The reports about the expectantly upcoming cheaper iPhone are gaining momentum. New details have been shared by Jeremy Horwitz from iLounge about the Apple’s low cost iPhone. According to a detailed report by iLounge, some credible sources have told them that the new device will be designed “substantially from plastic.” iLounge also said that the front view of the budget iPhone will look very much similar to iPhone 5 as it will have a 4-inch display with 1136 x 640 resolution. Along with that it will also bear resembles with iPod touch 5th generation and iPod Classic.
It will be a cross between iPhone 5 and iPod touch and will be a little bigger in size than iPhone 5. Horwitz said that in comparison with iPhone 5, low cost iPhone will be “a half-millimeter taller and a half-millimeter wider—nearly imperceptible differences—as well as almost a millimeter thicker”.
Telling about other specs, Horwitz said that low cost iPhone will have iPhone’s Lightning connector, camera, headphone port and speakers, which will be positioned in same proportions as that of iPhone 5S. For another microphone, there is a small hole little far from the headphone port. Next to the centered Lightning port, there are two screw holes and towards bottom right there are four holes for speakers. At the back of camera, the microphone and rear flash are positioned in same way that of 5th generation iPod touch. The only difference is that they are without projecting rear lens.
In start of this month, Horwitz also cracked some details about upcoming iPad 5 and that iPhone 5 is planned in 2013 with larger rear flash.
The chunk information revealed by iLounge is interesting indeed and seems legit based on what we have been hearing from other sources.
