WASHINGTON: As we are closing towards the launch of Apple’s first devices of the year, now a new report claims that Low cost iPhone 5C to feature an 8-megapixel camera and Retina Display of iPhone 5.

According to the reports earlier this year iPhone 5C will have almost the same features like iPhone 5.

Few days before a report indicated that Apple iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C will be coming in the month of September.

Now a new report claims that Apple will use the same 8-megapixel camera found in the iPhone 5 with its upcoming low-cost iPhone. It seems the budged iPhone has a lot in common with the iPhone 5.

We know the low-cost iPhone is coming in September. We have also seen multiple leaked images claiming to show Apple’s budget iPhone. We still have no concrete evidence on what Apple plans on calling the handset, but it has been referred to as budget iPhone, low-cost iPhone, and most recently iPhone 5C. The smartphone is expected to be significantly cheaper than Apple’s usual pricing for its flagship iPhone, but a new leak suggests that it seems to have more in common with the iPhone 5.

A new report claims that the iPhone 5C will be very similar to the iPhone 5, more so than the lower-priced iPhone 4S.

The smartphone will use the same 4-inch Retina Display found on the iPhone 5 and a leaked image of the camera used in the iPhone 5C reportedly shows the same sapphire crystal-covered camera used in the iPhone 5. To keep costs down, Apple has ditched aluminum for polycarbonate. The smartphone is expected to come in multiple colors, similar to the iPod touch and iPod nano. It will also be a little taller and thicker than the iPhone 5 due to its polycarbonate case. It is believed that Apple might replace the iPhone 5 with the iPhone 5C and use the same parts so it does not have to source new materials to build the handset.

The iPhone 5C is expected to be priced between $450 and $550. It is estimated that those prices would become lower with carrier subsidies, and would drop to $99 and below. It seems that Apple is going to follow the growing trend of focusing on the cameras inside its smartphones. The iPhone 5S is expected to include a 12-megapixel camera with a dual-LED flash and improved low-light photography. If the rumors are true, its mid-range and possibly $99 smartphone will include a high-end 8-megapixel camera, which is unheard of in that price range. We’ll have to wait and see how this pans out. It’s always best to take all Apple rumors with a big grain of salt.
