The iPhone 5c is available in a variety of colors, so it stands to reason that the rumored upgrade to the economy handset would keep to that pattern. According to a recent mockup of the “iPhone 6c” by 9to5Mac, we might expect to see the same color choices as the current generation of the iPod touch.
Recently, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicted the design, processor, and launch date for the iPhone 6c. According to Kuo, the new 4-inch handset will come in a metal casing, resembling the iPhone 5s, but with the same curved cover glass used on the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s.
The handset may feature an A9 processor, Kuo believes, and other sources predict Touch ID support, a Near-Field Communications chip for Apple Pay, and 2 GB of RAM. There are also rumors that the device will contain a larger 1,642 mAh battery, but the iPhone 6c likely will not feature 3D Touch features.
From the mockups presented by 9to5Mac, rumors are beginning to circulate that the device will come in more than just three casing colors as we recently suggested. Instead, the iPhone 6c will match the iPod touch lineup with silver, space gray, gold, rose gold, pink, and blue options.
Whether these speculations prove true will only be revealed in time, but you might not have all that long to wait. Apple is supposedly planning a March 2016 event to unveil the second generation Apple Watch along with the iPhone 6c, suggesting the first iPhone to ever be released in the spring.
