Citing “credible sources,” Macotakara claims Apple has a 4” “iPhone 5s Mark II” ready for production and shipment. If true, the new phone will feature a patchwork of Apple’s older technology, including the A8 chip found in the iPhone 6 and the f/2.2 aperture FaceTime HD camera found in the most recent iPod Touch.
The new report conflicts yesterday’s rumor from IHS analyst Kevin Wang claiming a new “iPhone 6c” with an A9 processor is on the way in mid-2016. Wang’s information seemed to back up a prediction made earlier this month by KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who also said a new 4” phone would feature the A9 chip and enter production in the first half of 2016.
