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.

Thanks for the tip!

I can hold the iPhone 6/6s device and call it a 4inch iPhone without a ruler to measure it

Stupid pa doesn't know it's a fake, or it just a click bait :(

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).

No, but I've never liked the look of the 6 and 6s.. all metal is cool but there's is ugly compared to like HTC or Huawei

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?

Yes, I agree. But would love a 5s design with current hardware 5", 4.7" and 5.5" and you got a winner.

He has a point. Also the fact that some parts are covered makes it suspicious. If you really look carefully you can tell it's longer and wider than a real 4inch phone.

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

How is Apple desperate? Not calling you out, just curious what led you to that conclusion...

If Apple is desperate, then HTC and Sony are hella 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.

Gonna have like, a 850mAh cell all in the name of thinness.

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

C stands for colors, not plastic?
