Apple iPhone 6C is actually one-time cancelled update to its four inch smartphone, and seems to be in headlines once again. This small screen handset is again being talked up the analysts, who reveal that the Canadian giant is ready to release the device and boost its sales figures.
1. An early 2016 release date:
According to Ming Chi Kuo, who claimed that Apple’s 4 inch handset iPhone 6C will go into production early in 2016. It is expected that the phone will be released in the first half of the year this breaking Apple’s annual release cycle and giving iPhone a boost in its sales.
2. A9 processor included:
Apple is expected to include its A9 processor in its upcoming iPhone 6C smartphone, which is the same as the one found in its top-end iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus phones. If that happens this will put the iPhone 6C ahead of the popular iPhone 5S, that was released in 2013 and is still available in the market with A7 processor. It will also give a chance to the Canadian giant to sell the older device at a knockdown price.
3. Absence of 3D Touch:
As per source, Apple might not include the 3D Touch in the iPhone 6C. The top-end technology is currently only available in its iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus. There are harness pressure sensitive pads to free up. It is suggested that the Canadian giant might not want to infringe on the major USP of its flagship phone by including it in a cheaper handset.
4. Completely metal-design:
When the plastic iPhone 5C was launched it was not that popular but then the prices dropped and it was hugely successful in its second year. Apple sold it as a budget alternative to its high-end phones. However, the company abandoned cheaper material this year and has no plans to go back to these. It is expected that the iPhone 6C will feature all metal design to keep up with the currently available iPhone range.
5. Big sales records:
Kuo reveals that Apple will sell between 20 and 30 million iPhone 6C units in 2016, which might account for a tenth of its annual iPhone sales. The company will sell bulk of the new iPhone devices in China, where it is enjoying a boom in its popularity, but does not have a truly mid-range device.
