  • Photo of Purported Plastic 'iPhone 5C' Packaging Leaked on the Internet


    A photo of what appears to be retail casings for an ‘iPhone 5C’ have surfaced on the Internet via Chinese site WeiPhone Sunday morning.

    The new retail casings appear to be made of the same plastic as the plastic shell that has been spotted on what is presumably the new cheaper iPhone to be announced this Fall alongside the iPhone 5S.

    The iPhone 5 is expected to be dropped from Apple’s device lineup this Fall in favor of the iPhone 5S and this new iPhone 5C. It’s unknown exactly what the C stands for, although some opinions range from cheap to colors.

    It hasn't been confirmed yet if the packaging is legitimate, but we will definitely know by this Fall.

      I'm thinking there gonna do away with 3GS,4,4s and have the 4" cheap phone and 4" iPhone 5 and so forth. Gives everyone a better organized idea of what they want and won't confuse anyone. Of course this is just an idea

      Can't see them using plastic boxes as nearly all company's have been moving to easy to recycle packaging and although plastic is recyclable cardboard is cheaper!

      c will stand for cash. As they need something to compete with Samsung and Google.

      Tim cook himself said 4S stood for Siri. As I'm sure 5s will be for speed which I believe the 3gS stood for
      Well if Samsung can sell lots of plastic I'm sure apple can too

      Don't you folks ever get tired of being wrong?

      PLUS it's plastic so why not toss them in a bin like that..... won't hurt a thing. I know I know Stevie would never let this happen!

      Maybe this is for the premium phone and the C stands for carbon? Maybe Apple is finally putting that Liquidmetal stuff to work.

      This is a Chinese FAKE iPhone manufacturer preparing for the next iteration. Here are the reasons: Plastic, Cheap looking, Posted from WeiPhone (yep), And the cases are just thrown in a bin (not stacked). They should just print iPhone 5F -for FAAAAAKKE.

      How about the "C" stands for iPhone "Colors"? We have all seen the pics of the new phones looking like a bag of Skittles. C may stand for color or colors IMHO.

      so what .. it may be an propaganda .. who knows ..as such kind of tricks are most common these days to get the early eyes of the buyers before its launch and form a well known background being advantageous at the time of buying

      I'm guessing the 'C' stands for Color as the rumors show multiple color models.. but Cheap would work too.
