official-iphone-5c-1There were some rumors earlier this year that Apple might be considering bringing back the “C” model which made its debut in 2013 with the iPhone 5c. The handset was largely considered a flop which even Apple’s CEO Tim Cook admitted, but could Apple be thinking about bringing it back with the iPhone 6C?

According to the latest rumors, the answer is yes. This is according to Jefferies analyst Ange Wu who claims (via PhoneArena) that Apple will be debuting the iPhone 6C and that unlike its predecessor which came with a plastic build, Apple will instead be using a metal chassis and that the phone could see a release come H1 2016.

Now this seems a bit odd given that Apple usually reserves a time in the year to release new iPhones. Launching the iPhone 6C in 2016 means that Apple could potentially have two phone launches in the year which is a little strange, but then again we suppose plans could change. It also seems to be in line with earlier rumors that the rumored 4-inch iPhone won’t be launched this year.

It also seems that Foxconn will be the company Apple will be tapping to build the rumored device. Take it with a grain of salt for now, but what do you guys think? Is there still a market for a 4-inch metal iPhone in today’s phablet-dominating market?
