See the glossy green iPhone 5C chassis snapped from all sides in high resolution
After the white iPhone 5C, now it's the green version's turn to be photographed from all angles in high resolution snaps. The chassis seems rather glossy, reflecting a bunch of light off of it, which wasn't that evident with the white paint.

The overall impression is rather candy-like, which is probably what Apple is going for with this showoff coloring scheme for the first "budget" iPhone model that is claimed to be targeted towards youth and emerging markets.

The handset is set to be unveiled next month, alongside the more premium iPhone 5S model, which is said to also add more colors to the usual black and white scheme, like gray and champagne gold. Are you liking what you are seeing from the iPhone 5C so far?

Apple - lack of innovations....Lumia design all the way, funny that now it is great and innovative for some...when nokia introduced first colourfull N-line, it was funny and bad for most of you...and now even durable...

Get a grip man, there has been colors for mobiles for as long as they've existed.
iPods had and have colors too, and they are even older than the "N-line"

iPod is a mp3 player...not a phone that i was pointing to. I do not remember any phone maker to introduce these colours before NOKIA did. mp3 players were here in various colours before not even from apple.

That is true.
But i still don't think the design has a reference to the Lumia line.

Motorola, Sony, and Nokia.
Although Motorola and Sony were way more advanced back in the day. Still are. :P

My ancient Sony Ericsson was color and you had to attach a camera half the size of the phone. While Nokia could only get color on their screen.

next thing we know Apple will patent colors on their phones so no one else won't copy color phones.

Please look back at the samsung case and the proto-types that came to light. They pretty much look like this design and they were from 2001. So no this has no Lumia influence.

I say not bad, but may ruin the apples reputation of being producing premium looking devices...

True, but you can't deny the Lumia influence.

You make it seem like this is the first time Apple has offered a variety of colors in any of their products.

You response is a joke because Nokia was using color even before the Lumia phones hit the market. So you may be right about Nokia but your off and invalidate your entire post because your referencing the wrong phones.

It looks cheaper than any samsung galaxy released

Well its actually not that bad. Simple design but that glossy finish ruined the entire design
my opinion.

The glossy finish makes this phone even looks not much different from the Samsung flagship.
i wonder wich one more durable this cheap iphone or GS4.

I have used the Galaxy S4.. and perhaps that might be me taking those pics.. JUST MAYBE.. But this prototype felt much better than the S4.

Image 16 shows that it is shot by a compact digicam :). Nice though, I didn't liked the black apple logo on its back.

What would you like then? A 'Mango'?

I like the color...looks juicy! Lol.

22. itsdeepak4u2000 (Posts: 2866; Member since: 03 Nov 2012)


Yeah, I also liked the color but silver Apple logo would be good to see as per my view.

Silver Apple logo would be a bad miss-match on colored shells. It might look good on black or white ones but not on the new colored iPhones. Black is a good move.

Perhaps a Panasonic Lumix... But how would i know.. ;-)

I have a feeling they will be as well. Only makes sense. Maybe the iPhone 5C stands for Color or Change

Let us imagine no apple on the back and nothing written about the iphone but just the name of some Chinese company like e.g. Huawei; we would all just laugh about this cheap looking phone...

I've seen worse...like those low-end random androids manufactured by even the likes of LG, let alone ZTE & others. Same goes for low-end WP8 models. The design isn't bad at all...it just resembles more of an iPod which I think is a decent design. Ppl are being overly dramatic.

Is it just me or does this phone chassis does not have any place for the volume rocker on the sides?

Hmmm... either these are reference pieces and not the actual chassis (or) Apple is trying some button less volume control feature.
