Video shows Apple iPhone 5C shells in five delicious colors

Video shows Apple iPhone 5C shells in five delicious colors
A video posted Friday on YouTube shows the five different color shells that we should see on the budget priced Apple iPhone 5C. In fact, on the video, we learn that the "5C" moniker for the phone comes from the number of different color options that will be available for the device including a pinkish looking red, blue, white, yellow and green. What about the black model we showed you recently? New reports say that the black iPhone 5C probably is fake and at this point, we are going along with that 100%. The five legit colors (except for white) are pastel and we must admit that they seem to blend in nicely with the iOS 7 color scheme. So the "C" in iPhone 5C doesn't stand for Cheap or China. It stands for "Colors".

We have seen a ton of those colorful iPhone 5C shells over the last few months and the monotony should be coming to an end on September 10th when Apple officially introduces the Apple iPhone 5C and the Apple iPhone 5S. The latter has its share of color options and we could see the new full-priced iPhone dressed in black, and gold (or champagne, if you prefer). A recent picture allegedly showing the back of the phone in silver was deemed to be a fake since it did not include the pill shaped dual LED flash that is expected on that handset. At this point, there might be a third color option for the full-priced iPhone 5S, but there is no guarantee that it will be white.

What a year it has been for players of the iPhone speculation guessing game. In January, we even had a rumor about a 4.8 inch model that was probably called the Apple iPhone + that somehow became the iPhone 5 Math because of a wacky translation. We've had the Skittles colored iPhone 5C shells, and the classy champagne look of the Apple iPhone 5S. The fun part is when Apple does make its introductions and we get to see how close the rumors were from the facts.

Well , it's glossy. But at least Apple "made it right", again. "Premium" , and as Alan say: "DELICIOUS"

Apple copied features from Android for it's next OS, it copied the flatness from WP, now they're copying the exterior look of Nokia phones. But if someone rounds a corner, it's lawsuit time.

But Unlike Lumia's this so called iPhone 5C kinda look unattractive, they should have stick with iPhone 4/5 design language which looks pretty attractive in my eyes.

I remember when people used to speculate for months about what new options would be on the next iphone. Now the iphone is so stagnant, that all people have to talk about is what new colors will be available. What happened to ingenuity at Apple?

"Introducing the Apple iPhone 5C!" = iPhone 5.....Cheap, China, Crap.....puke. "But it's only like $500-600 ;)" = :P.....facepalm. "It also comes in many great colors!" = XS.....dies.

Sorry but glossy just makes it look cheap and disgusting. I'd prefer a matte / rubber-esque finish.

5C (Cheap) will not be cheap. And the colors are just a copy of Nokia. 5C will fail

Windows Phone user with no issues with the Apple articles. I'd like to see Windows Phone mentioned more like the do now in the Apps of the month articles but its all good as Nokia gets a lot of coverage here. What I can't stand is the free publicity Apple gets in the news and how they make Steve Jobs appear to be a god. Case in point is the Jobs movie (free publicity for Apple) that rewrites history from a fans biased of view.
