Apple’s iPhone 5c has not exactly been a model device from Cupertino when it comes to sales figures. We have brought you word that Apple is apparently sitting on 3 million unsold iPhone 5c units, with disappointing sales figures in China, not to mention lagging behind the iPhone 5s overall. There are whispers going around that Apple is going to introduce a new 8GB version of the iPhone 5c.
Apparently, they are working on this new version of the iPhone 5c so that it can launch as early as this week, which could very well be one of the last ditch attempts to revive flagging sales of the handset that comes with a plastic back. Whispers of this particular change in direction made its first appearance in an alleged internal email from German wireless carrier O2, where the smartphone has been listed to go on sale at €509 a pop, which is €60 more affordable than the existing €569 16GB iPhone 5c.
It remains to be seen on whether the availability of the 8GB iPhone 5c will have any effect on the iPhone 4s’ availability, considering how that is the only iPhone available at this point in time that comes with 8GB of internal memory. What do you think of this particular rumor?
