Black Apple iPhone 5C might be a fake, five other color options allegedly real
The iPhone 5C is expected to become the more affordable (yet not cheap) iPhone that Apple desperately needs to remain competitive in developing markets, and the device has leaked out in five colorful shells. A couple of days ago, though, a new color - black - surfaced in what looked like another typical Apple leak. We saw the black colored shell, with cutouts for the buttons and sized just as all others. However, it might be just a well crafted fake as Apple leaker Sonny Dickson now says a black iPhone 5C does not exist.

Dickson who has consistently leaked components for upcoming Apple devices in the last month or so, has now jumped in to warn about the fake black iPhone 5C. Moreover, Dickson claims to know that Apple never even planned a black version of the plastic iPhone.

As to the origin of the images of the black iPhone 5C shell, they are obviously from China, where local sources have publicized them as 5C parts and pictured them along the iPhone 5S. Such parts are allegedly in wide circulation in China and can be purchased via etailers for as low as $13.39.

This - if true - would leave five color options for the alleged iPhone 5C - white, green, blue, yellow and red. Apple is expected to officially uncover the device on September 10th when we'll finally know all the details straight from the horse's mouth. We’ll be covering that event live, so stay tuned.

Yes and you would get a more better design and that too with I think KLP. And specs. would be almost G2 for a very good price point and not like iPlastic 5C's price.

I think there are already too many leaks for saying that all of them are fake. But the final colors could look different because changing the colors can be done very fast.

I have an idea.. how about PA collects all the iPhone 5c color leaks and presents them all at ONCE!

That way we don't have to wade through 5000 worthless articles describing all the fun and fancy 5C colors! I don't think most of us really give a @$^&!

Two words: web traffic.

Like Papa said, they want the web traffic. Thing is, if rabbid Android fans stop clicking on Apple articles starting flame wars that end up with 100s of comments then they would stop. There are about 5 to 10 Apple regulars but Apple articles have the most comments. How and why? It makes no sense lol.

I like Apple for their well built products, I've had my 4S since it came out and it has been a great phone, but this just looks horrible. Even Samsung products that are made with plastic look much better than this. Let's see how going this route turns out for Cupertino.
