Apple will very likely announce the iPhone 5C on Sept. 10, just under a month from now. We’ve already seen the phone in video and in plenty of leaked images. Today, however, we’re being treated to a huge gallery of high-resolution photos of the green model, thanks to Sonny Dickson. We’re only looking at the shell again, we can see that there aren’t any internal parts yet, but we like that we finally have crisp images to evaluate.
We can see the 3.5mm headphone jack next to the Lightning port on the bottom of the device, presumably next to a speaker grill, and the glossy plastic finish. There’s also a camera on the back that flanks a single LED flash. The iPhone 5S, by comparison, will have a dual-LED flash. While this shows the green model, we’re also expecting white, blue, red and yellow versions.
The iPhone 5C may launch in the U.S., though we expect Apple’s big priority is to launch it in emerging markets such as China. Tim Cook has met with China Mobile’s president, and it could be the first iPhone ever to launch on that carrier’s proprietary TD-SCDMA network. We’ll know more on September 10.
