Apple is rumored to release a budget version of the iPhone later this year, however, folks from Techdy claim to have get their hands on the phone’s case already. A handful of photos along with a video was posted on Techdy blog revealing a device sporting a familiar design. The photos seem to be looking legit, picturing a device in white and black color options with the Apple logo on the back. The budget iPhone is expected to be launched also in red, green, blue and yellow hues.
Budget iPhone with Android-based components
According to the rumors, the wallet-friendly version of iPhone will feature a plastic body. Indeed, it appears that the phone’s case will be made of plastic, or polycarbonate material to be more exact. However, Techdy claims that it feels “more sturdy” than the material used for other smartphones.
Apparently, the affordable iPhone will have a 4-inch display, just like the iPhone 5, and will also feature a Lightning port. Inside of the case reveals pre-aligned screw holes as well as the holes for camera, LED flash and microphone.
If you are too impatient to wait for the budget iPhone, you can treat yourself to the iPhone look-alike with Android internals. Techdy used the iPhone design to fit Android-based components inside to create a Basic Bear phone.
The device, priced at $199, features a 4-inch display with 1136 x 640 resolution, 8-megapixel rear camera with LED flash, and 2-megapixel front-facing camera with 1080p HD video recording. Powered by a 1.7 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor, the phone runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and offers 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of storage and a 2300 mAh battery.
