Apple rumoured to be building a 4-inch iPhone 7 (6c)

A leaked report from the factories of AU Optronics has supposedly revealed they are supplying Apple with some of the display panels for the iPhone 7, and that some of these displays will be in a 4-inch variant. It’s only a rumour at the moment being circulated on TechNews.

Supply chain sources apparently told Korean site TechNews that Apple is looking for additional panel supplies for upcoming iPhone models and will need 4-inch, 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch LTPS In-Cell displays. Interesting ranges and if true may finally mean I upgrade my iPhone 4 (I do not like big phones).

Like any rumour no matter how reliable the source, if it doesn’t come from Apple then take it with a massive pinch of salt. On the subject of reliability the site’s history of Apple leaks isn’t 100%, although Apple run a tight ship so very few of us are. I think it more likely that if this is true it will be marketed as a 6C.

Rumours suggest it’ll be a similar set up to last time with a plastic backing and a 4-inch display and will sit at the cheapest end of the iPhone market.
