iPhone 5C: part leaked and packaging imagined

The iPhone 5C, the alleged name for Apple’s alleged upcoming plastic smartphone, has allegedly made a public appearance. Well, part of it has, at least.

A user of Chinese social network Weibo posted an image of what they claim is the iPhone 5C’s front panel, fresh off the production line. It looks… well, it looks quite a lot like the front panel of the current iPhone 5. Exciting times!

Might the 5C's box look like this?

iPhone 5C concept packaging

Meanwhile, Netherlands-based 3D modeller Martin Hajek has knocked up some rather fetching concept packaging for the iPhone 5C, posting images of the renders to his Instagram feed and probably fooling a lot of people into thinking he has some kind of inside line to Cupertino.

The images are based on leaked shots of the 5C’s casing and, yes, front panel, and they’re pretty convincing. Don’t be overly surprised if the actual packaging resembles Hajek’s concepts.
