A picture has emerged which seems to confirm the name – and indeed existence – of Apple’s long-rumoured budget iPhone.
Appearing on Chinese website WeiPhone, the picture shows a box of retail plastic packaging bearing the name iPhone 5C. The ‘C’ could relate to the phone reportedly coming in a choice of colours.
The packaging being plastic could also signify the materials used in the handset, which is rumoured to have a plastic backing. Also noticeable is the lack of a front to the boxes, leading to speculation that it will have a clear front casing allowing customers to see and choose the colour of the phone.
The budget iPhone is expected to be launched alongside the iPhone 5S later this year.
