Over recent months, rumors of an apparent budget iPhone have been heating up, with leaked images of parts and casings that purport to be of the new iPhone posted nearly every week. Today we have some more – high resolution images of the casing of the iPhone 5C, as it is supposedly being called, along with a rumor about the price.
First, the price. A report has surfaced that puts the price of new budget phone at around $490. This goes against the previous rumors that the device would be priced at around $3-350 and, to be honest, it’s not a very budget-like price. However, this puts it in the price rang of the iPhone 4 at the moment and that model is now 3 years old so perhaps it’s not that out of the question.
Second, the images have come from Sonny Dickson and all show a sleek white device with black Apple logo, albeit made of polycarbonate. The plastic ties in with the rumors that the Phone would be plastic to keep costs down, although it’s also been speculated on that we will see this model in several different colors, similar to the iPod Touch.
Update : Some low resolution iPhone 5C ink pink case were leaked wrapped in plastic cover
Although we have no technical specifications of the device yet its though it will have at least an A6X, 1.2GHz processor with 1GB RAM and an 8 megapixel iSight camera. What do you think of the phone? Would you pay $490 to own it SIM-free?
