A 4-inch iPhone 6 From Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)?

There are rumors that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) might be releasing a smaller version of the iPhone 6. The said phone is expected to have a four inch display, in contrast to the recent large and bulky iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 plus.

Have analyst identified a strong buy signal for AAPL?

As usual, Apple delivered exceptionally well on their new iPhone 6 and 6 plus. The releases were made late last year and had been eagerly anticipated, with iPhone fans expecting the best. The new releases lived up to their reputation. However, the two designs are too big. This makes them easier to drop and relatively hard to fit into your hands especially if you have small hands.

This largeness in size has emerged as problematic for iPhone users. Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) has therefore identified that that there is a huge number of iPhone users whose preference is smaller sized phones. Thus the needs for a smaller iPhone 6 design to capture more audience and allow for more manageability.

The iPhone 6 plus stands at whooping 5.5 inch of display while the iPhone six has a display of 4.7inch. The lack of a smaller size package of the powerful device reveals an untapped demographic for a smaller but similarly powerful device. It would certainly be nice to have an iPhone 6 that fits into your palm or directly into your pocket.

Sources revealed that Apple is developing two designs of the iPhone 6, namely the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6c. IPhone 6s is expected to have the character traits of the iPhone 6 plus and the iPhone 6. However, the casing will probably be different. The iPhone 6s will probably have a plastic casing and will be considerably cheaper.

The upcoming iPhone 6c might come with a 4 inch display. This would be such a welcome relief to iPhone users who desire a smaller phone. However, it might be hard for Apple to include the same technology of the big iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 plus into a significantly smaller device.
