A new case, 5 color choices and a $99 price tag- these are all one can expect for the low-cost iPhone to be launched in September. With 5S retaining the same design of the iPhone 5, the cheaper version with a new case and changes in design is all the more welcome.
Apple has always intended to focus on the high-end world of smartphones, but now with competitions high in the market, has introduced the new model and slashed prices as well.
Apple is also expected to discriminate its high-end and low cost phones by introducing more colors in the later just like iPods. The multiple colors are pink, orange, white, black and blue with a plastic casing unlike its flagship anodized aluminum body to keep pace with the price.
According to the images and a video posted by Macotakara, the low-cost iPhone would be 2 mm thicker than the iPhone 5 and would sport a 4-inch display and a plastic shell rounded at the corners.
Though, third party case makers have disclosed the designs of previous models of iPhones and iPads before, but it is always safer to wait for the official launch of the low-cost iPhone to see the design yourself.
