Candy wrappers: alleged yellow and red chassis for the budget iPhone leaks out
The eventual green wrap of the upcoming affordable iPhone model already leaked out earlier, and now we get to see the flashy red and yellow ones, sized up with a motherboard that was outed recently to show that the shoe fits. These multiple colors jibe with insider stories how the low-cost iPhone will focus on multiple colors differentiation when it gets announced later this year.

As for cost, the Pegatron boss, which allegedly assembles the new iPhones, said it's not going to be rock-bottom cheap for sure, so we are looking at decent hardware, getting a bit long in the tooth, purportedly wrapped up in these candy colors below. What do you think about these hues?

Is it just me or does that red look more like pink?

Even though i dun like apple products, i actually liked these color options and the look so far. Especially the rear. But we all know what the front will look like anyway.

Hard not to like something so Nokia-esque, other than the copycat aspect that is.

I hope these phones look better in person, because these colors look awfully cheap.

The design would complement iOS7 well. Can't deny the inspiration from Nokia, though.

Plastic? Those must be fake.

There's no way a top tier company like Apple would release cheap versions like these.

I agree, this seems hardly unlikely, but the fact that their stock isn't at it's highest, they will need to gain from developing countries.

IPhones up until the 4 were plastic. ipods are plastic. Some of their computers are plastic (new mac pro, for instance).

Your argument is invalid.

good point, plus all the FCC and all the other stuff on the back of the iphones are not there as well.

Maybe they're really going full-copy-machine and putting that on the bottom, just like a Lumia?

Eww, and they dare to call Samsung cheap plastic, this looks worst than some chinese iPhone knockoffs (eg. Goophonei5), probably even cost more too...

I think it's cute! I mean, I just hope they add a blue!! Honestly, what's wrong with some color? Nobody was bashing the iPod Nano's when they were released in various colors, so why bash it on the iPhone? Also, with the new iOS, the color schemes of the phone tie in quite nicely, if you ask me. Color is fun & exciting. Come on people, lighten up.

People bashed the color ipods for being too Nokia-esque; these will likely the yhe same well-deserved criticism.

I think every manufacturer steals from each other, so I don't get the shananigans about Apple doing. I don't see where it's patented that another company can't use colors xD
