Polycarbonate Shell for Low Cost iPhone Allegedly Leaked [Photo]
A photo of the polycarbonate shell for the rumored low cost iPhone has allegedly leaked on Tactus.com.
This shell, if it is the fabled budget iPhone, suggests a thicker phone, since the case measures in at 0.4-0.6mm thick, which means it’s likely both taller and wider than the iPhone 4/4s! Hmm, being so little I’m not sure I could cope with that! However this doesn’t look as rounded as the iPhone 3Gs, in fact, it looks tapered to a flat back which is stylish but still a low-cost option for production. Clever thinking Apple.
I’ve also heard on the grapevine that the alleged budget iPhone will have an A5 processor like the iPad Mini with a 32nm diecast. It’s also rumoured it will have a 3.5 inch retina screen, much like the 4S, but not as big as the iPhone 5 – a few more pennies saved with that compromise! It’s also likely to have a handy 5MP camera, again like the iPhone 4!
The site also claims that the low cost iPhone will be available in black, white, blue, red, and yellow. Finally, they predict it will go on sale on October 15th for $300.
Check out the photo below and let us know what you think in the comments. You can also compare it to iLounge's prediction that the device will be a cross between the iPhone 5, iPod touch, and iPod classic.
