Is This the Fabled Plastic iPhone?

By Sam Gibbs on at

An image of the rear of a budget plastic iPhone has cropped up again, this time with all the official markings on the back, including America's FCC's stamp of approval. Is this the iPhone 5C? Or is someone having a big old laugh at the expense of the legions of iPhone fanboys foaming at the mouth?

The image appeared on Chinese site Weibo, just like the previous leak of the alleged iPhone 5C packaging, and certainly looks just like all the rumoured iPhone images we've seen recently. Of course, it could be absolutely rubbish, but the mountain of rumours is starting to convert bullshit into potential gold here. We're not there yet, though, so take this latest addition with an enormous pinch of salt. [Weibo via iClarified via SlashGear]
