$399 ... This will tank Samsung Galaxy in the US & Europe.
If this costs 400-500€ i’ll be buying it and so will many other people. Bezels dont bother me if it means good software support... also, i’d rather have one good camera than four medicore camera.
I remember 10 years ago when there was a flood of Chinese touch-screens, dual-sims, huge batteries packed with features and some even had an antenna to watch telly. I was never interested and I would always prefer not so "cutting-edge" models from Sony or Nokia. Maybe because I was a Sony "sheep" or maybe because some people just favours quality over quantity. Who knows.
Anonymous, 20 Feb 2020You're wrong and self centered. Yes large phones sell well. But many many many people want a s... moreNo, you are wrong.
iPhone 11 Pro , or Xs, or X aren't much bigger than iPhone 9 will be. They just to expensive to own by many.
iPhone 8 (same size as 9) is still sold by apple, and in many countries even 7 is still sold.
But they are old.
If someone wanted small iPhone right now, they aren't denied in options. And barely 9 will improve situation for them regarding size.
If they wanted upgrade, they could have upgraded already. Year ago, two years ago.
Reason the haven't, isn't because of size, it's because of price and having modern tech.
They want something which is small, new (hence longer support, better hard inside) and cheap.
There was no size thing in SE.
There will be no size thing in 9 either. Because as I already pointed , similar sized iPhones are still sold .
ishreal, 20 Feb 2020Completely untrue. Not only will it more than likely have a larger battery than the iPhone 9/S... moreCompletely untrue - you! The S10 has a catastrophic range noted right here, I quote: "The Galaxy S10 has a 3,400mAh battery capacity - not an insignificant 700mAh difference compared to the Plus. It's still a lot if you look at competitors like the iPhone XS (2,658mAh) and the Pixel 3 (2,915mAh).
We measured a little over 10 hours in our Wi-Fi web browsing test, and a few minutes short of 13 hours in video playback - each figure around 2 hours short of the S10+'s. Similarly, the S10 couldn't quite reach the Plus's 24-hour voice call result and called it quits at 21:19h. The overall Endurance rating works out to 79 hours (91h on the S10+)".
Furthermore the 8 Plus case was available but they deliberately chose the smaller one, probably not with a guesstimate but rather with surveys. Some Apple customers (and others like me) want a small phone with the best proc of the moment. At 400/450 euros the competition will only offer the OLED screen as an advantage and will have a lot of disadvantages according to the customer who appreciates a screen that can be used with one hand, a directly accessible and efficient fingerprint sensor, security updates for several years (the iPhone SE has the latest updates even though it has been on sale for four years) and of course iOS. These customers are already making an effort to go from a 4-inch OS, there is no question of offering them something that is 150mm high. That's the limit when you try to think about what they want and buy and what motivates them. In short, it will sell for millions, and you can regret it by believing that you know what's good for them. Hang in there.
Can't wait for it to replace my SE. Put me in the camp of iPhone users who love iOS but can't and won't buy the latest and greatest Apple devices that are just too expensive, the SE-like products are fine for me.

Anonymous, 20 Feb 2020If this sells out for 400usd,it will be the most selling iPhone despite all the hatred spilled... moreOnly apple super fans go for it or just fans of apple. Other people want more from there phone and they get more with other brands for that price. And there are still feature phones around what are compact and what last weeks without charging them.
Nik, 20 Feb 2020i can't blv they're making phone with huge bezels in 2020 to survive in 2023 just bcz ppl will... moreYou're the broken one, this device looks amazing, remember whose the one who bring curved edge and corner and notch, not screen.
If it was waterproof and my S10e got broken, I would actually consider it...
An iPhone 8 with an upgraded chipset for $400?
This will be the top selling phone of 2020.
Nik, 20 Feb 2020i can't blv they're making phone with huge bezels in 2020 to survive in 2023 just bcz ppl will... morehahaha you think Steve Jobs cares?? He's probably happy that Apple still no.1 most profitable company in the market
i can't blv they're making phone with huge bezels in 2020 to survive in 2023 just bcz ppl will buy it for Apple logo. Long live Steve Jobs. heartbroken ..
No way that's a legit iPhone if it has a partially applied screen protector on the back.
ishreal, 20 Feb 2020Let's be honest, if the majority of people wanted small phones then the larger iPhone and Gala... moreYou're wrong and self centered. Yes large phones sell well. But many many many people want a smaller phone still. Many also feel like you get jipped if you don't take the larger phone at this point.
It will sell well for price and size.
