Over the past couple of weeks, we have seen leaked photos of Apple’s alleged budget iPhone, which recent rumors are calling the iPhone Light, and now thanks to Japanese magazine, Weekly ASCII, it seems that they have managed to get their hands on the leaked components as well, the back plate to be specific, and they have compared the back plate to that of the iPhone 5, showing a comparison photo between the low-cost device and Apple’s current flagship phone. In terms of size it seems that both devices appear to be almost similar, with the main difference between that the volume and mute switches are more oblong, compared to the iPhone 5 where the volume switches are circular in nature.
Additional photos found on Weekly ASCII also shows off the screw hole layout which is apparently similar to that of the iPhone 5S, indicating that perhaps both the iPhone 5S and the low-cost iPhone could share similar logic board designs. There’s no way of telling if this back plate is the real thing, but it definitely does seem pretty consistent with the previous leaks we’ve seen. However as with Apple rumors, do take it with a grain of salt for now, but in the meantime what do you guys make of its design so far?
