While there is still no official statement from Apple to confirm or deny the rumors going around since a few months ago that the American tech giant would be launching three iPhones in September, it seems that the global tech community is already sold to the idea that the speculation is indeed a big possibility.
According to reports that first came out late in March, Apple would be launching the iPhone 6S, the iPhone 6C, and the iPhone 6S Plus. But there are also reports saying that it the Cupertino-based company will be launching the iPhone 6C, the iPhone 7, and the iPhone 7 Plus.
IBN Live however believes that the three upcoming Apple iPhones would be the iPhone 6, the iPhone 6C and the iPhone 7.
Note that the only consistent iPhone model in the rumors going around is the Apple iPhone 6C. The reason for this is that as early as last month, there have been leaked images of the iPhone 6C on the internet showing the smartphone to be smaller and featured some modifications too, particular in the input and output holes of the device.
The purported Apple iPhone 6C shall have an oval-shaped camera hole instead of the traditional round and two loud speaker holes at the bottom of the smartphone.
And instead of sustaining its recent initiative of going large through the current iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, Apple is reportedly going small again with the iPhone 6C as it would feature a 4-inch display. It is also being rumored that the supposed iPhone 6S shall have a 4.7-inch display while the iPhone 7 will sport a 5.5-inch screen.
Comparing the iPhone 6C and the iPhone 5C
Late in March, one website called Future Supplier, got hold of an iPhone 6C with rear housing and it subsequently compared it to the iPhone 5C just to show the differences in size and also the input and output holes of the device, particularly on the back and on the lower side.
It first compared the rear part of the iPhone 5C with that of the iPhone 6C. It noted that the iPhone C has a round-shaped flash hole on the upper back side of the phone, the iPhone 6C features an oval shape for the same flash hole located on the same position.
The second difference can be seen on the lower side portion of the smartphone. The iPhone 5C only has one row of four holes for its speaker output on the bottom side whereas the supposed iPhone 6C has two sets of four holes, or a total of eight holes, on the same side of the handset.
There is also another obvious difference in terms of the input hole for the microphone. The iPhone 5C has only one hole while the iPhone 6C has six in all.
While these are just leaked images and Apple has yet to make an announcement to either confirm or deny its authenticity, the photos cannot hide the fact that there is a real iPhone on the photos.
Although the facade of the new smartphone has not been shown in the leaked images for obvious reasons, it is clear that it’s an all-new device and not a previous iPhone model.
