iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C casings shown off in new hands-on video

A new hands-on video with the iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S has emerged online, showing off the rear casing of each device in Full 1080p HD.

Giving both cases a thorough walkthrough, the iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S are shown alongside the current iPhone 5 flagship.

Coming courtesy of AppAdvice, the parts certainly lineup with those seen in the flurry of leaked videos and pictures that have emerged in the past few months.

Of course, they may well still be fakes that have been made a factory somewhere and not actually resemble the final iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C products at all. However, the amount of coverage these cases have received seem to support that these will be close to final designs.

The gold iPhone 5S case has the elongated flash slot that should house the rumoured dual LED flash, which will complement the 13-megapixel rear camera said to be inside the next flagship.

From the exterior it seems that the iPhone 5S isn’t dissimilar to the iPhone 5 as expected.

The iPhone font on the rear of both the iPhone 5C and 5S seems to be thinner than the iPhone 5, suggesting Apple may be changing the design a little for its next batch of smartphones.

Both smartphones are tipped to launch at an Apple event held on September 10, which will also see iOS 7 released to the public.

Earlier this month, a claimed iPhone 5C press shot leaked online from a Russian retailer. Tipped to have a 4-inch screen, the mid-range device should have a plastic casing and be priced around £320 to rival the Samsung Galaxy S4 mini and HTC One mini.

The blue casing of the budget iPhone 5C is shown off in this latest hands-on video, but it is suggested that it will launch in a range of 6 – 8 colours when it is released later this year.
