Same internals as the iPhone 5 with only 8 and 16 gb models. This will bring down cost.

Pretty sure it'll be the same as the 5 apart from maybe camera. Hopefully they'll go with the A6 processor still.

Probably something like the 4s in a plastic case I'd guess

Can anybody still justify selling an 8GB smartphone? There's no point in a video camera or Photo Stream on an 8GB iPhone since you really have about 6GB.

My hope is they start at 16GB and move up to 32GB, then the iPhone 5S starts at 32GB at $199. Then I can get me a 64GB iPhone 5S at $299 and be oh-so-happy.

I don't see it only coming with 8GB of space. As large as apps have gotten, and as large as camera images are, I see this going with at LEAST 16GB. Anything less would be pretty disappointing. Otherwise, I do see it as having similar internals to the iPhone 5.

Traditionally, when a newer iPhone launches, the previous model is $100 less in retail. That would make the 5 sell for $550 retail (assuming it goes untouched). If they replace it with a plastic back, I would HOPE that we see this phone for under $400, full retail.

16 GB model only. 8 MP camera without iPhone 5's improvements over the 4S. Same 1.3 GHz A6 of the iPhone 5, with 1 GB of RAM.
It would keep the same screen as the iPhone 5, while perhaps dropping LTE.

For people that use the phone as a phone first 8gb is ok. They don't play games and movies on their phone.

There's no way they're gonna drop LTE.

It is obviously that low-cost iPhone will come with a dirt-cheap plastic shell.

Since this phone is intended for emerging markets (something that pretty much everyone seems to forget) I expect it to launch without LTE.

I expect it to be an iPhone 5 with a plastic shelling, minus LTE, with an extended battery life.

I wouldn't be surprised if the iP5c came with 8gb and 16gb.

Then the ip5s coming with BASE 32gb.

They already have an iPhone 5 with 16GB, it's called an iPhone 5 with 16GB. Why would they go to the expense of creating a whole new case (manufacturing, design, production) just to create an iPhone 5 they already have in production and sell now?

If this iPhone 5C exists, it won't be merely a cheaper iPhone 5S with older internal parts, if that were the case it would possibly (probably?) outsell the 5S and Apple will not risk losing a single sale of the 5S to something less expensive (it could kill premium priced smart phones altogether, which they won't risk). If they offer a less expensive model, as they did with the iPod Touch, there is precedent here - they'd use the current case, offer less storage, and sell it as the entry model (without changing the name).

My guess is that they've figured out some way to create a phone so radically different it warranted a new case and model designation, and I can't wait to see what they've come up with next month.
