Colorful new Apple iPhone 6c renders show us what the anticipated munchkin might look like

If you've been keeping an ear close to the ground, you have most probably heard the recurring rumors that Cupertinians are poised to release a compact new handset in early 2016, which might or might not be called the Apple iPhone 6c. The device is expected to feature the design language of the 6th-gen iPod Touch; it is expected to boast a 4-inch display and an aluminum build in the exterior. Still, we shouldn't rule out a smaller-sized iPhone 6/6s lookalike. We expect the iPhone 6c munchkin to have a specs sheet reminiscent of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, like an Apple A8 chipset, an 8MP iSight camera and a 1.3MP FaceTime one, as well as a single gig of RAM. Make sure to check out our extensive rumor review for the iPhone 6c for additional info about the handset. 

Let's get back to the design now. We are not holding our breaths for any surprises in this department and seem to have a pretty good idea what the iPhone 6c might look like. Render artists do, too - a flurry of rather good-looking 3D renders and concepts have already made the rounds, visualizing the rumor mill's speculations. 

The most recent collection of appealing new 3D renders of the iPhone 6c seems to be one of the best ones we've seen in a long time. Created by Ferry Passchier, these new renders for the compact iOS handset are envisioning it as a scaled-down conveyor of the well-known iPhone 6/6s design language. We expect it to employ a way more diverse color palette in comparison with the bigger topdogs in Apple's arsenal, similar to the iPhone 5c. Ferry Passchier has put his faith into the five iPod Touch-like color options we currently have plus an additional one — iPhone 5-esque space gray, silver, gold, rose gold (which is a stranger to the iPod line as of now), dark pink, and dark blue. 

We might not have to wait for too long to witness the debut of the iPhone 6c - rumor has it that it will be introduced sometime in March 2016, alongside the second-gen Apple Watch. Well, we'll wait and see.

Absulutley unecessary.All that apple needs to do is to reduce the bezels for the iphone 7 to xperia z compact levels.

Apple will probably charge the same price as a regular iPhone for accommoding small hands. Accommodation fee anyone? Or our market share is going down fee? Whatever they call it people will be lining up to pay it.

I believe that profit is more important than market share unless you are trying to be philanthropic or to force your competitors out of the market.

Why not call in iPhone 6 Minus...??? That'd be a tad bit more in line with the currentiPhone name scheming, now wouldn't it? BTW, Would it be a 'Far Cry' to expect this device in the realm of Nexus 5X? You know, in the close 'proximity' of $400?

@jesus_sheep Well, What do you expect from someone who's getting bored in his office with a nice boss and no work? Yes, I'm aware that I'm one lucky bum!

Yeah, I thought that for a while. Makes sense, Plus-Minus, and it would be different from mini and sounds better. We know know that the iPhone 6c will be cheaper, but $400? Knowing apple I doubt this.

5S' design is still the best iPhone design IMO.

i would say 4/4S's design was better IMO...

Agreed, there were rumours claiming that it will keep 5S's design, I hope they are true. And that it will come with A9 and 2 gigs of RAM. Damn I want this phone so much!
