Purported images of “cheap” iPhone make an appearance
So we have been hearing and reading rumors of a cheap iPhone coming off the assembly line to make iOS and all the i-things we do with them more accessible.
If these images are authentic, and since they are from two different sources we think they may be, we can see what are obvious design choices for the handset, most notably, plastic. The back plate harkens back to the days of the iPhone 3G. The edges look like a rubberized plastic. On the bottom is the Lighting cable plugged in and doing its thing along with a 3.5mm headset jack and a speaker.
It is difficult to be certain, but by the dimensions of the Lightning plug and the rest of the visible form factor, we figure the device will have a 4-inch display like its uptown cousin. The rest of the specifications of course are not known, but this may well be the beginning of a semi-steady flow of information based on the amount of leakage we saw with the iPhone 5.
