The iPhone 5 release date is fast approaching and the internet is abuzz with news, speculation and trivia.
Meanwhile pictures and videos of the expected products to be launched are getting leaked on the internet. A new YouTube video has now emerged which claims to be the iPhone 5C.
Released by insider Sonny Dickson the video does a quick comparison between the already available iPhone 5 and the soon to be released ‚Äúlow-cost‚ÄĚ iPhone 5C.
On Saturday, a report from¬†All Things D¬†cited ‚Äúsources‚ÄĚ noting that Apple planned to hold a September 10th¬†event to¬†announce¬†a new iPhone 5. Now we may actually have video images of the device.
The video is almost completely silent with no words spoken, though you can hear the sound of the upcoming handset‚Äôs plastic shell tapping against the table. The video also shows the new case next to several older iPhone models and it also provides a side-by-side comparison with the current iPhone 5.
The iPhone 5C appears to be slightly taller and thicker than the iPhone 5 ‚ÄĒ and therefore the iPhone 5S, in all likelihood ‚ÄĒ and it will also reportedly feature more modest specs.
The debate was whether to have a bigger screen or not. Many of the analysts and users stick by the notion of “slim is beautiful.” The iPhone 5C seems to mark a departure from that mindset.
That’s about all there is to learn from the clip, other than adding to the evidence that such an iPhone design is apparently real and colorful. As the iPhone 5C is rumored to be more affordable in addition to featuring a plastic exterior with different color options.
The new iPhone would hit store shelves in time for the crucial holiday season. The iPhone 5C is expected to feature a lowered set of hardware features which will lower the retail cost for the device.
Reportedly, Apple is planning to launch cheaper models starting at $99. Despite lower hardware specs the low-cost iPhone device will likely feature iOS 7.
That means the device may be slower than the upcoming iPhone 5S but it will still run most of the same applications without much hassle. Unfortunately a retina display is not believed to be included for higher end app output and general screen rendering.
Howver, it is still not known what features Apple is going to sacrifice in order to make the phone more affordable. Most analysts agree that Siri could be abandoned to accomplish the price objective. In terms of hardware the phone is expected to come with a 8 MP rear camera, 1 GB RAM and in variants of 8, 16, 32 and 64 GB of memory.
The ‚ÄúC‚ÄĚ in the new iPhone 5 device is believed to stand for ‚ÄúColor‚ÄĚ because of the devices various color options that will be announced on September 10. Apple is expected to offer the iPhone 5C in at least five initial colors, reports Inquisitr.
With the iPhone 5 release date fast approaching users can expect to see more leaks and speculation in the coming days.
