With less than a month left for Apple to announce its new iPhone models at a much rumored launch event on September 11, the rumor mills are churning out new bits of info by the hour. The latest rumor to make the rounds of the interweb is the possibility of Apple unveiling not two, but three variants of the iPhone 6s next month. While earlier reports talked about Apple giving an incremental upgrade to the existing iPhone that includes the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus, the new rumor adds a third handset into the fray.
The report by G For Games includes a sketch (which doesn’t look too trustworthy) and adds that this version of the iPhone 6s will get a 5-inch full HD display as opposed to the 4.7-inch display on the current iPhone 6. This, according to the report, is for users who find the iPhone 6 too small and the iPhone 6 Plus too large. The 5-inch display seems the perfect answer to satisfy folks who wish to own an iPhone thats “just right” for them. While it is only a paper sketch of the new rumored 5-inch iPhone 6s, the information is claimed to come from a source at Foxconn, the company that manufactures iPhones for Apple in China.
Once strange discrepancy in the report is the claim that this new 5-inch iPhone will get an 8-megapixel camera with dual LED flash. This, when most rumors talk about the new iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s Plus getting a 12-megapixel sensor, is rather odd. Why would anyone buy the 5-inch iPhone with a seemingly inferior camera?
If this rumor wasn’t enough, there are also talks about the possibility of Apple coming up with an iPhone 6c version for people who find even the 4.7 inch iPhone 6 too big. The iPhone 6c is rumored to be a smaller, lower priced variant of the iPhone with mid-range specifications. A render of this iPhone 6c, too, has been posted on the website.
As already reported by the Inquisitr in the past, Apple is in all likelihood readying itself for the launch of the new iPhone models on September 9 in an event where they could also launch new versions of the Apple TV and, possibly, the new iPad.
As always, we advise you the reader to take these rumors with the tradition pinch of salt. That said, there have been occasions in the past where seemingly ridiculous sounding rumors did come true.
