There have been a lot of speculations circulating regarding Apple’s most talked about 4-inch iPhone. A recently leaked online video indicates that the upcoming device may be an iPhone 6 look-alike. The rumored handset is believed to be known as the iPhone 5e.
The new 40-second video clip (see below) published by M.I.C Gadget claims to showcase a model of the upcoming 4-inch iPhone. The clip shows the phone from all angles.
The design of the device resembles the 4.7-inch iPhone 6. The displayed phone appears to have a similar camera placement and Apple's Touch ID fingerprint scanner on the Home button. It even sports Apple’s logo on the back panel. However, the authenticity of the video clip is questionable.
If the rumours are true, Apple will launch an iPhone with a 4-inch screen after the iPhone 5s and 5c. M.I.C. Gadget mentioned that the said video was leaked by an employee of Foxconn, one of the hardware manufacturers of Apple.
It is believed the Cupertino-based tech giant will launch the 4-inch iPhone 5e (which according to rumours will be dubbed the iPhone 6c) sometime in June this year; breaking away from the usual tradition of unveiling iPhones at its annual fall event. Apple will reportedly launch the next iteration of the iPhone 6s, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus in September.
The speculated 4-inch iPhone 5e is tipped to sport an Apple A9 processor, 16GB of in-built storage and 2GB of RAM. However, recent rumours from China indicate that the device may house lower specs including 1GB of RAM and A8 processor.
Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities previously predicted that the new 4-inch iPhone would come packed with an NFC chip to support Apple Pay. He also indicated that the handset will not sport Apple’s latest 3D Force Touch technology used in the latest iPhone 6s lineup.
