Hands on With Apple's Low Cost iPhone? [Video]

Techdy claims to have gotten a hold of one of the leaked low cost iPhone shells and display assemblies, combining them to give us an idea of exactly what the device will look like.

As can be seen from the images above, all the rumors about the low-cost plastic iPhone seem to be true. The budget iPhone will be made substantially from plastic (we can feel it’s actually polycarbonate material). It will have a 4” screen, like the iPhone 5, and interestingly, the budget iPhone actually has a shape that’s similar to Apple’s original iPod. When we hold the budget iPhone in our hands, the plastic chassis does not feel cheap at all. Unlike the plastic build quality of the Samsung Galaxy phones, the plastic material used on the budget iPhone feels more sturdy. And guess what, we were able to fit the display assembly into the new budget iPhone’s rear shell. The display assembly just seemed to fit perfectly inside of the rear shell.

As you can see in the video below Techdy appears to have plans to sell an Android knockoff version of the phone which may put the validity of their claims in question. However, the rear shell does appear to match previous leaks.

Take a look...

Looks like a case or fake, no way apple would design the plastic with a split seam in the middle.
