The circulating Plastic iPhone shell is getting compared to an iPhone 5 in the latest photos featuring what is believed will be the design of the low-cost iPhone.
We have seen the photos of the alleged plastic iPhone shell last week. They look pretty real. Now a photo appears from an iOS developer that shows the Plastic iPhone shell next to an iPhone 5. The size is pretty much a match. The only difference is the thickness. The Plastic iPhone is considerably thicker than an iPhone 5.
The Plastic iPhone will likely offer the performance and screen of today's iPhone 5 and is likely not as cheap as many people believe. It will be though low enough that carrier can make interesting pre-paid offers for the budget iPhone. Consumers still though get a very decent device for the price. The cutting edge this fall will be though the iPhone 5S, featuring fingerprint sensor, 12MP camera, NFC and IGZO screen - if you can believe the rumors.
