The “iPhone 6c” is about as mythical as the “iPhone 7” at this point, but if rumors are any indication of future plans, then Apple must be gearing up for another small iPhone.
The latest report is from MyDrivers, and initially surfaced from Gadgetz Arena. In it, unnamed sources reportedly tied to Foxconn state that there will be plenty of changes to the iPhone 6c when compared to previous generations of the iPhone, including the iPhone 5s. While the iPhone 6c will supposedly feature the same size screen as the iPhone 5s, measured in at 4 inches, a set of key differences will help it stand out next year.
That includes an increase to not only the battery, but also available RAM under the hood. The report indicates that the iPhone 6c’s battery will be measured in at 1642mAh, which is an uptick from the iPhone 5s’ battery measured in at 1570mAh. On top of that, the iPhone 6c will supposedly boast 2GB of RAM — the same amount that’s present in the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus.
The report also echoes rumors that the iPhone 6c will feature an A9 processor to run the show.
Finally, the report indicates that Apple is planning on putting the iPhone 6c into production as early as January of 2016, and that the launch could indeed happen in the first half of the year. It’s also expected that the iPhone 6c will look exactly like the iPhone 5c. Interestingly enough, the report also sheds light on what it believes the pricing will be, set at 4,000 yuan right now, or about $617 USD, for the 16GB variant.
