What should we call the next 4-inch iPhone? The iPhone 7c? The iPhone 6c? The iPhone 5se?

No matter what it’s called, there’s every indication it’s coming. And if this video is to be believed, this might be our first glimpse of what it looks like.

Chinese iPhone and gadget site MIC Gadget posted a video yesterday purporting to show the next 4-inch iPhone, as taped by a Foxconn employee.

As you can see, it looks like the iPhone 6s, only smaller. This is in keeping with previous rumors about the next 4-inch iPhone’s physical design.

That said, there’s a lot of reason to be skeptical. First of all, there’s the source: MIC Gadget doesn’t have much of a track record recently when it comes to accurately revealing what’s happening within Apple’s supply chain.

As for the video? Even if we’re to believe this iPhone is an Apple product, there’s no way to scale it. We’re told it’s a 4-inch iPhone, but what if the guy holding it just has huge hands?

What do you think? Fake or real? Let us know in the comments.
