Rumours have their own statements to the possibility of Apple releasing a new 4-inch iPhone 6c will just not go away. We don’t think that Apple will release the so-called iPhone 6c, which however remains unknown at the moment, but speculations pertaining regarding its plans. A number of industry insiders and well-placed analysts have consistently predicted that the Cupertino-based company will launch a 4-inch Phone in early 2016 to appease those iOS fans who prefer a more budget option and don’t want to opt to a device that is 4.7″ or bigger at 5.5-inches. Now, a new report surfaced, is suggesting that the new 4-inch iPhone or 6c, could hit the market as early as February 2016, packing a vibrant colorful meta design.
The latest iPhone 6c information has apparently been gathered from a number of “Foxconn insiders”, as well as few other well-known sources that have knowledge of Apple’s extreme design and manufacturing plans. Source have confirmed that Mac maker is indeed working on a new 4-inch alternative to the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, and that it wll be launched in early 2016 with a “colorful metal body design”. Although, it was been tried by Apple in the past with the introduction of iPhone 5c, but with one distance difference; that handset while dressed in vibrant colors, carried a plastic shell, not a metal one like the iPhone 5, and 5S that followed later.
It’s indeed suggesting that the device exists, and it is pened for a February 2016 launch date timeframe. Foxconn is yet to receive any official order to mass production the device. Fine, if Apple does plan to go further with this particular model iPhone. Other than pure speculation and conclusion, there’s a little conjucture that we actually know about this budget 4-inch iPhone model. In fact, got a very little info to suggest that it actually a reality, currently.
Reports however in the past suggested that the hardware will ship for between $400 and $500 when it launches, which is obviously less than the $549 needed to purchase the iPhone 5c when it was released back in 2013. Other suggesstion that Apple would include on the 4-inch iPhone, A8 chip integration, as well as an improved FaceTime HD camera for video-calling and WiFi 802.11ac with Bluetooth 4.1 for improved data connectivity and wireless transfer. Launch could happen at any point in early 2016, as the analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities suggests. That too with a colorful metal exteriors of this purported device.
Do you think such mobile hardware exists?
