iPhone 6c

News on the iPhone 6c was released a few days ago, and this time more information was leaked on a possible release date and the specs on the new replacement for the iPhone 5c.

A new research note from Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities claims that Apple will be launching a 4-inch iPhone early next year. Kuo believes that the full year shipment will reach 20 million units, with production starting in the first quarter of 2016.

Kou expects the new iPhone to cost anywhere between $400 and $500, and will sport Apple’s A9 chip-set and NFC chip to support Apple Pay. The new device will also be offered in at least two or three color options, and will have a metal build instead of a plastic one like the iPhone 5c. The new handset will have an 8MP rear-facing camera and a 1.2MP front camera. The 6c will also have a cover glass with curved edges like on the iPhone 6s.

In addition, Kou believes that the 6c may not outsell the 6s, but will still generate modest sales.

Even though the 6s supports 3D touch, the iPhone 6c, however, will not support 3D Touch. This feature will most likely be reserved for the iPhone 7.

The iPhone 6c will be aimed toward those who would prefer a smaller phone or who want to save a little extra money.

We’ll continue to bring you the latest updates on the iPhone 6c as soon as they arise.
