The OnLeaks Twitter account links to full details and all of his leaked renders on igeeksblog.
That site, using information from OnLeaks, says that the forthcoming budget-price device will be released in the first half of 2020. It claims that what it calls the "iPhone 9" will be almost exactly the same design as the iPhone 8 with a 4.7-inch screen and a single-lens camera bump.
The details in the leak are exact enough that the publication can claim that this new model will be 7.8mm thick instead of the 7.3mm of the iPhone 8.
The naming of the device as "iPhone 9" seems unlikely, but it has previously been reported by other sources.
Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has said that the phone will go into production in January 2020 and be launched at the end of March.
Kuo also reports that the phone will resemble the iPhone 8, and expects Apple to sell between two and four million of them. Other analysts are predicting similar success.
