KGI analyst Ming Chi Kuo has shared Apple Plan about upcoming iPhones, and about iPhone 6c release date he believes it to happen in early 2016. Ming Chi Kuo is known as the best Apple analyst, and he is not the only one who expect a 4 inches iPhone, but some other analysts also said about a smaller iPhone in the past.
iPhone 6c Release Date
Ming Chi Kau has a record of providing most accurate information as far as Apple products are concerned, and he mentioned in his note that a 4-inch iPhone would arrive in the first half of 2016. This would be iPhone 6c that many users are waiting for. He also mentioned that the 4-inch iPhone would feature Apple A9 chip, and Foxconn would be the only manufacturer of this model, and TSMC would prepare A9 chip. There is no confirmed detail on iPhone 6c release date yet, but we will update you as soon as we get more information.
Kau believes that Apple would no longer use Polycarbonate material in its affordable 4-inch iPhone. It would be wrapped in metal body, and this model would lack 3D touch.
iPhone 7 and 7 Plus would follow the usual schedule of new iPhones launch, but this time configuration would differ, Ming Chi Kuo reported.
