It might seem too early for the next iPhone rumour but we have quite a substantial image-leak for the next iteration of the iPhone 5C. If the images are to be believed what we are seeing here looks like the rear housing of iPhone 6C. With the bright coloured back it very well qualifies as the successor to the iPhone 5C which was introduced in 2013.
The phone is rumoured to be launched by the end of this year and should be released alongside the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus. Other than the images, previous leaks suggest that the phone will feature the same 4-inch screen that the previous iPhone 5C sported.
The iPhone 6C might be powered by the A8 chipset, the same chipset that powers iPhone 6 whereas the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus might get the newer A9 SoC. In the images iPhone 5c and the purported iPhone 6c look pretty similar but the new version shows room for a dual-LED flash and a distinctive dual-speaker grill.
That said, these images cannot be taken too seriously as these are just initial leaks that can only be substantialised by further leaks on similar lines. The phone will be cheaper than the all-metal iPhone 6 but the consumer will have to compromise with the extremely plasticky rear panel.
