Last year Apple joined the phablet makers club by releasing 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus. Now, the company is expected to launch the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus later this year, which will be also bigger than standard smartphones. However, it doesn’t necessarily mean that in 2015 the Cupertino team gives up on the smaller and more compact phones. According to recent rumors, Apple is going to launch one more phone this year along with successors of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. We are talking about the iPhone 6C that is reported to come with a classy 4-inch display.
Apple iPhone 6C tipped for 2015
According to the latest report, Apple is planning to launch three new models of iPhones in 2015, the 4.7-inch iPhone 6S, 5-inch iPhone 6S Plus and a more compact variant, dubbed iPhone 6C, which is rumored to come with 4-inch screen. This is definitely a good news for all those who aren’t fond of large screen finding them extremely unhandy in daily use or simply want their phone to slid into their pocket with ease.
The mentioned displays are rumored to arrive covered with a protective layer of Corning Gorilla Glass. All three will feature LTPS panels supplied by Japan Display, Sharp and LG Display when it comes to the iPhone 6S Plus and 6C. The iPhone 6S will have its display panel delivered by either Japan Display or LG.
Going deeper into tech parameters, the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus will come powered by the Apple’s latest A9 processor, while the iPhone 6C will get the A8 processor that is used currently in iPhone 6 lineup. Additionally, all phones will also sport NFC support and fingerprint scanning technologies. When it comes to design of the forthcoming iPhones, it’s still uncertain whether they will come featuring the current design pattern and color options, or perhaps the company will surprise us with totally new approach?
Other than that, we also learnt that the iPhone 6C will be assembled by Wistron whereas the 6S lineup will be manufactured by Foxconn Electronics and Pegatron. All three phones are expected to have its premiere in September. Time will tell whether the upcoming iPhones will repeat the great success of the previous series whose sales already reached the level of 75 million models.
