New pictures leak comparing Apple iPhone Lite and Apple iPhone 5

New pictures leak comparing Apple iPhone Lite and Apple iPhone 5
We recently saw a few pictures that compared what was purportedly the back of the Apple iPhone Lite with the back of the Apple iPhone 5. Since then, we also reported the latest news about the two different variants of the low-priced iPhone, each one with different internal specs and heading for different markets.

The cheaper model is rumored to be given the code name Zenvo and will feature a Samsung produced H5P dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, and support for FDD 4G connectivity and Bluetooth 4.0. The other model, code named Zagato/Bertone, will have an H6P processor and supports TDD 4G LTE for the Chinese market.

Now, we have another series of photographs showing the Apple iPhone Lite (not sure which of the two models this is) next to the Apple iPhone 5. We also have one new rumor related to the next iteration of the regular priced iPhone, which is that it will not be available in black or white. According to the report, which we cast upon with a very suspicious eye, the Apple iPhone 5S or iPhone 6 will be available in only grey, silver or gold.

Thanks, Anonymous Tipster!

I'm really curious about the specs they put on this cheaper model.

It has to be at least that of the iPhone 4S but with 1 GB of RAM, or else it will fail.

Nada, i don't iPhone lite will have 1GB RAM... That will kill iPhone 4(S) customers.

But iOS 7 needs 1 GB of RAM now because it finally supports multitasking, even Apple knows that. If they put less than that, then they are intentionally putting a drawback on their users.

How will you explain iOS 7 coming to 4S then?

That's exactly what I mean. My friend has had iOS 7 on his 4S since release, and it lags consistently. I know it's still in beta, but it hasn't gotten any better even with 2 new updates. A true multitasking OS just can't run smoothly on 512 MB of RAM without clearing out background processes constantly.

But it did come right? Just not so optimized... 1GB ram on iPhone'll see, but i'll be skeptical.

But the thing is that Apple couldn't have anticipated the drastic change iOS 7 would bring at the time of the 4S, so they couldn't have given the 4S what it needed, but they can with the Lite.

iOS 7 beta 3 benchmark on a iPhone 4...395. Just pitiful.

Well the iphone 6 will come out and 5S most likely and the 5 will become the 4S price point, and most likely they will discontinue the 4S all together, or is even possible the plastic will be just a new iteration and they will keep just the 6 and 5 and all S versions will become the cheap versions, well who knows we have to wait and see.

it would have to be more like the 5 to be able to support LTE in the "Apple Proper" way and also i think an iPhone "Lite" really messes with Apple's model of just being able to move down the last gen iPhone to the mid range category which i think worked really well for them however this could work if this ends up just being an inexpensively built iPhone 5. so then they could fill the mid range category with both this and the 5 but they'll be able to offer trade-offs for each other, price vs. quality without specs having to be thrown in. if they were the Lite would probably lose considering how cheap you can get an iPhone 5 nowadays.

I think iPhone lite is 4S replacement in the mid range world

I didn't like how the previous gen iPhone was their mid range model, because after 1 or 2 software updates they are severely behind in features compared to the newest generation products. It's a big middle finger to those who buy previous gen devices. If Apple can make a mid range device alongside their flagship while giving it the same software features, that would be a much better deal for people who can't buy the high end model.

Well if the cheaper model gets all the features then how would Apple motivate people to buy the high end model? The only difference would be looks.

The yellow one looks like it has a cheap $2 ebay case on it.

Comparing the iPhone Lite with the iPhone 5. It's like comparing a mustard flavored soap with a smartphone.

6. wendygarett unregistered

+1 for the mustard flavored soup :)

I don't understand why apple would even consider making an iphone with that cheap aesthetic material, unless of course it is more likely to be aimed at 3rd world countries.

Furthermore, They are planning to block Whatsapp and Skype, no need to get mobile phones, will be back soon to sending messages via pigeons.

With all of these leaks I'm actually starting to believe a 4.3" iPhone is possible. They will use the iPhone lite to maintain their one-handed usability stance and market the 5S as the premium device.

they won't change the screen size again for a long while. third party developers for Apple products are still wheeling off of the bump to 4.0".

The developers that haven't changed (I have over 100 top apps on my iPhone 5, and none are letterboxed) are just lazy. It is literally a change to a couple lines of code.

Are they thieving off of HTC with the white strips across the back of the phone?

It's one thing to be cheap in price but cheap in materials sucks. HTC One is premium material cheap price only $599 cheaper than galaxy s4 and only $20 more than galaxy s3.

Galaxy S4 has more to offer in terms of hardware and software. Just letting you know.
