According to an alleged leaked China Mobile road map, Apple will be releasing the rumoured iPhone 7C (a cheaper version of the iPhone 7) in April. Now a new report is claiming to have new information on the yet to be announced device.
To be mass produced this month
According to a report from GadgetzArena, the rumoured Apple iPhone 7C has gone through a small trial production, and will enter mass production this January. According to a report back in April, Apple reportedly ordered 4-inch panels for the said device from AU Optronics. Renowned KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo also said that the affordable iPhone will be released sometime in 2016.
Going back to this latest report, it adds that the Apple iPhone 7C will look a lot like and share similar measurements with the infamous Apple iPhone 5C. The report also says that the device will be available in three colour options. Lastly, the iPhone 7C is said to feature a 1,642 mAh battery.
According to past reports, the Apple iPhone 7C will be constructed out of metal. It is also expected to feature a smaller 4-inch screen with 2.5D curved glass. Under the hood is expected to be the Apple A9 chip, which is the same processor found under the hood of the Apple iPhone 6S and the Apple iPhone 6S Plus. Past benchmark results have revealed that the A9 chip is a pretty capable CPU. The Apple iPhone 7 and the Apple iPhone 7 Plus are said to feature the upcoming Apple A10 chip, coupled with 3 GB of RAM. Like we mentioned earlier, the iPhone 7C is expected to be available across the globe in April. We’re guessing the device will be officially unveiled in the same month.
Of course, since Apple is yet to officially unveil the Apple iPhone 7C, take this information with a pinch of salt.
