Alleged 4-inch iPhone demo looks just like iPhone 6s

A new video claims to show of a demo unit of Apple’s upcoming 4-inch iPhone straight out of the Foxconn factory. The device looks identical to the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s — so much so that you probably won’t be able to tell the difference.

The video was published by MIC Gadget, a Japanese blog that has been reliable in the past, and it allegedly showcases a demo unit that was leaked from a Foxconn factory — where Apple’s devices are assembled. The 40-second clip shows off all angles of the handset, which is very familiar.

It looks so familiar, in fact, that we’re not entirely convinced this is a 4-inch iPhone at all. Without another iPhone in the video for a size comparison, we can’t be sure, but at a glance, it looks like this is a regular iPhone 6 or iPhone 6s.

You can normally tell the difference between an iPhone 6s and an iPhone 6s Plus by looking at the distance between things like the front-facing camera or the home button, and the edges of the device. Or the distance between the Lightning port and the headphone jack.

But there doesn’t seem to be any noticeable difference between this particular device and a regular iPhone 6s.

We could be wrong, of course. Again, it’s hard to tell with just this video, and it’s not like making a 4-inch iPhone that looks like its siblings is a bad idea. But it’s probably best you don’t get too excited by this particular “leak.”
