An email from the firm simple states "The new iPhone 5C will be announced today". (See also: iPhone 5C vs iPhone 5S comparison review: what's the difference between iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S?)

The most interesting case is the Cristal Hard Shell which is totally clear and Luvvitt's images show all angles of the rumoured iPhone 5C with a white plastic casing.

The screen as 6 rows of icons suggesting the display is 4 in just like the current iPhone 5. The headphone port, Lightnight connector and speaker are all found on the bottom, too - as per leaked images of the device.

We'll be bringing you live coverage of Apple's event which starts tonight at 6pm BST where the tech giant is expected to launch the iPhone 5S, iPhone 5C and iOS 7. (See also: iPhone 5C vs iPhone 5S comparison review: what's the difference between iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S?)
