According to the latest rumors, the answer is yes. This is according to Jefferies analyst Ange Wu who claims (via PhoneArena) that Apple will be debuting the iPhone 6C and that unlike its predecessor which came with a plastic build, Apple will instead be using a metal chassis and that the phone could see a release come H1 2016.
Now this seems a bit odd given that Apple usually reserves a time in the year to release new iPhones. Launching the iPhone 6C in 2016 means that Apple could potentially have two phone launches in the year which is a little strange, but then again we suppose plans could change. It also seems to be in line with earlier rumors that the rumored 4-inch iPhone won’t be launched this year.
It also seems that Foxconn will be the company Apple will be tapping to build the rumored device. Take it with a grain of salt for now, but what do you guys think? Is there still a market for a 4-inch metal iPhone in today’s phablet-dominating market?
