EE has lopped a hefty slice off the asking price of the iPhone 5C, in the week that next-gen iPhone supply-chain leaks started to approach the feverish levels of 2013.
Until 6pm tomorrow (April 28th), the carrier is waiving the £119.99 upfront fee when customers sign up for the iPhone 5C on a two-year contract at £26.99 per month.
Along with 1,000 minutes and 2GB of 4G internet data per month, the offer, which applies across all colour options, also gets you unlimited texts.
Ditching metal and aluminium for a super-light polycarbonate construction that means it’s the lightest iPhone so far, the iPhone 5C's spec sheet takes in a strapping A6 processor and 16GB of storage.
In a sop to smartphone fans fed up of their phones’ sub-par longevity, a long-life battery is on board too, alongside an enhanced eight-megapixel camera with 1080 HD video recording.
The price cut on the iPhone 5C comes after a week marked by a series of claimed leaks around the iPhone 6.
Perhaps most illuminating, though, were photos of the forthcoming phone’s front panel, which seemed to confirm that Apple will bring a larger handset to market this year with a smaller bezel to make for the bigger display.
A video of the iPhone 6's case also surfaced, courtesy of perennial thorn in Apple’s side Sonny Dickson, and hinted that the ‘sleep’ button could be repositioned this time round but that the design will once again be largely unchanged.
