Despite Apple now abandoning its “nano” branding, newly surfaced emails reveal that the Cupertino-based company was working on something called the “iPhone nano.” Confirming rumors that surfaced back in 2011, one of Steve Jobs‘ last emails spotted in a series of emails revealed from the Epic Games vs. Apple lawsuit confirms discusses an outline for the phone.

The email dated back to October 2010 features an agenda for a strategy meeting about plans noted to “create low-cost iPhone model based on iPod touch to replace 3GS.” “2011 Strategy” also notes that “Jony,” presumably Apple’s former design chief Jony Ive, would present a “show model (and/or renderings).” It is interesting to note that the email came about four months after the release of the iPhone 4 and sixth generation of the iPod nano.
