New report suggests successor of iPhone 5C to launch in Q2 2016 with 14/16nm chips

New report suggests successor of iPhone 5C to launch in Q2 2016 with 14/16nm chips

 Apple is widely reported to be working on a new 4-inch iPhone model.

Apple may not be launching a new 4-inch iPhone model this year if the latest report from DigiTimes is true.

According to DigiTimes, sources from the semiconductor industry claim that the successor to the iPhone 5C will be unveiled in Q2 2016. The new 4-inch iPhone model reportedly will be powered by 14/16nm FinFET processors from Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) and Samsung. 

It was said that Apple initially wanted 20nm chips, but changed its mind in favor of the more processing power and lower power consumption offered by 14/16nm chips. Recent reports pegged a launch timeframe of Q1 2016 for the 4-inch iPhone although alleged plastic rear shells and battery pack suggest a launch this year.

Apple is rumored to be holding a launch event on 8th September where it will be unveiling the next generation iPhone(s).
