The next 4-inch smartphone made by Apple has been in the rumors for many months now, yet it still hasn’t become official. That may change in the next few weeks, however, if we go by some recent speculation.
One thing that’s been up for debate so far is what it’s going to be called. The oldest rumors have referred to it as the iPhone 6c, then some people started calling it iPhone 7c, and today a Chinese analyst says it will actually be neither of those.
According to this person, Apple will name its new 4-inch device iPhone 5e, where “e” is supposed to roughly stand for “enhanced”. This model will apparently be a slightly upgradediPhone 5s, coming with support for Apple Pay, as well as VoLTE.
The main camera will reportedly be an 8 MP unit, while the SoC running things should be the A8, paired with 1GB of RAM. In China, the iPhone 5e is expected to cost CNY 3,288, which right now means $500 or €459.
