Apple’s purported 4.0-inch iPhone 6C for more than a year now, but it never materialised.
Now, a new report has surfaced online that the company has actually finalised the device’s design and hardware specifications, and is speculated to be unveiled early next year.
Apple iPhone 6C, an upgrade version of the 4.0-inch iPhone 5S, is said to house the company’s proprietary A8 chipset, similar to the one we find in iPhone 6 (2014) series and also feature Bluetooth v4.1, Wi-Fi (802.11 ac) and an improved Face-Time (front) camera with f/2.2 aperture, capable of recording HD (720p) resolution video. It is also expected to come with Touch ID finger-print system, but won’t feature 3D Touch.
Word on the street is Apple has intentionally excluded the 3D Touch in the iPhone 5S Mark II so that the feature will be exclusive to top-end devices — in this case iPhone 6S series and its successor iPhone 7.
