Apple releasing a new 4-inch iPhone early next year, iPhone 7 w/ A10 chip on track for Q3, iPhone release cycle wont be changed

Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI analyst  has today shared an investment note in which he breaks down what Apple will do in terms of its smartphones come in the year 2016. In the report, Kuo claims that Apple is still working on a refreshed 4-inch iPhone. The iPhone release cycle won’t be changed we all know that, so you wont get the new iPhone this year, it will be released in 2016.

Apple has always done a great work when it comes to mobile devices and also in mobile app development. Kuo said that the 4-inch iPhone “resembles an upgraded iPhone 5s” and it will features a new A9 processor. The design of the device is not clear from Kuo’s report, but he hints that it will feature a metal casing as opposed to the plastic design featured on the iPhone 5c. So a new metal iPhone 4inch is coming soon.

Furthermore, Kuo anticipates that Apple’s 4-inch iPhone will not feature 3D Touch in an effort on the company’s part to clearly differentiate it from the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. Kuo believes there is still a healthy market for a 4-inch iPhone and that Apple will launch the device in the first half of 2016 and ship between 20 million and 30 million units by the end of the year.

Regarding the next major iPhone refresh, Kuo says Apple will keep on track with its normal third-quarter unveil and subsequent release of the device. Kuo anticipates that both the 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch models of the iPhone 7 will feature Apple’s A10 chip. The two variants of the device will differ, Kuo believes, when it comes to RAM. The analyst expects the 4.7-inch iPhone 7 to feature 2GB of RAM, like the current-gen devices, while the 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus will feature 3GB of RAM.

Kuo believes that Foxconn will be the sole manufacturer of the 4-inch iPhone and TSMC will produce the A9 chip for it. TSMC will also be the sole provider of the A10 chip for the iPhone 7, he anticipates. We can easily compare iPhones according to screens but a smaller iPhone is quite productive for many works, we can’t deny that.

Kuo makes no comments regarding earlier rumors stating the iPhone 7 will feature a new waterproof and dustproof design. The analyst also does not provide color on rumors that the device will move away from metal in favor of a new casing material.
