The iPhone 5C is Apple’s low-cost handset is wrapped in bright polycarbonate. It will come in 5 new color options: white, pink, green, blue and yellow. The 16GB model costs $100 and the 32GB model costs $200 on a two-year contract. The phone comes with all the specs you’d expect to see in a mid-range smartphone, or a high-end smartphone from last year. It has the same A6 chip and 8-megapixel rear camera as the iPhone 5 and the same 4-inch Retina Display as the iPhone 5S.
The new features include a front-facing HD FaceTime camera with backside illumination. The iPhone 5C also supports the most LTE bands than any other currently available smartphone, according to Apple. For the power-hungry, the iPhone 5C also has a slightly larger battery than its predecessor. Apple trotted out a series of custom silicon cases made especially for the 5C. They feature small perforations that expose the original color of the phone. Think of the 5C as a bright plastic, slightly more advanced version of the iPhone 5.
“The iPhone 5C is beautifully, unapologetically plastic,” Jony Ive said in a video shown at the event. You can pre-order the iPhone 5C starting September 13; it will be available in stores on September 20.
