Photos of Potential 'iPhone 5C' Volume Buttons Surface

Australian writer Sonny Dickson has shared some images of what he claims are the volume buttons for Apple’s upcoming low-cost plastic-shelled iPhone, dubbed the "iPhone 5C." The buttons are shown in bright shades of green, yellow, red, and blue, matching previous descriptions of the device.

The pill-shaped button design, which deviates from the round volume buttons found in the iPhone 5, matches up with design drawings leaked in June. Based on those drawings and other component leaks, MacRumors released renderings of the low-cost iPhone that clearly show what the volume buttons of the device could look like when fully assembled.

Though leaked component images and videos of the iPhone 5C have been surfacing at a rapid pace over the last couple of months, the prototype designs have thus far lacked full cut-outs for power and volume buttons.

In addition to a polycarbonate shell and a multitude of bright colors, Apple's low-cost iPhone is said to feature rear curved edges and a slightly thicker design. It is also said to share components with the current iPhone 5 and may be priced anywhere from $450 to $550.

Over the weekend, news hit that Apple would unveil its next generation iPhone at a September 10 event, but it remains unclear if the low-cost iPhone will also be revealed at that time. Additional images of the volume buttons in all four colors can be seen on Dickson's website.

maybe iPhone 5C means iPhone 5 Children's edition.

Yeah... those look like parts of toys. Take the iPhone 5C to Toys 'R' Us. It belongs there with the rest of the plastic.

iPhone 5C....made for 10 year olds that want iPhones. Comes preloaded with Disney games, and Angry Birds.

You people need to get over yourselves.

Really.

Hey Apple. Just b/c the phone is cheaper doesn't mean you have to make it look cheap.

Who would pay $450 something that looks like a some plastic junk at the bottom of a toddler's toy bin?

What the hell is going on at Apple? Really. Even the Mac Pro is Plastic Fantastic now.

:apple:

WTF? :confused: The new MacPro isn't plastic.

White rendering: looked pretty cool.
All other color renderings: pretty horrible.

Here's hoping the finished product launches with colors totally different than all the renderings going around.
