The oldest Apple phone currently on the market is iPhone 8, and the Cupertino company plans on using that as a base for its upcoming cheaper and more compact offering. New reports from suppliers who attended CES 2020 and spoke with a source from Japan shed some light on its specs.
According to the info, Apple wants 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 allow the display to grow from 4.7" to 5.4". The camera will also be updated, as well as the accompanying LED flash.

I think somebody along the chain mixed something up. This rumour sounds an awful lot like an iPhone 12 5.4 inch rumour rather than an iPhone 9 rumour
According to the rumours, the size will be the same as iphone 8. The fact that they remove d the touch id is to make the screen bigger from 4.7 to 5.4 inch. Well everyone have their own preference but you that phone have A13 chipset bruh.
