Apple has come up with a cheaper iPhone 5C that has a plastic body and is slightly thicker than its new flagship iPhone 5S.

Available in pink, blue, yellow, green and white, the iPhone 5C has a polycarbonate exterior, made of the same material as the ones used on Samsung Galaxy devices, though the iPhone 5C's shell is crafted over a steel reinforced interior.

The iPhone 5C shares many similar specifications of the current iPhone 5, including the A6 processor, 4-inch Retina touchscreen display, and 8-megapixel rear camera.

It is slightly bigger than both the iPhone 5 and 5S, at 1.3mm thicker and 20g heavier. It also lacks the new fingerprint sensor on the iPhone 5S, and does not come in 64GB storage capacity models.

Singapore is among some of the first countries in the world to launch the iPhone 5C on Sept 20, and users can place pre-orders from Sept 13 at the Apple Online Store. The iPhone 5C will be available for $848 (16GB) and $988 (32GB).
