The Alleged ‘iPhone 9’ Hands-On Video Shared On TikTok Is Fake

An alleged hands-on video of the upcoming iPhone 9 has been shared on TikTok yesterday, and sadly it is proven to be fake.

A recent video on TikTok called "iPhone 9" or "iPhone SE2" - a rumored cheap iPhone model. It shows the design of the upcoming affordable iPhone model with an expected price of around Rs. 28,600 and it will likely be released by Apple in the next few months.

Iphone 9 Hands On Video Tiktok
The iPhone model on this TikTok video is claimed to be the iPhone 9 / iPhone SE 2, which is expected to arrive in the near future as iPhone SE's successor.

With a design similar to an older iPhone, the iPhone in the video has thick bezels at the top and bottom and a physical home button integrated with Touch ID. The back of this iPhone is in blue color, but more noticeable is the slab-sided design of the iPhone 4 style, different from previous rumors.

Previous leaks have suggested that this iPhone model will look exactly like the iPhone 8 but carry the A13 processor, to match its price. Rumors have it that Apple will price the device at $399 (around Rs. 28,600), and for that price, it's unlikely that Apple will devote resources to developing a completely new design like the device featured in the video above.

So, it's possible that the iPhone in the video above is an iPhone 8 or other models with a custom housing case. If this device were an iPhone prototype, it would have a “Proprietary and Confidential” right on the home screen.

So far rumors have surfaced that the low-cost iPhone will go on sale in the first half of 2020 and Apple is expected to hold its launch event on March 31. If true according to this roadmap, the cheap iPhone will be on sale on April 3 next.

Update:

It seems like the iPhone 9 on the TikTok video is indeed fake.
