iPhone Lite buttons leak out, have us wondering whether Apple has become a LEGO company
Has Apple secretly acquired LEGO? If you were to look at these colorful blocks of plastic out of the iPhone context you would think so. As you might have guessed, these are the volume and vibration buttons of the upcoming Apple iPhone Lite, also referred to as the affordable iPhone.

Unlike previous leaks of the whole body in five colors, this time we only get to see the buttons in four of those colors: the red, green, yellow and blue ones.

There is nothing more to that image - it confirms the plastic used all over in the iPhone Lite and it confirms the fact that the volume rocker will consist of two separate buttons. Most importantly, it once again regurgitates the awesome vibrant colors of it. Actually, this upcoming affordable iPhone is so colorful we are tempted to think of it as a toy. Don’t you agree?

Wait.... I am in PhoneArena right? On a different note, it looks ugly as hell! My son's lego looks even better.

Not too many comments from the iCrowd, seems like Apple is now catering to the low end market, something they ragged on Android for doing.

Ah... I see idea behind it now. The iPhone expressly built for parents to buy for their little kids/teenie bopper girls. Get them locked into the walled garden at an even earlier age. Smart Apple, smart. Not wanting to start all over after leaving iPhone/iTunes/App Store is the number one reason my friends & family say they won't leave their iPhones.

This looks worse that the plastic sgs4 uses, it looks like cheaper material.

While I agree with everything Victor H. said... I'm surprised if he doesn't receive a warning from PA for bad mouthing Apple products. Even IF he works here. Haha calling it a toy & Lego.

Well, at least it won't shatter when it falls to the ground like the 4, 4s, et al. But then this is ugly as hell, let's hope it's going to be reeeeeeeeeeeal affordable, because apparently Apple has made this iPhone look kinda ridiculous just to avoid losing the "premium feeling" on their flagship phone...
