New rumors have been surfacing recently around the possible release of a new and cheaper iPhone. The new iPhone will take many elements from the current Apple iPhone 5 model but be a cheaper build quality. The rumors in the mill are that the phone will use plastic components rather than the aluminum currently used for the framing and casing on the iPhone 5.
The iPhone 4 incorporates the aluminum frame with a glass back and front which is slightly different from the current 5 model with its aluminum back. The new cheaper model that Apple may release looks to go back to the days of the iPhone 3G and 3GS. Release of this new iPhone isn’t slated until at least next year so don’t get your hopes up anytime soon. Marketing execs at Apple have also stated that they will not be developing a “cheap” smartphone although some sources say the story has been revised from their original statements.
