If the recent news gathered from some analysts is something to reckon with, then would launch the latest 4-ich iPhone early next year. According to a report by Ming-Chi Kuo who is an analyst with KGI Securities, he confirmed that this new iPhone will be similar to an upgraded iPhone 5S Apple but doesn’t predict a plastic iPhone 6C. This new device that will be powered by the A9 chip witnessed in the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus is billed for launch in the first half of 2016.
The 4-inch Smartphone will however not give the pressure sensitive 3D Touch feature, so that it will differentiate the lineup, unlike the larger models mentioned above. The belief is that Apple will upgrade this product line, as there is still demand for a 4-inch iPhone, as reported in an investors note. However, Apple is likely to release an upgraded iPhone 5S, in view of the fact that iPhone 5S is well-known than the iPhone 5C.
It was then predicted that Apple will produce 4-inch iPhone in 1H16 with metal casings, and the production will be in large quantity. In addition, Apple may espouse an A9 chip for this newest phone, in order to make the existing iOS 9 or next-generation iOS 10 run efficiently.
Analyst Kuo’s message regarding metal casings emphasizes that the tiny iPhone would not be a retread of the plastic and colorful iPhone 5c. This respected analyst has a strong track record that makes him particularly convincing, despite the fact that there have been rumors about a 4-inch device since 2015. Kuo predicted the launch of the 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhone correctly and also the new iPhone 6S and MacBook, over recent years.
The predictions of Kuo concerning iPhone 7 are safe and not predominantly stirring. This man forsees an upgraded A10 chip for the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, together with the Plus model having 3GB of RAM as against 2GB. This is to distinguish it as the top-end device, according to Mac Rumors. It was however concluded that if Apple doesn’t release a total of three devices this coming year, the entire iPhone array will appear oddly the same as Xperia Trio from Sony, despite that Sony even thinks that a 4-inch Smartphone is just too small to the market of nowadays.
