Months ago, leaks had us curious about this interesting iPhone because of its mid-range design construction. It depicts a polycarbonate back which is offered mostly on mid-rangers and all these years, Apple hasn’t had any at all.
This September 10, Apple just officially announced the first iPhone of its class, a true mid-range device that can compete against the Android, WP and Blackberry soldiers. It may seem intruiging what the “C” really stands for but based on the color availability of the device, it should be “Color” and not “Cheap” as it will come a bit pricey but still more affordable than the iPhone 5S.

The iPhone 5C is again set for emerging markets and targets the mid-range category meaning, the specs may fall short but is still very classy and superior. It features a single-tone polycarbonate construction and has a steel frame for its antenna.
Aside from the white version, the device will also come in four more additional color options including Green, Blue, Yellow and Pink which gives meaning to the “C” moniker-“Color”. It may not be the slimmest but it will perfectly suit in the palm of our hands at 8.97 mm thick and 132 grams, quite impressive. Together with the iPhone 5S, the iPhone 5C will ship with iOS 7 out of the box which will include a whole new look, a first for the OS.
The camera is basically the same as the previous iPhone 5 with 8MP Rear Camera shooter capable of Full HD Video Recording and a better HD Facetime Camera with improved 1.9 micron pixels for better performance. The iPhone will come in 16GB and 32GB models at approximately $549 &$649 off contract, a bit pricey. Also available are Soft Silicon Rubber cases in different colors for you to choose at $29 each.
