    Sonny Dickson who has a history of leaking parts, including some of the iPhone 5C casings, has dropped a new photo showing the colors of the iPhone 5C. Looks pretty legit. If so, these don't look so bad. Product leaks never cast the product in the best light. This is good work by Dickson, who brings some nice high resolution photography to the table. Apple is the best at this stuff. If these look ok, wait until the real deal.

    Am I sold on the colors? Not sure, but I'm likely not buying one, other than for review. Oh crap, that's right, I have two iPhones I need to buy next month.

    Thoughts on the iPhone 5C colors?

    Rumor has it, these aren't coming to the US. These are reserved for the Asian market.

    I've seen both sides of that discussion. Not sure who or what to believe at this point. Without any knowledge, I would say that it makes too much sense for Apple not to introduce the iPhone 5C in the US. It allows them an opportunity cut costs on low-end device sales. It's got to cost them a bundle selling high end iPhones cheap, simply because a new flagship has been released. I could be wrong.

    If it were for Asia only, how do they handle the announcement?

    While I intend to get the flagship device, I agree with you about the color choices.


    I'm wondering why there's not a black 5C. Maybe there is but it's just not shown in the picture in order to highlight the colors? I would think a cheaper iPhone in black would be in demand more so than most other color options. But then again, they're the marketing genius, not me, lol. :)

    Black doesn't go with the vibe they're shoot for with this group of colors. There a black iPod touch 5G, but maybe they are trying to keep things as pastel as iOS 7?:confused:

    Here's a good article from the person responsible for the leaks. According to him, there will be no black iPhone 5C. The photo below is a fake.

    There's no black or gold to avoid confusion between the 5S & 5C.

    If there's a white 5C then my assumption is that they've a reason to believe that that 5S buyer won't object as much to the confusion or that the bump in sales in the white 5C is worth creating the confusion.

    Quite surprising that the current crop of iPod Touches look to have a better build quality.

    I agree. I think if they really are making a 5C, it will be available in black and that it will be the most popular choice.

    I also think these may be meant for the prepaid crowd.

    Hard to say if the video is real or not, if it is Apple is having some pretty serious issues keeping these under wraps. I question the video because of the pink casing instead of the standard red that we have seen.

    No sure this photo is legit or maybe it's just for a Foreign market. There is no serial number and FCC info on the back just the word iPhone.

    These also looks to be some third party cases.
