I guess at this point we’re all tired of the so called “budget iPhone” (aka iPhone 5C) leaks. This thing has been leaked, and most of all faked, all the way to Sunday. Therefore we don’t blame you if you decide to bail on us for the reminder of this article…
However, if you’re still with us you should be interested to know that what is claimed to be the iPhone 5C has just been showcased by a Taiwanese star on its Weibo account. Take a look at the pics and join us after the break for more.
The guy who shared the above pics goes by the name of Jimmy Lin – pretty big star in his home country (Taiwan) and all of Asia. Jimmy is an actor and a singer with numerous Asian awards under its belt, and also a professional race driver (between 1997 and 2011).
So what this means for us? Is this the real deal? Usually big name actors and singers don’t bother with fake shells and other gimmicks. However, one thing we find curious is that Jimmy only showed the back of the device, which could simply be one of the now famous plastic iPhone 5C shells.
Well, what do you think? Real or fake? A celebrity trying to boost its Weibo page-views by any means or a well connected actor/singer/race driver? Let us know in the comments section.
