Video clip allegedly shows the rumored 4-inch Apple iPhone
A 40 second video posted on social media just might be giving us the first real look at the upcoming 4-inch Apple iPhone, expected to be unveiled as soon as this quarter. What is the device going to be called? So far, we have heard that it will be known as the iPhone 5e, iPhone 6c or the iPhone 7c. The video doesn't answer that question.

The clip, if legit, kills the rumor that the 4-inch iPhone would copy the design of the Apple iPhone 5c, except with a metal build. The video shows what appears to be a smaller version of the current Apple iPhone 6s. It does appear to contain a metal build and Touch ID. The 4-inch iPhone is rumored to have an Apple A8 chipset under the hood, with 1GB of RAM inside. We expect to see support for Apple Pay and NFC. An 8MP rear-facing camera is believed to be on board.

This week, we heard that Apple is planning a media event for March. At that time, we could see the 4-inch iPhone unveiled with a launch set for March or April. While the latest rumor has the 4-inch Apple iPhone being released in March, a roadmap from China Mobile calls for an April release of the device.

The Apple iPhone originally sported a 3.5-inch screen until the screen was bumped to 4-inches in 2012 with the Apple iPhone 5. That is where it stood until 2014 when the Apple iPhone 6 was launched with a 4.7-inch screen, and the Apple iPhone 6 Plus phablet hit the market with a 5.5-inch display.

The video supposedly was recorded inside Foxconn. Check it out by clicking on the video below.
