Must "C" TV: Apple iPhone 5C shell, Apple iPhone 5S casing and Apple iPhone 5 spotted on video
On Monday, a video was posted showing a comparison of the Apple iPhone 5S casing in champagne/gold, an Apple iPhone 5C shell in blue and an Apple iPhone 5. Compared to the casing on the premium versions of the iPhone, the plastic candy coated shell of the iPhone 5C certainly looks like something that would be lower down on the pricing scale.
The most interesting news we've heard about the Apple iPhone 5S in the last few days is that the Qualcomm radios on the phone will support China Mobile's proprietary TD-SCDMA network. Considering that China Mobile is the largest carrier on this planet, this could give a big boost to Apple and the iPhone in the region. Remember, it was none other than Apple CEO Tim Cook who once said that China would soon be Apple's top market.
Meanwhile, we are closing in on the two-week warning until September 10th when Apple opens door number one and door number two to introduce the Apple iPhone 5S and Apple iPhone 5C. The tension is rising.

Exactly!!! A true iPhone fan has no reason to get excited over a iPhone 5C. As someone that loves Android I can respect a Apple person that can see past the bullcrap. The iPhone 5S will be considered high end for Apple so why get all built up over something that's worst than the 5S?
And I find it funny that most people that visit sites such as phonearena.com are looking for the latest and greatest tech. Why torture us with crappy articles about colors and plastic? The only iPhone news worth reporting in the last few days was about the 30% increase in processor speed. Everything else was just garbage.

Expanding the brand. Not everyone can afford an iPhone 5s, and for those who cannot, or who may want something colorful, you have the 5c.

And as far as I read... iPhone 5C will NOT be cheap as well.. And for a cheap iPhone.. the iPhone 4 now and 4s (when 5S goes out) will cost significantly less.... I dont see the point of the 5C to be honest..

The 16:9 screen and extra 0.5" will be a great improvement over the 4S

It will be significantly better just from the fact that it will likely support LTE as it should be almost identical to the current model 5.

Not an apple fan but they need to step it up they need to make a 4"8 inch iphone thats just the new thing. Think about you cant possibly take advantage of a smart phone with a screen thats small.
