As we’ve previously reported, Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) is going to launch the company’s next generation of iPhone, dubbed the iPhone 5S, but along with it, we’re also likely going to see a new cheaper version of the iPhone which could be named the iPhone 5C. The “C” in the 5C is said to mean colors, and since this phone is targeted towards emerging markets like China and India, it would be available in various colors and priced lower than the flagship phone. This would be the first phone in which Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) would be giving consumers the choice to select colors, apart from the black and white ones.
Martin Hajek, a designer and developer, has created some mockups of the iPhone 5C packaging, but he didn’t stopped there, he also created mockups of the announcement itself (unofficial, of course).
As we’ve seen with earlier reports, the iPhone 5C might come with plastic packaging similar to the iPod Touch. The phone would be displayed in all its full glory in this see-through packaging, just like the iPod Touch.
Will Apple focusing marketing efforts on the iPhone 5C or the iPhone 5S?
It is likely that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) will make a clear distinction between the packaging of the iPhone 5C and the iPhone 5S so that customers are not confused when they’re picking them up. The company would clearly want to make a significant difference in packaging of its flagship phone as compared to the cheaper version. However, what remains to be seen is which phone Apple will concentrate its marketing efforts on. Will the company give more importance to the flagship 5S or the newly born 5C?
Apart from the iPhone 5C packaging mockups, Hajek also treated us with an unofficial preview of the announcement ceremony. The mockup shows how Tim Cook will be presenting the new products at the stage. Also the iPad 5 is thrown in, but it looks as if the iPad 5 will not be unveiled during the same event. September 10th, which is the highly rumored date for both the 5S as well as the 5C, is not that far away.
