As far as leaked Apple devices go, the upcoming plastic so-called iPhone 5C isn’t quite as compelling as a hot next-gen device would be, but because the rumored device represents Apple’s first foray into selling a non-premium iPhone, everyone wants a peak.

Chinese site iApps.im first posted photos showing a pile of pink iPhone 5Cs with color-matched wallpapers, as well as a table full of blue and yellow models with one nice, clear closeup of a blue handset. (The photos have been removed, but 9to5Mac snagged them first.)

The phones don’t look terrible, although they most definitely do not scream “high end”; they look almost cute, which is possibly what Apple was going for. It’s a clever strategy, if you think about it--to make an analogy from the automobile market, instead of making something that looks like, say, a mid-range sedan (i.e., economical but terribly unexciting), Apple went with something more like a Fiat or SmartCar that has a lot of immediate aesthetic appeal but won’t ever be mistaken for a luxury car.

The packaging is reminiscent of iPod touch packaging, which puts the device on top of its box and under a hard, clear plastic shell to show it off.

Of course, this is all still grist for the rumor mill, but it’s nearly a foregone conclusion that Apple is producing a plastic, less expensive iPhone. We’ll likely get all the real details straight from the source when Apple holds an event on September 10th.

IF the 5C is for real, it will sell like crazy because plenty of people still buy the iPhone 4 and its 4 years old. All people really care about is price. They dont really care whats on the inside: only how much they have to pay.
