As September 10 grows nearer, it’s seeming more and more like Apple(a aapl) will be announcing the rumored iPhone 5C alongside the expected iPhone 5S. New leaked images, once again courtesy of blogger Sonny Dickson, show colorful volume buttons in the same varying shades as the iPhone 5C’s case.

Little is known about the iPhone 5C other than that it is believed to be Apple’s budget-friendly alternative to the iPhone 5S. Early rumors placed the phone at an unsubsidized price of around $400, while newer rumors show that the phone may wind up costing buyers a bit more.

No new information accompanies these images, so the buttons aren’t proof positive that the phone even exists. It is still entirely possible that all of these images are fakes, or from an abandoned design concept. But if they are real, they suggest the iPhone 5C will be sporting an array of colorful buttons to match its bright, colorful casing.

Apple is expected to announce the iPhone 5C at its event on September 10 for the iPhone 5S.

    I just watched a video also on the scratch testing of the iPhone 5C, and it holds up really good! I remember the plastic back iPhone 3GS was not very bad compared to how scratched the iPhone 5 looks like after a few months of pocket wear. I actually think that the plastic might look better after extended use. Im not sure. The video was here not bad, but I just wish the aluminum held up better because I like the look, but after awhile it doesn’t look as good anymore… plastic might look better for longer.
