  • Leaked Images of Alleged iPhone 6c Shell Show Minor Tweaks Over iPhone 5c


    As we reported just last week, Apple is reportedly planning to manufacture an iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, an iPhone 6c this Fall that will offer consumers with 4-inch, 4.7-inch, and 5.5-inch screen options.

    Leaked images Monday morning from Future Supplier give us a look at the purported iPhone 6c plastic shell, indicating that the iPhone 6c will take a lot of parts from the legacy iPhone 5s, while keeping mostly the same look as the original iPhone 5c.

    The minor changes in the plastic shell show differences to the LED flash, which will offer the dual-tone LED flash instead of the basic one-color LED flash that it originally had, as shown above, as well as changes to the bottom microphone grille and speaker grille, which have doubled in size with the number of holes, as shown below:



    The iPhone 6c should come with Touch ID and perhaps the same A7 processor & motion co-processor that come in the iPhone 5s, as well as much of the iPhone 5s' other hardware that is expected to be shared. This gives it a nice performance bump over the original specs, which mirror that of an iPhone 5 rather than an iPhone 5s.

    We will continue to keep you updated as more information is revealed.

      That's lame. I'd expect at least 6 specs. They aren't gonna convince anyone to upgrade like that.

      The A7 is more than enough power for people that buy the "c" phones. Chances are they don't know the difference and don't care.

      The deal breaker is co$t. We already knew it would be plastic..saves $$ to build. As long as it has a finger reader, I feel this entry level phone will be perfect for Apple initiates.

      I think it'll likely be either a $99 or free iPhone with contract through the carriers. Of course, if you buy it unlocked from Apple, then you'll pay a pretty penny.

      I always buy my iPhone outright and unlocked from apple as although it's expensive at the start you save a ton of £ in the long run by running a sim only contract

      They'll still be selling the 6 so if the bumped the 6c up to the 6's specs they'd be effectively killing the iPhone 6 off early.

      Isn't that exactly what they did to the 5?

      If it's going to have only 1GB of RAM then it better stay at 32-bit. I hope the speaker/mic changes don't cause trouble with cases originally designed for the 5C.

      Yes. The 5c was a 5 in a plastic casing. But the 6c won't share the screen size of the 6 so it sets up a new (or rather an old) product category. They'll market the 6c as entry level, the 6 as standard, and the 6S as their top tier. Probably with a sapphire screen or even the pressure sensitive screen like the watch, processor and camera upgrades as always, and a few new colors.

      while I'm happy with my i6, I think there are many people well beyond initiates that would be interested in a full spec device of this size because of physical usability. Something like a 5c would only be compelling if it had the right stuff. Agree Touch ID is a must. But nfc for Apple pay would be important as well. Assuming small size should be paired with small features is probably a good recipe for a 5c sequel.

      5C was a BIG failure... I don't understand why Apple would repeat this mistake!
      6C will only sell if it is offered at a subsidized rate... no way anyone would spend 500$ on this plasticky sh*t!

      I wonder why so many people think that. The 5c actually sold more than any other phone out at the time except the 5S. The 5c didn't fail at all, it just didn't break Apple's standards so people feel like it fell short but It still sold more than the Galaxy S4 or any other non apple smartphone.

      People who say that the 5C was a bust probably don't get out much… at my university there are loads of people who bought it instead of the 5S because of its price.

      Only if it comes base with 32gb memory

      All Iphones should start at 32gb of memory and go up to at least 250gb maybe 500gb
      memory is cheap

      Would be awesome a phone that size. Probably 256 /512/ 1024 gb though. I'm still Not sure why they got rid of the 32GB models. 16GB is too small, that's why I went for 64GB.

      That's exactly why they got rid of 32.
