Rumours were making round for long about the 8GB variant of Apple iPhone 5C smartphone and now the much awaited variant is officially here!

There are no other changes in terms of features, except for the drop in storage capacity. Key features of Apple iPhone 5C are:

  • 4-inch Retina IPS LCD display (640×1136 pixels)
  • 8MP rear camera with LED flash
  • Apple A6 chipset
  • 1.2MP front-facing camera
  • Colour variants- Green, Blue, White, Pink and Yellow

The 5C sports a hard-coated polycarbonate body which makes it a bit heavier than iPhone 5. The phone was launched globally in September last year along with 5S. However both the devices were launched in India in November with a price tag of Rs. 42,000 and Rs. 53,500 respectively.

The move of introducing a low memory variant is intended to boost sales of the device. The company recently started selling back 8GB variant of its popular iPhone 4 in India to capture the market share.
