There might be a smaller version of the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus en route.
Apple’s so-called “iPhone 6c” is rumored to have a 1,642 mAh battery, slightly larger than the iPhone 5s battery’s 1,570 mAh capacity, according to sources.
The report cited “insider Foxconn employees” and also corroborates multiple rumors claiming the 4-inch iPhone will feature an A9 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB base storage, Touch ID and the same 2.5d curved glass used on the iPhone 6 and later.
It’s thought that Apple will begin mass production of the iPhone 6c in January, ahead of a possible March announcement and subsequent April release. At least five sources have now predicted the “iPhone 6c” will launch in early 2016.
It had previously been reported that Apple has developed a new 4-inch iPhone that is essentially an iPhone 5s with sixth-generation iPod touch features, including an A8 chip, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.1 and an improved FaceTime HD camera with ƒ/2.2 aperture. The “iPhone 6c” may also come in at least three colors and lack 3D Touch.
Stay tuned for additional details as they become available.
