This might be from Ripley’s Believe It Or Don’t Future Files, but it makes sense on one hand. There’s still a market for smaller smartphones, hence the rumor that Taiwanese display maker AUO will be Apple’s screen manufacturer for the iPhone 7c.
This is AUO’s first iPhone order. The company has transformed its L3A and 3B factories into Low Temperature Poly-silicon (LTPS) factories to manufacture iPhone 7C displays to be shipped by first quarter of 2016.
On the other hand, that’s a year from now. That makes no sense, especially since Apple already makes a 4-inch model in the 5s and 5c, and the latest rumor mill gossip says Apple might skip the 6s series altogether.
Industry insiders projected iPhone 7c will not be released on the market till one to two years later, since the release dates of iPhone 6S, 6S Plus and iPhone 7 have not been announced. The C series have always been the more affordable iPhone model, and considering how iPhone 5c sales were lower than expected, it quickly fell out of the mainstream. Hence, further observations are required for the iPhone 7c.
This sounds just like so much nonsense, and what happens when an infinite number of monkeys are given an infinite number of keyboards…
