To little surprise, today Apple officially unveiled the long-rumored iPhone 5C. The new variant utilizes different hardware materials and last-generation internals to add a relatively affordable smartphone alternative to its product line, while still keeping the device compatible with the company's many services and features, including iOS 7.

The first major offshoot of the iPhone brand features a hard-coated polycarbonate rear casing that will be available in a number of different colors at launch. Unlike Motorola's Moto X, it doesn't look like customers will have the opportunity to completely customize the appearance of the iPhone 5C, but the option to pick up the device in more than just a few different colors — green, white, blue, pink, and yellow, specifically — is a nice touch, nonetheless.

Hardware wise, don't expect the iPhone 5C to compete directly with the iPhone 5S. The new member of the family is equipped with a 4-inch Retina display, but, in terms of specs, that's about all that the two devices are expected to share. In fact, the iPhone 5C's internals more closely resemble last year's iPhone 5, from the Apple A6 processor to the 8-megapixel rear-facing camera. An improved FaceTime HD camera can be found on the front side of the device.


Apple will also be selling first party silicon rubber cases that are just as colorful as the phone itself, which will cost $29.


The Apple iPhone 5C will be available for $99 on-contract for a 16GB version and $199 for a 32GB model. Unlocked, the 16GB iPhone 5C will cost $549, and the 32GB version will cost $649.


Pre-orders start on September 13th, and both the iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S will be sold starting September 20th in countries around the world, including the United States, Canada, Japan, and the United Kingdom.
