The next time Apple refreshes its smartphone lineup, will it introduce a new (slightly) lower-cost, plastic-bodied model like the iPhone 5C? Rumors have occasionally claimed as much, suggesting we’ll get some sort of iPhone 6C later this year. There’s even been some possible evidence of such hardware, though it’s hard to say just how legitimate that might be. But today we’re turning to a much more reliable source, as Apple itself publishes an image that sure looks an unknown C-series iPhone.

Maybe more precisely, it looks like an iPhone 5C with the addition of Touch ID. Remember, while the iPhone 5S introduced the Touch ID fingerprint scanner, the 5C stuck with the traditional home button design.

The image shows up in a new product listing for an official Lightning doc, pictured alongside a number of much more easily identifiable iPhone models. But what does that make this one? A screw-up by the art department, generating a Frankenstein render made from components of different handsets? It’s possible, maybe, but would Apple really be that sloppy? Maybe it was a real conceptual design that never made it to production? Or there’s the outside chance that the iPhone 6C really will look a two-year-old model.
