iPhone 5C in the flesh ahead of 5S event

Although most of you may not want to believe that the cheaper iPhone 5 may end up being called the “iPhone 5C” upon release, the rumors continue to state otherwise. Last week we showed you some iPhone 5C cases that prematurely went on sale in the UK, but now we have whispers from China, which seemingly reveals iPhone 5C packaging in the flesh for the first time.

It has been rumored to death that Apple will finally unveil a ‘low-cost’ iPhone for consumers that don’t want to break the bank this Fall, but the term iPhone 5c still fails to light up the excitement factor for a device that is apparently rocking a significant amount of plastic materials.

As we wait Apple’s event on September 10 when we are likely to see the device in Tim Cook’s hands on stage, we may have an early glimpse at the packaging for the iPhone 5C thanks to a new image leak from China.

The image you see above shows what the iPhone 5C could look like when it hits retail shelves, whilst offering another glimpse at the all-round plastic theme that Apple will adopt to drive those costs down.

If we are to focus in on the color-theme for the iPhone 5C, then we may even see Apple use a red/pink wallpaper as the default option when booting up the device. It’s not the first time that we have seen Apple stick to the same packaging and wallpaper combo, so we’ll have to await more evidence on this packaging from China.

Will the iPhone 5C run a full version of iOS 7?

Obviously the most important thing above all, is cost. Consumers may not be too fond of the plastic design as of yet, but Apple can seriously eat into the low-end smartphone market share by offering a price that is too good to turn down.

Based on this picture – how much would you be willing to pay for a low-cost ‘iPhone 5C’?
