Chinese tech website MyDrivers.com posted a picture that supposedly includes telecom giant China Mobile's (CHL) presentation of its plans for 2016. On the right hand column of the presentation labeled "April or later," one product reads "future Apple iPhone 7C."
CNNMoney could not verify the authenticity of the photo. But you can add it to the heap of of rumors that Apple will add a third new iPhone to its offerings in the spring.
The talk started when KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who is more often right than wrong with his Apple predictions, forecast in November that Apple will release a new, four-inch iPhone in 2016.
Kuo said Apple could ship between 20 million and 30 million of the new, smaller iPhones through the end of 2016. He predicts that the smaller iPhone likely won't have some features of the bigger phones, including 3D Touch.
But it would be made of metal (not plastic like the iPhone 5C).
Apple could be planning on a mini iPhone, because some iPhone customers are complaining that the 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhones that Apple introduced in 2014 are too difficult to use with one hand. Many prefer the four-inch iPhones that Apple made in 2012 and 2013. Read more on money.cnn.
