The iPhone 6c has been a rumored phone since March with little to show for it except for Foxconn’s worker hire, but that all changes now. Thanks to a new case leaked from site M.I.C. Gadget, we have some additional details to confirm about the iPhone 6c based on a new cardboard case that has been made for it.
The new iPhone 6c case (currently, a cardboard prototype), has the cameras in the same location as those of the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus. We don’t know whether or not Apple will make the iPhone 6c with the same color variation as the 5c, or add a new color to the lineup. The new sixth-generation iPod Touch colors are mature and classy, and we hope Apple implements the new iPod Touch colors instead of the bright, child-like colors of the iPhone 5c (the bright blue and yellow colors, for example).
According to the site, the new iPhone 6c will, like its predecessor, the iPhone 5c, have a 4-inch display. It’s also been confirmed by the site that the iPhone 6c will have 16GB of storage, which may make this smartphone more “budget-friendly” than the iPhone 5c was. When the 5c was introduced, it was priced at $549, which was the cost of the iPhone 5. With the new iPhone 6s and 6s Plus priced at $649 and $749 respectively, we can only hope that the 16GB iPhone 6c won’t cost a penny over $450. The site says, too, that we can expect a November release for the iPhone 6c, but a September announcement alongside of the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus.
Could Apple have its sights set on a true budget-friendly phone? We’ll have to wait and see, but at least a case prototype is encouraging.
