The iPhone 5C comes in green, white, blue, pink and yellow and the back and sides of the devices are made from a single part. Phil Schiller said that customers “won’t see seams, or part lines, or joins,” thanks to the hard-coated polycarbonate.
The new iPhone 5C ships with a 4-inch Retina Display, A6 processor, 8MP rear camera just like the iPhone 5 ( iPhone 5 being replaced by the iPhone 5C ). Apple has opted to ship the iPhone 5C with an imprevoed FaceTime HD front camera, designed for improved video calls and…. selfies?
Apple said that the iPhone 5C also comes with support for “more LTE bands that any other smartphone in the world”.
Apple has also created custom cases with a soft-feel silicon rubber that slip onto the handset. The cases, priced at $29 each, also provide an additional color option on top of the regular colors of the iPhone 5c.
Pricing and Availability
A 16GB model will be made available at $99, while a 32GB version is priced at $199. Apple will start taking pre-orders for the iPhone 5c on September 13th, and the device will be available in the US, Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Japan, Singapore, and the UK on September 20th.
