iPhone 5c announced: Apples not so cheap budget iPhone
Along with the recently announced iPhone 5s, Apple announced its new budget phone, the iPhone 5c. This phone is basically the original iPhone 5 but with a plastic shell.
The device features an A6 processor, 8MP camera and steel frame that’s coated in plastic. That frame will also act as an antenna for the radio. It gets an update on the front Facetime camera however, bumping it up to HD capability.
Unlike the 5s this will come in 5 colours, white, pink, yellow, blue, green and will start at £469 for 16GB and £549 for 32GB. We think this could be a missed opportunity for Apple as this still puts the phones in the premium price range but with last years technology. Currently you can buy the HTC One with 32GB of memory off Amazon for £424.49, so hopefully we will see the 5c prices drop a bit in the next few months, though this is doubtful.
