Apple’s forthcoming low-cost iPhone, perhaps known as the iPhone 5C, may come designed with the same 8-megapixel sapphire crystal-covered camera set in the iPhone 5, reports a Chinese tech site. The site has shared a picture of what is said to be the iPhone 5C camera module, which appears like the current iPhone 5 camera module.
While the affordable iPhone will possibly include the 8-megapixel camera of the iPhone 5, Apple’s iPhone 5S is likely to get an improved 12-megapixel camera that will offer enhanced low light photography. Though the iPhone 5C is called the cheap iPhone, it looks that it will share other features with Apple’s present iPhone 5 and upcoming iPhone 5S, offering a few of the same parts in a less costly plastic shell. Using the same components prevents Apple from having to source new items and speculation have recommended that the iPhone 5C could even be designed to function as an alternative to the iPhone 5.
According to leaked specifications and supposed casing photos, the iPhone 5C is likely to include a plastic shell in several bright colors. The case design looks to be more rounded than the current iPhone 5 and it’s likely to be slightly taller and larger to accommodate the thicker cheap shell, as seen in the renderings commissioned by MacRumors recently.
