Could this iPhone 6 concept be a new, cheaper model?

While the iPhone 5C has largely been a bust, one designer has an idea for how Apple could improve on the notion of a new, inexpensive iPhone offering.

In the great tradition of new iPhone concepts just because comes the below take on what a new iPhone 6 could look like. But we're not talking about just any iPhone 6. This is the iPhone 6C series, the follow-up to the inexpensive, colorful iPhone 5C that appealed to... um, I'll get back to you on that part.

And yet, designer Joseph Farahi has mocked up a very nice-looking plastic iPhone here that certainly has more appeal than the actual iPhone 5C.

And given the rumors that the next iteration of the iPhone will come in multiple sizes, a design similar to this could actually be in the works. It just seems very unlikely that it will be touted as a follow-up to the 5C.

Specifically, Farahi imagines an inexpensive iPhone 6 with a 4.7-inch "retina" display, 8-megapixel camera, Touch ID, and a thinner and lighter profile than the 5C.

Check out the video below and let us know in the comments if you think it makes any sense for Apple to take another whack at a new, inexpensive iPhone.
