According to a new report from KGI’s Ming-Chi Kuo, the analyst claims that a speculated new 4-inch iPhone is unlikely in year 2015. This contradicts some recent reports and supposed 4-inch ‘6C ‘case leaks, but KGI is usually more reliable than other analysts. We may still steer clear of such a predictions however, given that bulk manufacturing of iPhone models won’t be started for a few months, allowing plenty of time to Apple to change plans.
Kuo implies that that is due to the foremost hardware changes that Apple is planning to bring along on the iPhone 7 with the Force Touch technology, which may open the entrance to your completely new features on the smartphone. Kuo further reports that the iPhone will have an FPC-made capacitive Force Touch sensor built into the display, and is entirely different to the tech obtained in the Apple Watch and the latest 12-inch Retina MacBook’s trackpad.
KGI also suggests that whilst the next-gen 4.7 and 5.5 inch iPhones will feature pressure-sensitive Force Touch technology, it is entirely different with what the customers will spot in the new Apple’s Watch, MacBook and the recent 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro.
Kuo has also claimed that Apple is sticking with same screen size this year – 4.7 and 5.5-inches. Interestingly, Kuo also claims that the rumored 4-inch iPhone is highly unlikely to be released this year.
