A picture has surfaced on Chinese forum WeiPhone showing off the plastic packaging for an unknown iPhone model dubbed “iPhone 5C.” This is the first time the name has appeared and is leading to a lot of speculation as to just what the “C” could stand for.
While we have been hearing a lot about the iPhone 5S which is expected to launch this fall, we’ve been seeing numerous leaks of a plastic body device which most people have been referring to as the “budget iPhone.” Seeing as we have seen the parts in numerous colors this is leading to some speculation that “iPhone 5C” could stand for “iPhone 5 Color,” but it is really anyone’s guess.
The seemingly random pic could be dismissed if not for the fact it came from the WeiPhone forums which have been a fairly reliable source for iPhone rumors in the past. As both the iPhone 5S and budget iPhone are expected to launch alongside one another in Sept. we don’t have too long to wait to discover the solution to this mystery. Stay tuned.
