Apple affordable ‘iPhone Light’ and 'iPhone 5S' drawings leak out, trustworthy enough for case makers

Apple affordable ‘iPhone Light’ and 'iPhone 5S' drawings leak out, trustworthy enough for case makers

Apple is rumored to be preparing a massive unveiling soon with both an next-generation iPhone, the 5S, and a brand new product that is vaguely referred to as “the low-cost iPhone.” Officially, Apple has not confirmed any of the two, but unofficially schemes showing exactly how the two devices will look like have leaked out. What’s more interesting is that these drawings are trustworthy enough for case makers who have allegedly started manufacturing cases based on them.

First and foremost, you’d notice the new affordable iPhone referred to as iPhone Light. Secondly, the two devices look fairly similar size-wise. The new iPhone Light is portrayed as a slightly thicker and larger device, but it still retains that single-handed operation appeal. It will also have a 4-inch display, use the same round home button and have a front facing camera.

The actual form of the iPhone Light will be different though. It’ll be only a hair thicker, but to make up it will come up with rounded edges on the back. Button and port locations are to remain the same in the two upcoming devices.

There are no details about the cameras in the two devices, but the iPhone 5S drawing does sport a pill-shaped housing suggesting that it’d use a dual-LED flash while the iPhone light only has a single LED flash.

Finally, having case makers use these drawings is definitely some sort of indication about their authenticity. It is not a guarantee, though. In their attempts to deliver cases on day 1 of new Apple launches, case makers like Hard Candy have erred in the past losing tens of thousands of dollars. Take a look and use your own judgment, but do not hesitate to let us know what you think the future for Apple, possibly revealed by this.

Yes, since the basic design for the Lumias, and the predecessor N9, resemble the older iPod Nanos, I would say it is fair to brand the Nokia a ripoff. Thumbs up from me.

I think an iPhone that almost identically resembled a current iPod Nano would sell well. A smaller aluminum touchscreen package just like it. Just your basic features and more basic useful apps available.

Most iPhone users buy a iPhone to show off though, if it is cheaper then where is the show factor, besides some of the poorest in society end up with an iPhone....

Thats what Im saying. Dont make a low end phone and make it seem like one. Make one in disguise of a mini version except with all aluminum and small.

I kinda like the look of this. I also like that they aren't gonna cheap out and go back to the 3.5 inch screen. If they basically make this a 4s with the 4 inch screen it'll do pretty well.

I gotta say, this looks worse than Samsung's designs. Heck it makes them look "cool".

They're making an iPhone budget phone? Just when you thought it couldn't get anymore low end. The iPhone 5 is already considered midrange at best.

The render is an improvement to the iphail design philosophy, that is, one of the biggest complaints I have with the iph4 and above is the hard edges that make it uncomfortable, even painful, to hold. The original and 3g/gs had the rounded back but a rough seam between the bezel and back, making it feel cheap, toylike, and also uncomfortable.

Why do people like these things again?

Also, insert obligatory Lumia reference here.
