iPhone 5C Price

Although widely expected to launch as a cheaper alternative to the iPhone 5S, there hasn’t been much news as to how much the budget iPhone will actually cost. 

However, that changed recently when a prominent commenter on Chinese social media site Weibo said the iPhone 5C would be priced at 3000 yuan SIM-free. This would mean the budget iPhone would launch with a UK price tag of around £320.


This was further supported by KGI analyst and notorious Apple tipster Mingchi Kuo, who said:

"We've learned that the iPhone 5 line will be terminated from 4Q13, while the iPhone 4S line will carry on. From this, we infer that iPhone 5C is launched to replace iPhone 4. In order words, the 5C model will be positioned as midrange. We forecast its retail price to be US$400-500."

If you look at the prices of other recently released mid-range handsets from rival manufacturers like Samsung and HTC, this £320 price tag for the iPhone 5C fits well. The HTC One Mini is £380, the Samsung Galaxy S4 mini is £350 and the Nokia Lumia 820 is £320 in comparison.
