Alleged iPhone 5C specs sheet points to a 4-inch, dual-core device with 1GB RAM, iOS 7 and Siri support

After months of high-profile leaks surrounding the iPhone 5C, there's no denying that things have reached a state where we've started to approach the whole subject as a little bit of a bore. The plethora of colorful shells that are said to come with Apple's budget iPhone have been a topic of extensive discussion, for if nothing else, they constitute something of a departure from the spirit of premium, high-end products only. And while that's a significant departure from Steve Jobs' legacy, it's quite natural that after a while we all became a little neutral towards the subject, for informative scoops were rare to non-existent, not to mention wildly speculative.



This whole affair has now changed somewhat with today's leak, because while still just as unsanctioned as any prior ones, we finally get our hands on something a bit more specific.



Here are the rumored iPhone 5C specs:


  • Unknown dual-core chipset

  • A 4-inch, 1136x640 display

  • 1GB of RAM, 16/32/64GB of internal storage

  • 8MP shooter at the rear, 1.2MP at the front

  • 124.2x58.4x7.6mm, 106g

  • Will run iOS 7 with Siri (support for English, French, German, Japanese, Chinese, Korean, Italian and Spanish)

The list is obviously unconfirmed, and is the work of an insider that has the ear of Dutch SIMOnly Radar. If these turn out to be true, though, then expect the iPhone 5C to be exactly as slim and just as uniform as the iPhone 5 – a tad taller, a bit teeny bit narrower, and a little lighter compared to the 5S. Also interesting is the fact that this new intel contradicts rumors claiming that the iPhone 5C may launch sans Apple's personal assistant.

i love this article "So why now? Because Apple is getting trounced globally and a lot of people can’t afford their products. It’s brilliant marketing. The average consumer usually can’t tell the difference between different iPhone versions. So repackaging older specs in a newer body is the perfect way to keep costs down, while giving the consumer the feeling that they are buying something new. This is pretty much a bait and switch and no one in a carrier store is gonna catch it. My question to iFans out there is what’s your response now? Let’s say the the iPhone 5C does well. Does that mean that Apple had to lower themselves to the Android level of products or that Android manufacturers were actually onto something when they made their products more affordable and therefore broadening their consumer base. Either way, this is just the latest example of the purest definition of hypocrisy to come out of Apple."

Yep. Gotta upgrade those low end android phones to this one. Landfills will be full of gingerbread devices :( RIP.

The only lack of innovation I see is the usual tirade of troll comments from Apple haters. They aren't forcing you to buy the 5C and it's certainly not being marketed towards you.

REALLY?!?!? This is just an Apple iPhone 4 with plastic colors. Real innovation here. lol

so bigger screen and a bigger processor is innovation?..

Posts: 4888; Member since: Apr 15, 2011

No that's not innovation, but how about a new design, instead of the same rehash from 2010? Let me guess..... iOS 7's blatant copy of Android is innovation right? Anyways what up gallitoking? Long time no speak, how are you & your family doing?

Samsung has done minor changes ther last 3 years ansdd has released countless device in same shape differerent sizes and because is Android (Samsung) is ok.... iOS 7 is not a blatant copy of Android because Android also got the idea from somewhere else as well.. SAE dude.. everything is fine . i live in the Golden State California... and the family is doing great hope you doing the same as well.

Bigger is better, color...not so much. Also I believe the word you were looking for is "faster" processor, not bigger.

35. xperiaDROID

No. Bigger screen and a faster processor doesn't count as an innovation. Innovation refers to a new method, idea, product etc. For instance, a chinese manufacturer Oppo made a cameraphone called Oppo N1, the Oppo N1 has a rear touch panel, which counts as an innovation.

77. stealthd unregistered

So it's innovative when Oppo takes a feature from the PS Vita and puts it in a phone? LOL

They're in total denial.

Err iphone 4 is a single core processor, so no more like an iphone 5 in every sense, and yes it might be plastic but since is all about branding, like it or not, it will sell if priced correctly, we still have to wait and see.

The only ridiculous thing I see is the buttload of troll comments from a butthurt Apple fanboy called Mxyzptlk. You have forgotten about your troll comments you posted on many articles? So, you can bash other manufacturers and we can't bash Apple? What kind of stupid logic is that?And now you said that they're posting troll comments? You're one of the worst troll I've seen in PhoneArena. Butthurt much? I can make it even better, Apple iPhone 5C is a fail crap. There, no need to thank me. Have a nice butthurt day! Don't forget to take your butthurt 25 cents from Apple!

How does it make you feel knowing that this "fail crap" will sell millions. The sales record will even beat a lot of the high end models from other Android manufacturers. I see this phone beating sales of HTC One, Sony Experia Z, etc. Please share with us your thoughts. TY.

25. xperiaDROID

Posts: 5629; Member since: Mar 08, 2013

We advise you to not take this "fail crap" thing too seriously. xperiaDROID is just reminding Mxyzptlk that he is trolling, so he have no rights to accuse people posting troll comments. Hope this reply explains it. For further assistance, please find us at PhoneArena.com.

Aka, he's being immature and trying to cover his tracks.

Sales does not make me feel anything... maybe it even cheers me up because that pushes Android manufacturers to work harder and truly innovate... or sell at a lower price to compete... Either way MY money is going to be traded for worthy tech... not a basically iPhone 5 but made of plastic.

31. EclipseGSX

Posts: 1773; Member since: Oct 18, 2011

Well said, I was thinking the same thing. Seriously if it takes Apple getting billions of sales on this and we get something amazing from Android plus lower prices, I am 100% for that.

57. Mxyzptlk unregistered

Someone's cranky. You act like Apple executives to a huge leak in your bowl of kiddie puffs or something. Why don't you calm down and be reasonable.

Whats the point of bashing at all is the real question. At the end of the day who really cares...
