Closeup Photos of Alleged Lower-Cost Plastic iPhone Rear Shell Compared to iPhone 5
Over the past several weeks, an increasing number of photo leaks of what has been claimed to be the rear shell of Apple's rumored upcoming lower-cost plastic iPhone have surfaced, showing a device just slightly larger than the iPhone 5 and carrying the same layout of physical features, albeit with simplified microphone and speaker grille designs along the bottom edge.
Japanese magazine Weekly ASCII now shares some new closeup photos [Google translation, via Mac Otakara] of a yellow version of this plastic rear shell, showing it in good detail while also placing it alongside an iPhone 5 for comparison. The design continues to show a screw hole layout consistent with leaked iPhone 5S logic boards, suggesting that both the iPhone 5S and the lower-cost iPhone may share very similar logic board designs, at least at a broad level.
There is no confirmation that this rear shell is a genuine one leaked from Apple's supply chain, and the sheer number of photo leaks from various sources suggests that some of these parts may simply be unauthorized replacement parts. Still, these parts are appearing in significant quantities standardized around a common design that is also consistent with long-running rumors of Apple's plans for the device. At a minimum, there is a good chance that these parts offer a good representation of what Apple's lower-cost iPhone will look like.

I have a feeling I'm going to want the plastic one more than the more expensive one...

Wow, it really does look like an extremely cheap iPhone when compared to the iPhone 5. But I still think it looks good.

Sorry, not interested
I plan to buy my first smartphone later this year and my decision is setup up on the iPhone. I am not interested in a watered down/hand me down experience. I want the real deal, yes, it cost a little bit more, but its worth it. Especially with how long I keep phones. Going 5 years so far with my current Nokia feature phone.

Looks legit. Even though it's supposed to be the rumored lower-cost iPhone it still has a certain finesse to it that probably only Apple could do. I would willing to buy the lower-cost iPhone vs the iPhone 5S but I'm still afraid of what their going to put inside it...

Just thought I am getting the usual out of the way.
"SJ would have / wouldn't have"
"Never going to happen / will happen"
"Will never sell / I will queue three days in a line"
"It will / won't be called iPhone <insert xyz here>"
"I move to Android / Windows"
"Looks awesome / sh****"
"Share Price Up"
"Share Price Down"
"Safari is snappier"
So now that's out of the way ... Moving on
