Concept renders of upcoming affordable Apple iPhone appear
Leaks about a cheaper iPhone are all over the place - from alleged drawings of the device and its dimensions to pictures of colorful back plates, and even rumored prices, - but we've never gotten to see what such a device would look in its entirety. That’s fixed now as these concept renders of the upcoming affordable iPhone by Ciccarese Design are based on all the rumors and portray its possible looks brilliantly.

These high resolution images (check them out right below) comply with all the rumors and show concept renders that definitely look Apple-esque.

The pictured device is slightly taller and thicker than the iPhone 5 because of its plastic shell. It measures 8.5mm thick and is wider than the original iPhone series. However in all other aspects it’s very similar, including the equally sized 4-inch display. Take a look.

No. It looks like a cheap device, which goes against Apple's policy. And that's a terrible choice of colors btw.

They match the gaudy look of iOS 7.

I don't understand people wanting these bright colored phones, myself. To me, a device like this should be black or grey - I didn't even like the pebble blue for my S3. Covered it with a black case. I think bright colors look cheap and gaudy. But thats just my taste, I suppose.

A "cheap" iPhone will still probably cost at least $450 off contract. Still $100-$150 more than the Nexus 4, a high-end android phone. It's funny to hear anyone call it affordable or cheap.

Cheap yes, affordable no... Android is still the best alternative bucky... if people dont like it, well yes, there are others... but not quite like Android... specially on Sony, HTC, Samsung high end devices
