There’s long been talk about a budget model iPhone, which many in the tech blogosphere have dubbed the “iPhone Lite”. It’ll be targeted at emerging markets and prepaid services with lower income demographics, the rumors say.
But what would such a budget iPhone look like, exactly? We’ve got what intends to be high-resolution photos of the outside shell of this mythical device, courtesy of Sonny Dickson on Twitter. They show five colors: pink, blue, green, yellow, and white (which isn’t really a color at all, but I digress…).
As you can likely tell from the photos (we can’t confirm their authenticity, so take this all with a grain of salt), the budget model iPhone would revert back to the days of the iPhone 3G /3Gs and use plastic for its exterior, instead of the metal and glass we’ve gotten used to since the iPhone 4.
What do you think? Would you be interested in a lower cost iPhone? Remember the old adage: you get what you pay for. Let me know on Twitter: @mbchp.
