Well, this comes as a surprise to no one – Apple just announced the iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S. the iPhone 5C is the more affordable of the two iPhones that debuted today. The iPhone 5C lived up to the numerous leaks, combining iPhone 5 internals with a plastic outer shell that comes in a number of bright colors, while the iPhone 5s looks the same on the outside (if you don’t count the new white with gold/champagne option). It still has the same thin 7.6mm profile and it still weighs merely 112g. However it comes with a number of changes under the hood where pretty much all the work has gone into this time around.
Apple iPhone 5C
Here come the specs for iPhone 5c– a 4″ Retina display with the same resolution (640 x 1136 pixels), Apple A6 chipset (same as iPhone 5) running iOS 7, 8MP / 1080p camera, 100Mbps LTE connectivity, Wi-Fi a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0.
The iPhone 5c is thicker than the iPhone 5 – 9mm vs. 7.6mm – and heavier – 132g vs. 112g. Also, instead of aluminum it is made of hard-coated polycarbonate. It will come in five color options: White, Blue, Green, Yellow and Pink.
