Video clip allegedly shows the rumored 4-inch Apple iPhone

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.
Thanks for the tip!

Am i the only one who think this is ugly?

No, I'm a huge Apple/iOS fan - and I think iPhone 6/6s design is ugly. I like the feel and how solid it is, but protruding camera, antenna lines, smooth corners, and big bezels on top and bottom are all bad designs. Samsung is putting Apple design to shame. Johnny Ive should control in software design only. I love the 5/5s design the most from all mobile device ever produced (including Vertu).

While I think that there is a lot of pent-up demand for a 4" screen (My wife wants a 4" screen) and I can see Apple building such a device, I don't think the RAM rumor is legit. I cannot imagine, going forward, that they want another 1GB RAM device in the upgrade chain when the newest iPhones have 2GB.

Who said the design would be like the iPhone 5S only metal? The 5S was also metal. Why would Apple use an old design for a new phone? Wouldn't it make logical sense that they would simply make a 4" version of the present design?

I somehow think that this is real. Apple is desperate.

This is fake. This is a 5s in a "mini" 6 chassis. You can buy them from AliExpress, eBay, Alibaba, etc. You of course have to take apart your phone though.

Why ? It's supposedly having a bigger battery cell then the 5S. It should be also thinner.

It must be called iPhone 6(S) Mini. It's not made from plastic, so why do you keep calling it "C"?
