iPhone 6C to come in two sizes too?
The iPhone 6C could come in the same two sizes as the iPhone 6, 4.7- and 5.5-inches.
According to a new set of leaked listings for the iPhone 6 from one online retailer, we could be looking at four brand new iPhone handsets in September.
Screen protector manufacturer XtremeGuard has listed four different types of iPhone 6 on its website, with both the flagship iPhone 6 and presumably plastic-bodied iPhone 6C coming with a 4.7- and 5.5-inch option.
While this could be a possible route for Apple to take later this year, the idea of Apple launching four new iPhones would be a brand new thing for the Cupertino company.
Before Apple launched the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C simultaneously last September, the company would only release one new iPhone model each year.
Plus, XtremeGuard has only used one render for all four iPhone models, which makes us a little sceptical as to their authenticity. The render is one we’ve seen before from previous premature listings, but it could just be that the company is preparing for all eventualities.
Although the iPhone 6 rumours have been coming in thick and fast of late, there’s been very few rumours on an iPhone 5C successor.
That may be because people believe the plastic bodied iPhone 5 didn’t sell as well, but I’ve personally seen more brightly coloured iPhone 5C devices around London than I’ve seen iPhone 5S models.
The iPhone 6 is expected to be launched at a dedicated event in September with the device most likely looking at a release date of September 19.
Apple is expected to kit out both models (or all four) with a sapphire crystal display, improving the resilience and durability of the screen panel.
No doubt the iPhone 6 will run iOS 8 out of the box and be powered by the rumoured Apple A8 processor that is focused on battery efficiency enhancements rather than huge performance upgrades.
