New images of Apple's purported low cost iPhone popped up this morning, supplied by Australian writer Sonny Dickson (https://twitter.com/SonnyDickson/status/354924020627546113/photo/1). Depicted are five different color variations of the outer plastic shell of the low-cost iPhone, which look similar to previously leaked (http://www.macrumors.com/2013/07/03/possible-photo-of-lower-cost-plastic-iphone-rear-shells-shows-new-blue-color/) images.

The shells are shown in bright, almost neon colors of pink, blue, green, yellow, and white. Though there's no guarantee that the plastic shells are authentic, they share the same camera holes and logo positioning as former images.

Last week MacRumors provided renderings (http://www.macrumors.com/2013/07/02/high-resolution-renderings-of-apples-lower-cost-plastic-iphone/) of what the completed low cost iPhone might look like, and Techdy released (http://www.macrumors.com/2013/07/06/high-quality-video-and-photos-reveal-what-apples-plastic-iphone-will-look-like/) a video showing both front and rear parts of the upcoming plastic iPhone. According to the site, the colorful plastic shells will each accompany a black front panel.

Apple's low-cost iPhone is expected to be released later this year alongside the company's flagship iPhone 5S, possibly as early as September or October.

Would probably look ugly and unappealing to me at first but I would probably grow into it and liking the looks and design. Not my cup of tea for me right now...

I would think this would look badass with iOS 7

Apple are moving away from user serviceable electronics so doubtful they'd then allow a user changeable battery.

About 6 months ago I took a break from iOS and decided to go for the nexus 4 which I have a love /hate relationship with .. Long story short both android and iOS have come a long way to be decent alternatives ..I for one can't wait to go back to iOS especially after I've fallen in love with iOS 7 on my wife's iPhone 5 ..I do believe that the iPhone 4 and 5 designs have made them a bit joyless but a colored iPhone is a welcomed change .. Blue or green please with iOS 7 :) can't wait for the launch

Apple wants only one size screen on the iPhone. No more 4.

Just plastic one, 5 and 5s.

Can anyone explain what happens to the iPhone 4S once the 5S and the budget iPhone comes out presumably for $300-349? Carriers subsidize $449 for the 4 right now and will do the same for 4S, yet the budget iPhone will be cheaper and better (w/ 4 inch retina). And I don't see Apple taking $100 hit here, nor do I see budget iPhone being $449 because that just beats the whole purpose of budget?

Any reasonable explanation?

I thought that too? The form of these back covers reminds me a lot of the Palm Pixi back covers, which were changeable (http://kb.hpwebos.com/wps/portal/kb/common/article/24398_en.html) (though a huge pain in the ass to remove), with the battery underneath.

Because the iPhone 3G had that thick chrome trim, this doesn't. The color goes right up the plane of the screen, and even seems to hug it somewhat. That's closer to the Pixi I think. Also, those colors are almost the same.

Actually I think A5 will be discontinued.
It will be A6 across the board with A7 for flagship products. That's one of the reasons for going with plastic and cheap camera because it brings the cost down enough that they can put better internal components.

The 3G certainly looked a ton better than most contemporaneous Palm (Treos were metal), Windows Mobile, and BB devices.

I these were somehow removable backs like a previous poster speculated, could the FCC info be on a sticker inside the phone rather than on the exterior? These don't seem to be interchangeable covers though....haven't the inside pictures shown screw anchor points? If it was removable, the guts of the phone would have to be somehow fixed to the display rather than to the back shell.

iPhone 4S will be discontinued

So are you saying the Budget iPhone will replace the 4S? The 4S as it stands right now will replace the iPhone 4, which costs $450 off contract. So if Apple does not release budget iPhone the 4S would cost $450. So are you saying the budget iPhone will cost $450? I think 99% of people can agree that the budget iPhone will cost much less than $450 (probably $300-$350). So how could a $350 product replace $450 product?

Apple isn't going to say, hey carriers, you guys are subsidizing our entry level products too much, we don't want $450, here take back a $100. My question here is what will replace the 4S since it will be discontinued because the budget iPhone is superior (to the 4S) and cheaper (because of 4 inch retina + a likely A6 Chip + LTE).

The only thing that makes sense to me is dropping the iPhone 5 to $0 on contract ($450 without), and releasing the 5S for a NEW low price of $99 on contract? What do you guys think? Any other way Apple can pitch this?

Can someone explain to me how just a plastic case is making this loads cheaper? What else will it be missing in order to make it a budget alternative?

A moulded plastic case is much much cheaper to produce than a machined aluminium case. The aluminium then has to be Anodised and dyed after machining, both these processes will require greater quality control than an injection moulded plastic item. The glass panels in the back of the iPhone 5 are made to very exact tolerances, this will also add to the cost.

The plastic phone will probably have a single flash and lower quality cameras to keep the cost down.

I imagine it will also have plastic buttons and probably not ship with a set of earbuds!

What is not to get? The phone is made in China (hence the leaks). The phone then gets shipped world wide. The only place that gets the FCC info is the US. Moreover, if these are test units not for sale they need no label in the US. Further, who knows at what stage the labels go on. I am guessing last.

Those look dreadful. While Apple does use a similar (though brighter) pallet for the iPod, it's difficult to imagine them using something like this for the iPhone. I just can't see them offering a regular iPhone, a cheap iPhone, and possibly a large iPhone all together. Is anyone not buying iPhone because of cost at this point? If so, will these be cheap enough to capture those users?

I seriously doubt they put it on separately. Why would they run through the process for the logo/name and then run the product through the system again? That is the definition of inefficient.

Also, even if there is no FCC stuff I would think there would have to be some of that other info.

Outside of the US, it seems so, since an unsubsidized iPhone 4 is still what, $300? These should be cheaper for Apple to build than manufacturing the iPhone 4 or 4S while offering similar capabilities.

Apple's cheapest product, the iPod Shuffle is also aluminium.
Somebody tell me why they'll use some ugly plastic for an iPhone???:confused: :confused: :confused:

The use of plastic is two-fold:

1. Help reduce the CoGS of the budget iPhone (let's call it the iPhone Color) to maintain a decent margin while targeting the mid-low end of the market.
2. Differentiation across the iPhone portfolio to avoid too much cannibalisation.

That bright plastic is going to appeal to a younger budget/style concious demographic and Apple will sell these by bucket load. By contrast, the aluminium iPhone will retain its premium look (and margins) and still sell bucket loads to an on average slightly older better-off consumer.

Win-win for Apple.

Apple wouldn't submit the device till last minute with request to hold publication till a certain date. They can't then print certification on an untested device.

No camera filtering on A5 devices? What about the 5th gen iPod touch? It has filters.

What is not to get? The phone is made in China (hence the leaks). The phone then gets shipped world wide. The only place that gets the FCC info is the US. Moreover, if these are test units not for sale they need no label in the US. Further, who knows at what stage the labels go on. I am guessing last.

In Europe we also have the FCC info in our devices

Pretty much every high end phone and tablet has 2GB RAM or more. Except the iPhone and iPad. So I predict the 5S and iPad 5 get 2GB RAM.

I laughed, but I don't get what you mean.

I figure they were talking about ketchup/catsup (aka in some parts as tomato sauce).

It's a good question: pantry means it's not cold when you put it on your food, and our containers (Heinz of course...) say "for best results, refrigerate after opening", not like a warning, like a suggestion. I don't think it can go bad over a reasonable use cycle, same with mustard, and I don't think restaurants chill their ketchup either.

:D

Actually I think A5 will be discontinued.
It will be A6 across the board with A7 for flagship products. That's one of the reasons for going with plastic and cheap camera because it brings the cost down enough that they can put better internal components.

I agree, I think Apple would prefer better economy of scale for the A6, and it means OS feature parity (UI effects, etc) on their newest three devices, heck, I wouldn't be surprised to see the iPod Touch get an A6, the [eventual] iPad Mini retina go A6 variant (i.e., A6X) like the 4th gen iPad. I'm also not convinced the 5th gen iPad will get a brand new series SOC, I think maybe a die shrunk, tweaked A6 again that results in a small bump in performance and battery life.

Outside of the US, it seems so, since an unsubsidized iPhone 4 is still what, $300? These should be cheaper for Apple to build than manufacturing the iPhone 4 or 4S while offering similar capabilities.

Actually, iPhone 4 is $450 unsubsidized, and that's for the lame 8GB version that is currently sold as the low-end iPhone. Something comparable to the iPhone 5 going for anything near $300 is obscenely optimistic, but we'll see soon enough.

I was actually thinking Cook batting leadoff, with Schiller in the 2 hole, Ive batting 3rd and Federighi batting cleanup.....Ive can do it all and Federighi is the big hitter lately.

Pretty solid lineup if you ask me ;)

The internals you have are just wrong. They're going either going to keep the 4S around for selling, or drop it completely. The 4 will be dropped completely. So the line up will be either 3 iphones (5, 5S, el-cheapo), or the same plus the 4S. My thinking is they'll drop the 4S because it's still a 3.5 inch screen, and has less than a gig of ram. The cheap iPhone will have 1gig of ram, and an A6 chip. The reason for this is because almost the entire reason for the cheap iPhone is to have a phone spec'd to be able to run iOS7. the iPhone 4 can barely run iOS7. 0.5 gigs of ram doesn't sit well with iOS7's transitions and animations. Plus new background tasks. What the cheap iPhone lacks will be in camera (versus the 5S which will have a 12mp) and potentially might not be retina, but not certain about that yet. I doubt they would not put retina in it. A5 chip is trash though, and you're stupid if you think they're going to launch a phone that is supposed to be for iOS7, with only 0.5 gigs of ram, and can hardly run iOS7.

Agreed. Ugly colors IMHO.
