 9 Plus will have further improved battery that will last longer than previous versions. iPhone 9 Plus may get 3,500 mAh massive Li-ion non-removable battery

Other possible features:

  • Long distance wireless charging
  • Dual Sim
  • Face ID
  • Dual battery
  • IP 68 Water and dust proofing

iPhone 9 Plus Price

The iPhone 9 Plus could be bit costlier than iPhone 8 Plus as its going to have several new features that its predecessors were missing. Moreover the OLED Display, long distance wireless charging could add to the total cost of iPhone 9 Plus.

Based on our research, we are expecting iPhone 9 Plus price for 128 GB model in the United State could be in a range of $950-$1099. For 256 GB model, the customer might have to add extra thousand bucks. This price might vary from one country to other because of commercial taxation policies of a particular country.
