Could This Be What Apple's Low-Cost 'iPhone 5C' Will Look Like?
High resolution images of Apple's anticipated low-cost "iPhone 5C" are claimed to have surfaced online, all of which indicate that the upcoming iDevice will feature a plastic outer shell, a built-in camera and flash, and speakers at the base of the handset alongside a Lightning port. Published at insider Sonny Dickson's website, the collection of images show off a purported iPhone 5C handset in detail.

It's thought that the less expensive model will help the Cupertino, Calif. company gain a greater share of the smartphone market in developing nations, such as China and India. Of course, a low-cost iPhone could also encourage consumers in the U.S. to purchase Apple's smartphone instead of a lower-priced Android-powered handset. If an iPhone 5C is indeed in the cards, most expect the smartphone to be announced at some point in fall. For a full gallery of iPhone 5C images at their original resolution, head over to Sonny Dickson's website. We'll keep you updated with further information concerning the low-cost iPhone handset as we receive it.
