The 4 Inch iPhone Gets Mentioned Once Again As The iPhone 6C
In 2014, Apple’s iPhone 5c might not have garnered the popularity accumulated by the iPhone 5s, but the Cupertino tech giant Apple is still aiming to release a 4 inch handset in the future, called iPhone 6C. A reliable source claims that individuals close to the company have stated that the screen size of the upcoming device will be 4 inches, while majority of the hardware specifications of the remaining handsets are currently in the dark.
iPhone 6C expected to feature Apple’s A8 SoC along with other features
Digitimes claims that:
“All of the handsets will come equipped with LTPS panels and supply for the iPhone 6S Plus and iPhone 6C will come from Japan Display, Sharp and LG Display while that for the iPhone 6S will come from Japan Display and LG.”
The website has stated that all of the upcoming smartphones will be reinforced with Corning’s Gorilla Glass and that the company’s rumored iPhone 6S will be equipped with Apple’s A9 chipset. The rumored iPhone 6C will be incorporated with A8, which is the same SoC present in the company’s iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus handsets.
Additionally, the upcoming devices will also carry an NFC chip. However, it has not been confirmed whether the chip will be limited to make contactless payments through Apple Pay or will users actually be able to wirelessly transfer content like they do with regular smartphones. Most importantly, these handsets will be running Apple’s iOS 9 update, which according to the company’s developers, will provide better performance since the update is being refined for optimization rather than being stuffed with a myriad number of features.
One can speculate that the reason Apple is rolling out a 4 inch smartphone is because the iPhone 5c and iPhone 5s are going to become a thing of the past real soon. In order to provide a faster, yet smaller product, Apple is being compelled to roll out a miniature iPhone. As for which firm will be manufacturing the components the power up the upcoming smartphones, the report claims that Wistron is expected to manufacture the iPhone 6C while the iPhone 6S lineup will most likely be assembled by Foxconn Electronics and Pegatron.
Consumers looking to believe that Apple is going to release a budget iPhone should remove that notion permanently because the tech giant has proven on previous occasions that it will continue to tag its products with high pricing variables.
More information concerning this will be made available in the near future.
