Apple is expected to reveal its cheaper iPhone this month, but in the meantime video footage allegedly showing the iPhone 5C in action has appeared online.
Chinese site C Technology, which BGR claims is at least somewhat reputable, posted the video yesterday, claiming it came from "some friends" (thanks, Google Translate).
The video shows what looks like the iPhone 5C in hot pink or red (the lighting is not great) running iOS 7, with someone tapping around, pinch-and-zooming, and more.
Head to either link above to watch the footage, but do so with a pinch of salt - the haphazardly translated version of C Tech's report makes it clear that even they're not sure if the video is real.
Apple today confirmed that it will hold an event on Sept. 10 at which it's expected to unveil the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C and announce the full release of iOS 7.
The invitation's bright colors could even be a hint meant to refer to the rainbow of hues the iPhone 5C is rumored to be coming in.
Renewed rumors of Sept. 20 and Sept. 27 release dates for the iPhone 5S and 5C, respectively, closely followed that invitation out of the gate today.
The latest iPhone 5C leak may have shown its colorful packaging, though we've got our doubts about that.
The iPhone 5C is expected to come with a plastic shell and downgraded specs compared to its predecessors and the other new iPhone expected on Sept 10.
Rumors put the price anywhere from $300 (£192, AU$331) to $500 (£321, AU$552), significantly cheaper than Apple's high-end iPhone models.
Will it be cheap enough? Regardless, it seems we'll learn more about Apple's cheaper iPhone soon.
