Low-Cost iPhone Uses Plastic Housing

The Low-cost iPhone rumor becomes stickier as another rumor makes it more plausible. Yesterday we carried a widely reported rumor that Apple cut iPhone 5 part orders dramatically. Digitimes has now posted a new rumor about the low-cost iPhone that says that Apple tries to cut cost by using a plastic chassis.

There are other rumors that the entry-level iPhone will have a mix of metal and plastic in the casing. Another rumor says that the design has special design where the internal metal parts can be seen from the outside.

Apple will have a critical earnings call on January 23. The Apple stock is under pressure since a while. The whole iPhone 5 discussion is not helping.
