Two generations after Apple decided to discard its own ideal phone size, the giant phone maker has decided to release another 4-inch Smartphone next year. Recently, we saw some leaked information at the China Mobile roadmap presentation that suggested that the Smartphone will be released in April; latest leaks have proved the April launch date as the correct date for the release of the much anticipated Smartphone.
At the China Mobile roadmap presentation slide, we also saw the month of the release, while many reports till date have concluded that it’s the iPhone 6C, the leaked slide presentation calls it the iPhone 7C, and considering that the iPhone 5C was launched alongside the iPhone 5S, the release of the next Smartphone may not be in line with Apple’s nomenclature.
The slide presentation that was spotted online, coming as part of the presentation of their roadmap in 2016 suggested that Apple will launch the rumored 4-inch Smartphone in April, and from the second week of May, reports are claiming that all shipments will be officially begun. This launch date still supports some rumors that the Smartphone will be launched around mid-2016, but the month of its launch was not specifically stated.
It is noteworthy to know that Apple is planning an event in April next year, an event in which Apple promises to launch the Apple Watch 2 and might also decide to launch the 4-inch iPhone 7C. KGI analyst, Ming-Chi Kuo, a man who has a track record for Apple leaks said, “the iPhone 6C will enter mass production in the first half of 2016.” Recent leaks have shown that the iPhone 6C will be launched in January, not April. Remembering that the iPhone 7C is to be launched in April, we may agree that the iPhone 6C will get launched earlier; this will help Apple get the most from each of the Smartphones when released.
Talking of the specs of the iPhone 6C, it will be featuring the same innards as the iPhone 5S’ notable Touch ID. Customers can also expect to get an A9 SoC that will really enhance the benefits they derive from the Smartphone. The Smartphone will also be coming with an improved FaceTime HD camera that comes with f/2.2 aperture; it will also be supporting Wi-Fi 802.111ac and Bluetooth 4.1 wireless. One of the downsides that we may anticipate on the iPhone 6C is the fact that it may not be coming with a 3D Touch display after-all, remembering that this feature is a flagship feature in Apple’s latest generation of iPhone models in the 6 class. Apple has stated that its iPhone 6C will be put under its budget Smartphone range, meaning you may not have to tear your pockets to get one.
In a video that emerged in China, some of the visible features of the iPhone 7C as seen in the video included a no-signature home button, bazel-less display, a centered rear camera and a front facing camera. All which may prove that the iPhone 7C in the video was a fake.
We will be keeping you up-to-date with what’s happening in the Apple camp and hopefully, you will be getting a glimpse of what the real iPhone 7C looks like. Just stay tuned as we send you latest updates.
