Back in November, I confirmed it that Apple is planning to manufacture and release a 4-inch iPhone which is to be released alongside iPhone 7. Later, a new rumour broke the charts hinting an early 2016 launch for the device.
Now, the same news is confirmed from what it looks like, a China Mobile Roadmap first reported by My Drivers site. There is an image of different smartphones to arrive in 2016, and as you’re guessing, iPhone 7c is listed.
Yes, as per this leaked information, the upcoming 4-inch 2016 iPhone is to be named iPhone 7c, which I highly doubt and also arguable. It doesn’t match with the nomenclature of Apple, and I’m still betting the device to be named iPhone 6c. I’m also not ignoring the fact that Apple is going to deliver a high-grade build, instead of polycarbonate shell, thus, might not use ‘c’ word in the name, which stands for ‘cheap.’
So, calling the handset in question, iPhone 6 mini makes sense to you? It perfectly fits in the puzzle, according to me!
Coming back to the latest breaking in the on-going event, an event is expected in April from the Cupertino based smartphone brand, which will feature the release of iPhone 7c or the iPhone 6 mini, or whatever you want to believe its name. The same event is also rumoured to bring the second iteration of Apple Watch.
There aren’t any other details available for now, but this new report is quite interesting as it brings the very first visual confirmation of device’s existence.
The possible specifications expected are Apple A9 SoC, 2GB of RAM, 8MP and 1.2MP FaceTime camera duo, metal build, iPhone 6s design language (or maybe of iPhone 5s), and Touch ID featured Home button. The display is definitely going to measure 4-inch with Retina display standard resolution, which will work with the screen size.

This is all we know at this time, but as usual, the rumours and leaks are not going to stop passing rumour mill. So, stay tuned!
