The new iPhone 5C is finally official. After months of rumor and speculation, Apple has opted to introduce its latest smartphone today at a special event in Cupertino. After detailing the latest updates in iOS7, and noting that Apple has been "hard at work completing iOS7" in time for its September 18th release, Apple's Phll Shiller unveiled the new iPhone 5C. It looks identical to the leaks and case parts we've seen recently, with a plastic back and a variety of colors.
The back and sides of the device are made from a single part, with green, white, blue, red, and yellow coloring. Shiller claims you "won't see seams, or part lines, or joins," and the device is made from hard-coated polycarbonate. Apple has also created custom cases with a soft-feel silicon rubber that enclose the handset. The cases also provide an additional color option on top of the regular colors of the iPhone 5C.
Like the iPhone 5, Apple is shipping the iPhone 5C with a 4-inch Retina display, and its A6 processor. It has the same 8-megapixel rear camera, but Apple has opted for an improved FaceTime HD camera at the front. The 5C includes support for "more LTE bands that any other smartphone in the world," according to Apple. In an introduction video detailing the process of the design and engineering process for the iPhone 5C, Jony Ive says the "iPhone 5C is beautifully, unapologetically plastic."
