  • New 'Leaked' Images of Apple's 'iPhone Lite' Hit The Web


    More leaked images of Apple's long-awaited low-cost iPhone are spreading across the blogosphere like wildfire today.

    If legitimate, the photos unquestionably represent the most detailed shots we have to date of the so-called "iPhone Lite."

    Consistent with other component images turning up online in recent weeks, the newest shots of the iPhone Lite shell suggest that Apple will roll out the entry-level iPhone in a variety of colors from which consumers can choose. Surfacing first on Nowhereelse.fr, the shell shots depict red, yellow, white and blue models, although more options - including green - are expected.

    Apart from the color diversity on display, these new images don't really tell us much else about the rumored low-cost iPhone. Analysts still expect the cheaper model to simply phase out signature glass and metal components to accommodate a cheaper but highly durable plastic.

    Apple, it goes without saying, hasn't confirmed the device's existence. However, it's been apparent for quite some time now that Apple would like to crank out a cheaper iPhone in hopes of eliminating the need for carrier subsidies, which is something that would give Apple more flexibility in the manufacturing process.

      What you said. Ha lol

      I'm leaning more towards Chinese knockoffs. It doesn't even have the class "model number", "designed by Apple in California", and "FCC ID" underneath where it says iPhone.

      That was what I noticed too. The colors are just bad too, maybe that's the photo but they are horrible.

      I like the idea of a "lite" iPhone. It's tough to remember here in America that most of the world is still developing their 3G networks. It doesn't make sense to charge them iPhone 5/5s prices for a phone with features they'll never be able to use. Plastic back or not, it'll still have the same Apple quality. I'm actually curious to see how a premium manufacturer like Apple does "cheap". BMW tried it with the 1 Series, and I like those a lot. It could go well!

      This is a completely different back from what is posted. Lol. Better mock up than the knock offs.

      Err, kinda ugly. Apple finally hit the nail directly on the head with the sleekness of the iPhone 5. Now they're going back to 2007? Hard to believe.

      Remember, there is money to be made with "leaked" Apple information. Do not trust anything that does not come directly from Apple!

      An android based knock off, that is all.
