According to a new rumour by Japan’s Macotakara, Apple is nearing the launch of a new 4-inch iPhone as an upgrade to the iPhone 5s, which is being dubbed by the source as ‘iPhone 5s Mark II’. The report citing “credible sources” claims that  ‘iPhone 5s Mark II’ will feature an A8 chip, 802.11ac Wi?Fi, Bluetooth 4.1 and a FaceTime HD camera with ƒ/2.2 aperture, similar to the 6th generation iPod touch.

The source also notes that manufacturing of the rumoured device has already started and that it may begin shipping much earlier than previously reported. It must however be kept in mind that no official word from Apple regarding such a device has ever been released.

Previously, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has also claimed that the new 4-inch iPhone will feature a metal chassis, rather than the plastic body that Apple used on the iPhone 5c.

    If they had a NFC I would consider it. I wonder if it released soon could next year maybe be a return to one size format with the new design as well.

    To be honest, I miss the size of my 5S. Was so much more comfortable to hold and easier to weild than the 6S.

  • I loved the 5S size…but I do enjoy the larger 6S Plus screen size more, despite being tricky at times to navigate with.
