This is the low-cost iPhone, not the 5S.

I meant real as in the low-cost iPhone is real. I'm sure this is just the shell shown in the picture.

Yeah, but I'm sure the inside specs will be a real disappointment. Don't expect to run all of today's apps and games on it. There's going to be more than one annoyed customer, with regards to this.

I would hope not. When it comes to colors they seriously need to have the front match the color otherwise it just looks wrong. (Newer iPod Touch)

Maybe Apple learned and this one will not bend when you sit on it.

I really hope you are joking...

This dude can't be serious?

LOL!!

Seriously though, you're joking right?

The 5S is going to look like the 5. Just like the 3GS looked like the 3G. Just like the 4S looked like the 4. Haven't we learned about Apple and their predictability by now?

You will loose your bet. There will be a 5S and then the cheaper plastic phone.

OMG while I applaud your loyalty I assure we are coming from the same page here although I'm not an Apple fan to the point where I expect not to be drip fed products.. you care about width you say well so do I and I see nothing wrong in wanting a larger screen but this involves large costs for Apple and it's one which they won't go to without wringing out max profits first. Trouble is I see this as a major flop..the Android crew will be laughing all the way to the bank, this cheap release won't re-capture the lost market share, and will only drive more nails in the iPhone coffin..

My guess is this 'Low cost iPhone' will be something more along the lines of a pre-paid unlocked iPhone.

Maybe it will have the spec's of a iPhone 4s, if not the 4.

It will not be Retina, it might have LTE, maybe.

It will be able to run most Apps well enough.

This seem like a prototype, and doesn't have that seamless finish Apple is known to give their products, even the cheapest ones like iPod shuffles.

Around 200 bucks, unlocked straight from Apple? Maybe a bit more locked down then we are used to from a iPhone standpoint,

highly likely, hope they are up front about its capability.
