    Australian writer Sonny Dickson has shared some images of what he claims are the volume buttons for Apple's upcoming low-cost plastic-shelled iPhone, dubbed the "iPhone 5C." The buttons are shown in bright shades of green, yellow, red, and blue, matching previous descriptions of the device.

    The pill-shaped button design, which deviates from the round volume buttons found in the iPhone 5, matches up with design drawings leaked in June. Based on those drawings and other component leaks, MacRumors released renderings of the low-cost iPhone that clearly show what the volume buttons of the device could look like when fully assembled.

    Though leaked component images and videos of the iPhone 5C have been surfacing at a rapid pace over the last couple of months, the prototype designs have thus far lacked full cut-outs for power and volume buttons.

    In addition to a polycarbonate shell and a multitude of bright colors, Apple's low-cost iPhone is said to feature rear curved edges and a slightly thicker design. It is also said to share components with the current iPhone 5 and may be priced anywhere from $450 to $550.

    Over the weekend, news hit that Apple would unveil its next generation iPhone at a September 10 event, but it remains unclear if the low-cost iPhone will also be revealed at that time. Additional images of the volume buttons in all four colors can be seen on Dickson's website.

    Yeah... those look like parts of toys. Take the iPhone 5C to Toys 'R' Us. It belongs there with the rest of the plastic.

    White rendering: looked pretty cool.
    All other color renderings: pretty horrible.

    Here's hoping the finished product launches with colors totally different than all the renderings going around.

    Agreed fully. The coloured buttons are especially tragic

    They just look like 3D renderings to me, not actual pictures.

    Nice colors. I wonder if Apple will include an option to have Windows XP installed on the 5C ;)

    Nothing wrong with the long as there is SOMETHING planned to address the top model (Screen size cough......). A finger print sensor by itself ain't gonna satisfy anyone.

    lol so what are we supposed to believe that they're marketing this to infants with an app that simulates a rattling toy (whatever you call those things).

    There is indeed something Fischer-Priceish about these images... They seem too garish to be on an Apple product, but perhaps the colors are right and we're heading back to the floral iMac days.

    Wall Street wanted their cheap plastic phone. Looks like they're getting it.

    what's wrong with that? children own iPods and, these days, cell phones. makes sense to offer them a less expensive alternative than a high end, fragile iPhone. it will double as the less expensive model for china and India.


    oh lord, so dramatic. pouty, even. you do recall the iPhone 3G/S had a plastic shell...

    this is going to shake the android market. And for those ones in the first world, too classy as to buy something of plastic, you can always buy an iphone 5S.

    it would me, along with the usual hardware improvement that have always come with a "tock" update. why should this time be any different?


    the solution is for you to stop visiting websites that specialize in leaks, no?
