Alleged iPhone 9 aka iPhone SE 2 appears in hands-on video
We have a new hands on video of the iPhone 9 or iPhone SE 2 that was posted to Tik Tok yesterday. We should take this video with a grain of salt but, we see a more squared design like we’ve been hearing as the new iPhones are supposed to resemble the iPhone 4. We see the single camera at the back that looks like the one on the iPhone XR and a mint color variant like the one on the iPhone 11. The phone seems to be working as it was unlocked with Touch ID. It might also bring a USB-C port from the looks of the video.
