Wang posted the information on his Weibo page, and the only spec mentioned is the 4-inch display that the phone will carry. Making the story much more plausible is that it's somewhat confirmed by KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. When it comes to Apple, no analyst has a track record like Kuo. Back in April, he correctly predicted that Apple would not introduce a 4-inch unit during the September introduction of the latest iPhone models.
Earlier this month, Kuo said that Apple was prepping a 4-inch iPhone that would be mass produced during the first half of this year. Unlike Wu and Wang's story, Kuo sees the new 4-inch model released next fall, along with the Apple iPhone 7 and presumably the Apple iPhone 7 Plus. The smaller-screened model will be powered by the Apple A9 chipset says Kuo, at a time when the iPhone 7 will be rockin' the new A10 SoC. According to Kuo, the 4-inch phone will be presented by Apple as a budget priced handset for smartphone buyers.
