A new rumor for the iPhone 6c has surfaced, and this one comes from China Mobile. According to publication site MyDriver, the source notes that in the upper right corner of a chart during China Mobile’s event, reads the iPhone 6c will arrive in April 2016.
In addition, many are skeptical of this and are advising that many should take this with a grain of salt. However, according to GadgetzArena, the source notes that it will likely be the iPhone 6c than MyDrives prediction of the iPhone 7c.
The report by MyDriver notes that Apple will release the iPhone 7c in April 2016 (as seen above). With that said, Apple usually reveals their phones in a numbered order, and wouldn’t release a “c” variant before the actual iPhone 7 is revealed. With that said, it leads us back to the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus being referred to as the iPhone 7 during their rumor days, which if Apple is truly making an iPhone for March or April, then it would likely be the iPhone 6c than the 7c.
Moreover, according to the highly accurate Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, he noted that the rumored iPhone 6c would feature a lot of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s parts. It was also noted by the analyst that the iPhone 6c would arrive with an A9 processor and Apple Pay support.
Kuo also believes that the iPhone 6c will look very similar to the iPhone 5s, and will feature “2.5D” cover glass, a slightly curved design like the iPhone 6 and 6s, and will cost somewhere around $449. Something worth mentioning, the analyst notes that the 6c won’t have 3D Touch, but will sport a metal chassis to give it a “premium” feel.
If this rumor is actually true, it would link up with another rumor claiming the iPhone 6c to be revealed alongside the Apple Watch 2 during Apple’s March presentation event. This would mean that Apple would reveal the 6c in March and then release it in April.
Lastly, looking over to the iPhone 7, Kuo believes that the 7 and 7 Plus will sport the A10 processor, and will feature 2GB of RAM on the 7, while the 7 Plus will come with 3GB of RAM. Both the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus are reported to keep the same screen sizes of 2014’s 4.7-inch iPhone 6 and the 5.5-inch display of the 6 Plus.
