Korea Telecom begins advertising ‘iPhone 9’ pre-orders
South Korea’s largest telecom company Korea Telecom has starred advertising the unannounced “iPhone 9” outside of its stores, shown in images shared by Indian news outlet MySmartPrice.
Apple’s low-cost “iPhone 9” is expected to be the predecessor to the iPhone SE, believed to be launching in March alongside a new version of Apple’s 13-inch MacBook Pro and updated iPad Pro models.
The handset is expected to resemble the iPhone 8 with a 4.7-inch LCD display and Touch ID, without 3D Touch or a headphone jack.
Korea Telecom’s posters show a red iPhone, very much like the (PRODUCT)RED iPhone XR that launched in 2018 however, the device in the image shows the Apple logo has been lowered to match the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro.
As seen in the images above, the Korea Telecom store has opened the pre-orders for both the Samsung Galaxy S20 lineup of smartphones and the Apple iPhone 9 smartphone. In the store’s pre-orders section, we can see the Samsung Galaxy S20 + the Samsung Galaxy Buds+ posters. Alongside the same, we can spot the rear image of the iPhone 9. The rear image does not tell us anything that we don’t know of already. The design is reminiscent of the renders that were leaked back in January 2020.
