Leaked Rear Casing Hints At An iPhone 5C Successor
There has been a steady stream of rumors hinting at the possibility that the successor of Apple’s plastic-backed handset may already be in the works. The most recent addition to the rumor mill is the leaked picture of a rear casing of what is believed to be the iPhone 6C which gives us a sneak peek of the alleged 4-inch handset’s posterior.
Looking at the side-by-side image posted by Future Supplier at distance, there seems to be no significant change on the rumored iPhone 6C’s design.
A closer look, however, reveals two minor design changes which include a redesigned speaker grille and an oval cut out near the camera as opposed to the round one on the iPhone 5C.
The oval cut out near the camera suggests that the alleged iPhone 6C’s flash unit may be upgraded to a True Tone flash. However, the shape of the flash cutout also suggest that instead of getting a single-LED True Tone flash units found on iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, the rumored handset will have to make do with the dual-LED True Tone flash similar to the iPhone 5S.
Meanwhile, the iPhone 6C gets another row of speaker grille comprising of four holes. It’s still unclear if these additional holes will create better sound output or it will just add a few millimeters to the handset’s waistline as a result.
The Microphone on the right also got the same treatment, getting five additional openings laid out in two rows to probably complement the redesigned speaker grille.
