A picture showing a number of plastic retail boxes with an Apple iPhone 5C insignia printed on the side indicates that Apple could be using the letter "C" to differentiate the low-cost version of its smartphone with the next full-priced version of the phone rumored to be called the Apple iPhone 5S; with the multi-colored plastic shells that have been floating around lately, purportedly for the low-cost iPhone, the "C" could stand for "color"...

Wait a minute! iPhone 5C? Sony Xperia C?
So now manufacturers will name their low cost phones with a C on it?

Nothing from Apple can be qualified anywhere near "cheap".

Why not? We can classify Samsung phones that have a higher BOM than the iPhone as cheap.

They have a higher BOM because Samsung doesn't lock in components like Apple does and take advantage of huge economies of scale. If Apple made the S4, it would be significantly cheaper.

Probably this wont sell well in China as its own chinese fake will be 20USD of less...so again, no market for Apple in China.

The "C" probably is meant to stand for "Color"... but damn, the internet is gonna have a field day going with "Cheap" instead.

37. Jack58221 (Posts: 120; Member since: 23 Feb 2013)


it fits in with the rest of the naming... iPhone, iPhone 3g, then iPhone 4 and 5. no iPhone 2....

now we have iPhone 5, an iPhone 5 light or what ever, and option C... like iPhone 2, they forgot about labeling the other 2 as option A and B.

It looks like a batch of rejects as it was meant to be (s) and the machine was programmed incorrectly and printed (c) instead.

The roundness/curvature of the packaging is similar to the casing of the phone, at least to me. I don't see what's wrong with it.
