In the last few weeks we have seen several images of cases of the alleged ?low-cost iPhone? that, as said by the CEO of Pagatron, Apple's partner in the production of iProducts, it shouldn't be that cheap if it were to be launched by Ma. MacMagazine on Air # 046 (soon you will be able to hear), we believe that the device will be launched by Apple, it remains to be seen when and how it will be.
Chris Chang, editor in chief of the site M.I.C. Gadget, managed to put his hands on one of those pieces and detailed everything in Techdy Blog even with a very cool video, see s:
The low-cost iPhone will be made substantially of plastic (we can feel that it is made of polycarbonate). It has a 4-inch screen, like the iPhone 5, and, interestingly, has a shape that resembles the original Apple iPod. When we hold the low-cost iPhone in our hands we feel that the plastic structure does not appear to be cheap. Unlike the plastic quality of Samsung Galaxy phones, the material used in the low-cost iPhone seems more resistant.
And guess what, we were able to put the display assembly (of the iPhone 5, probably) on the rear structure of the low-cost iPhone. The display assembly fit perfectly inside the rear case.
The case is not finished and, instead of the volume buttons, silencer and on / off, we only have holes that mark the position, I believe.
In the image below we see that the structure has a headphone jack at the bottom, a microphone space right next to it, in addition to the two spaces for screws and the speakers (similar to the iPod touch of fifth generation).
Now, comparisons with the iPhone 5:
Based on this information, they even developed a clone device, called Basic Bear, which runs Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean), equipped with a 4 ? screen (1136 × 640 pixels), Snapdragon processor quad-core 1.7GHz, 2GB RAM, 16GB capacity, 8 megapixel cameras (rear) and 2 megapixels (front), 2.300mAh battery, five colors, among other things for $ 200.
But back to the structure: if we're really talking about something hot, I don't know. But I think the path will be very similar to this, with the addition of the bright colors that we are seeing popping up around. This concept, created by Ferry Passchier, in my opinion has always been the one that best represented this iPhone and, due to the structures we are seeing, it seems that Passchier got it right.
If the low-cost iPhone is like that, I don?t know if making a clone with exactly the same back was a good idea from Techdy Blog.
