Packaged iPhone 5C Surfaces Again in Multiple Colors, Video Shows Powered-On Unit

Following recent photos of Apple's alleged iPhone 5C shown in its packaging, as well as the quick-start guide, SIM eject tool and other paperwork to be included in the packaging, several more photos and a video have surfaced showing similar devices and packages.

First, Chinese site iApps.im has shared two new photos, one showing a blue iPhone 5C partially unpackaged and a second showing yellow, blue and white iPhone 5C units in their packages.

The first video of an alleged fully assembled, powered on iPhone 5C has also surfaced on Chinese technology blog C Technology [Google Translate] (via Sim Only Radar). The 50-second video shows a red, plastic device running what appears to be Safari on iOS 7, with pinch-to-zoom capabilities as well as responsive scrolling. The shape and two-tone color of the phone are consistent with previous leaks, although the low-resolution video and lack of any views other than from the front make it difficult to assess whether it is indeed a legitimate iPhone 5C or another device wrapped in a colored bumper or shell.


Finally, C Technology has also posted a solo photo showing a green iPhone 5C in its packaging, in line with other photos from the past few days although without a sticker illustrating the iOS 7 home screen on a color-matched background.

Apple's iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S are both expected to be revealed at a media event on September 10, with the two new devices expected to be released in the first wave of markets on September 20.

I thought plastic was for cheap phones only

It is. Its targeting low income or those who had to buy a Samsung.

For everything else, iphone 5S
