The Chinese technology blog C Technology over the past week posted purported shots of the iPhone 5C packaging as well as an alleged video of the fully assembled and powered on red plastic iPhone 5C variant, running the stock iOS 7 Safari browser.
Monday morning, the blog posted another video apparently depicting a light blue iPhone 5C in action, running iOS 7. The short clip takes us through the Home screen, user interface transitions, Safari tabs, the Lock screen and other aspects of Apple’s redesigned mobile operating system…
I’m sorry, the video isn’t embeddable so you’ll have to hop over to C Technology and come back here to join us in comments.
UPDATE 1: we have a YouTube version up, courtesy of the French blog NowhereElse.fr. The re-captured clip has some frames missing – that’s why the animations don’t appear as smooth as you’d expect – so make sure to check out the YouKu (China’s YouTube) smoother version before commenting.
UPDATE 2: the C Technology website appears to be currently down. Good thing NowhereElse immediately captured that video.
Your key takeaway, based on C Technology’s original clip: the iOS 7 user interface appears to run smoothly on this supposed iPhone 5C unit. This matches up with analyst reports that describe the device as basically an iPhone 5 hardware redesigned around a polycarbonate plastic enclosure.
There’s definitely an A6 chip inside this thing.
