A photo allegedly showing a large number of iPhone 5Cs being tested was posted to the Weibo account of a quality control employee at Pegatron. The photo has since been removed.
The following quote was attached to the image: “The low-end iPhone 5C to be launched for Chinese consumers in September doesn’t look much different than the Xiaomi Phone 2, right?”
Engadget notes that this kind of testing setup has been seen before during factory tours, and the devices do resemble other leaked photos we’ve all seen, so the photo from the most likely former Pegatron employee seems like it could be legit.
The iPhone 5C is expected to be introduced alongside Apple’s new flagship iPhone 5S handset on September 10th.
