Is this the upcoming low-end iPhone?

What we have here is apparently the first photo of Apple’s upcoming budget iPhone. As you can see for yourself, this polycarbonate unit looks a lot like the iPhone 3G and 3GS though it has a flat back instead of the curved one, and a LED-based flash next to the camera. Moreover, this model has the old volume rocker split into two, while the phone’s body is slightly taller, wider and thicker than the iPhone 4 and 4S.

Final and perhaps the most intriguing detail – this iPhone may be produced in a number of colors, including the standard black and white, as well as blue, red and yellow. That would be a novel approach for Apple and perhaps help it reach even more customers in emerging markets of the world. Add a lower price point to the mix and you get a formula Apple’s shareholders want.

In case you wonder, we have the case maker Tactus to thank for the photo above, which was apparently taken at a factory that provides parts to Foxconn…

    This could be a killer phone, one that could sell in hundreds of millions (if priced correctly)

      Of course they are going to say that. They want the subject to be all hush-hush. They don’t want anyone to know their plans.
