According to some internal sources, Apple’s upcoming new device which is named as iPhone 6C will come with 1,642 mAh battery, slightly larger than the iPhone 5s battery’s 1,570 mAh capacity.
The report, citing insider Foxconn employees, also corroborates multiple rumors claiming the 4-inch iPhone will feature an A9 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB internal memory, Touch ID and the same 2.5d curved glass used on the iPhone 6 and later.
Apple’s suppliers will reportedly begin mass production of the much-rumored smartphone in January ahead of a possible March announcement and subsequent April release. At least five sources have now predicted the iPhone 6c will launch in early 2016 since rumors about the device began circulating this year.
In November, often-reliable Japanese blog Mac Otakara reported that Apple has developed a new 4-inch iPhone that is essentially an iPhone 5s with sixth-generation iPod touch features, including an A8 chip, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.1 and an improved Face Time HD camera with f/2.2 aperture. The iPhone 6c may also come in at least three colors and lack 3D Touch.
