Apple announced the iPhone 5c today. While we knew from rumors it would be colorful on the outside, little was known about its inside. Here are the full tech specs for the device.

As a budget model, the iPhone 5c doesn’t have all the glam of the iPhone 5s, but it is still a very capable phone. It’s basically an iPhone 5 with a polycarbonate shell and few notable upgrades that give users a few extras without driving up the price of the phone.

The most radical change is in the casing, which is now a hard polycarbonate instead of brushed aluminum. There’s also an improved LTE radio that supports up to 13 LTE bands.  It’ll ship with iOS 7 and a few niceties like a Home screen and wallpaper with colors that complement the exterior casing.
