The low cost iPhone will be called ______?

What do you think the low cost iPhone would be called?

It is almost certain that we will have an "iPhone 5S" but what about the cheaper iPhone? Can't be the iPhone mini, cause it won't be smaller... I'm thinking Apple might use the colorful nature of the new phone as the descriptor. I'm not really sure how though....

iPhone Color is the easiest way to differentiate the line.

I could see Apple calling it the 5C, to state it's commonality with the 5 line, but differentiate it from the high end 5S.

iPhone 5C. That's my guess.

Maybe the plastic low cost one will simply be named iPhone and the new metal one will be the iPhone Pro.

You know like the MacBook and MacBook Pro were.

Idk just a thought...

EDIT: Oh God I just thought what that would look like abbreviated "iPP" hahah

Yup', iPhone S seems good to me, as it sends back to slimness. Plus it's a huge "____ you!" to Samsung

iPhone Color (or Colour) sounds like a good choice.
