Splendid iPhone 6c renders keep the protruding camera, substitute metal for plastic
To this date, the iPhone 5c remains one of the more controversial Apple product releases. Why? Because the company basically took an iPhone 5, substituted the signature all-aluminum build with plastic, and kept everything else about the device the same. This, of course, angered some customers, as the iPhone 5 was taken off the shelves in favor of the new model, which some thought (and still think) was a cheap move. Given the absence of an iPhone 6c, this might mean that Apple agreed, though it could be that the company is simply waiting until it's time to unveil the iPhone 6s.

Now, despite all the negativity around the iPhone 5c, we've got to say that even we cooled off eventually, and have to admit that the phone doesn't look half bad with its far more colorful garb. This likely explains why we loved the below stack of iPhone 6c concept renders, courtesy of 3DFuture, that envision a world where the newest iPhone has a plastic counterpart. As you're about to see for yourself, much everything else about the 6c mirrors the iPhone 6 – from the protruding camera, down to the fingerprint scanner, speaker grill, and button layout.

Take a look.

Wouldn't suprise me at all if Apple did iPhone 6C to be honest, I do like the blue render there..

But sorta "kills" the whole point of Premium with that plastic on the back.

Looks like a cheap chinese phone (not talking about Huawei or Xiaomi)

Why a plastic phone couldn't be premium made ?
Because it costs less than it's metal brother ?

iPhone 5C just kind of busted that myth.

I think the iPhone 5/5s design looks good on a 6/6+ size.

How do you know Phonearena is a fan boy? "Splendid" in the title for the same phone as before, but cheaper build quality.

With a word "Splendid" they probably wanted to point out that it's colorfull and nice looking....

I got to hold the iPhone 6 for the first time this past week, that thing is damned slippery, they need to make the plastic textured or something. lol, I do like the renders of the 6C though. They look so much better than the 5C.

I agree because it gets rid of those hideous antenna lines.

Surprisingly I like it but I don't think Apple would try this again(we might be surprised) but how would would apple justify buying a 6s over a 6c.

More megapixel or faster chip/more battery life due to 14nm process or both
