Could this be the cheap and cheerful iPhone 5C, breaking cover on video ahead of tonight’s expected official unvieling?

Spotted by Phone Arena over on the Youku Chinese video hosting site, the 15 second clip shows a handset seemingly running Apple’s iOS 7 operating system, in an iPhone-sized handset that looks to be cased in baby-blue plastic.

The user swipes through some iPhone homescreens before opening up the Safari browser, and then that’s your lot. No multi-angle view, no close-ups.

Sure, it looks like the real-deal – the cheap handset is said to be cased in colourful plastic, teased by Apple itself with tonight’s event invite tagline stating to expect something to “brighten everyone’s day”.

But then, when you’ve got the latest, most keenly anticipated Apple product of the last 12 months sitting opposite you, in full working order, you manage only to grab a fifteen second clip? Fishy, right? It’s almost as if the poster didn’t want us to get a good look at the device. Like it’s a fake or something, a modified iPhone 5 perhaps?.

Hmm. Well, with only a few hours to go until Apple open their toybox themselves, we’ll soon know for sure what’s hitting their stores. Check back at 6pm BST for all the launch day details.
