Similar to what would be the device’s predecessor, the 2013 iPhone 5c, the claimed 6c features the same candy-colored plastic enclosure, suggesting the same 4-inch form factor as the 5c, but with a couple key differences.
First iPhone 6c Difference: The Flash
First, the flash appears to have adopted the 5s’ two-tone pill shape, which might seem odd at first, considering the fact that dual LED flash system evolved with the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus to a round module. However, considering the fact that the 6c will likely come with a cheaper price tag, it makes sense that Apple would be forced to make technological compromises.

Next, the microphone appears to be significantly improved over the 5c, as suggested by the multiple cutouts for the component – the same thing applies for its speaker.
iPhone C-Series Revived?
Interestingly, while Apple first introduced their C-series iPhone in 2013 alongside the iPhone 5s, they all but abandoned it in their latest iPhone refresh, instead opting to focus on the significantly revised 4.7-inch iPhone 6 and its 5.5-inch iPhone 6 plus counterpart.
