Plastic shell for low-cost Apple iPhone leaks in green
A leaked picture shows off what is supposedly the plastic shell for the low-cost version of the Apple iPhone. The shell is green and is similar in color to one of the plastic rubber bumpers that is available for the iPhone. The leak comes from a gentleman who has connections to some of the factory workers in China. There is a single circle for the flash to the right of the round opening for the lens, and a small hole for a microphone in between.

Apple is expected to offer various colors options for the low-cost model with green, yellow, blue, pink and white expected to be available. Besides using a plastic body, the "budget" iPhone should have a slower processor, less impressive camera, 3G connectivity and 8GB of storage. Earlier this month, we showed you a video of what was allegedly a case for the low-cost Apple iPhone and a single cutout on the back of the case aligns perfectly with the positioning of the camera lens, microphone and flash.

The low-cost Apple iPhone is expected to be launched later this year in emerging markets like Africa and India, priced at $329 off-contract.
