iPhone 6C: what can be a new Apple smartphone?
It is possible that Apple release a smaller and cheaper version of its current iPhone 6S already during the first quarter of 2016. Over the past few months, there have been several rumors about the possible hardware specifications and design of a supposed iPhone 6C. Now we found a possible mockup of this new device.
We know certainly that iPhone 6C model has 4 inches screen size and therefore it is identical to the old iPhone 5 and 5S in terms of size. Unlike 5C model that had a plastic back case, the 6C can be aluminum but is unlikely to be like the toughest series 7000 which you can see on the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus. In addition, iPhone 6C may have A9 processor and fingerprint Touch ID technology, although some of the newer features like 3 Touch most probably will be absent.
Recently one rumor revealed that this supposed new model will also have 2 GB of RAM and a higher capacity battery than the old iPhone 5S. This means that, in two years, batteries have improved their capacity and kept the old dimensions.
This would be the first time an iPhone will be announced in the spring, but the truth is that in the past, Apple held an event in March where they presented the new MacBook 12” and formalized details about Apple Watch, presented in September 2014.
Some rumors are saying that Apple might skip the iPhone 6C and call the new model as iPhone 7C, since it could eventually accompany the approaching iPhone 7 in the lineup. Anyhow, it is still expected that the iPhone 7 will be presented as usual in September, so we don’t believe to these rumors.
