I think the colors are copied from Nokia and plastic from Samsung.

Since when does Nokia own colors? Since when did Samsung invent plastic?

Um, ever since Apple invented the rectangle with round corners?

I love that blue variant! If the specs are tolerable, I just may snatch one up. I love the rounder edges, such as the iPhone 3G. Feels more ergonomic in the hand; not so sharp. I don't mind the extra heft either. Looks good to me!

I can't tell if the plastic is really that glossy or is it the protective plastic stickers that are making it seem that way.

Seems to contradict everything Apple has tried to become in the past decade or so. Apple has always preached quality builds, quality materials, and polished user experience. Apple has never done entry level like this, plastic looks cheap, and the user experience is "look at me and my green phone!"

Then again, might be the first iPhone you won't actually need to get a case for.

In terms of mass, they are, but when it comes to buy the phone (sans subsidy) I think it's still heavy before this plastic model comes out.

There have been manufactures that build aftermarket back for iPhones since the iPhone 4, how do we know that this isn't just some manufacture building an aftermarket back for the iPhone 5/5s? Maybe if that's true they are letting out "leaked pictures" to draw hype and get peoples feedback. I may be wrong but I don't think apple would use cheap plastic on a budget iPhone. It only costs apple $250 to build an iPhone, if they want to produce a "budget" phone all they have to do is sell it to carriers for less.
