Apple is trying to come up with a cheaper, more compact iPhone and the company is using the iPhone 8 as its base.
According to reports from suppliers who attended the CES 2020(Consumer Electronics Show 2020), Apple intends to bring the iPhone 9 with the body of an iPhone 8, the latest chipset A13 Bionic and with Face ID, while omitting Touch ID and the button as well to make room for a bigger screen.
Adopting a TrueDepth camera and removing the fingerprint scanner will really help the display to grow from 4.7″ to 5.4″. The camera will also be updated, as well as the accompanying LED flash.

For the cameras, it has a 7 MP shooter on the front and a 12 MP + 12 MP camera with features like Digital Zoom, Auto Flash, Face detection, Simultaneous HD video and image recording, Touch to focus on the rear.
