If Digitimes is to be believed, a new report comes this time to reiterate the story of Apple’s budget iPhone, the new entry-level device is said to feature a plastic chassis, rather than metal or reinforced glass. This comes as a way to cut cost for the hardware pricy parts.
According to the report, the new iPhone will have its internal components visible due to a “special design.”
However, other rumors are circulating that the entry-level iPhone will adopt a chassis mixed with plastic and metal, with the internal metal parts being able to be seen from outside through special design, the sources noted.
Wall Street Journal and Bloomberg recently reported that Apple is working on a cheaper iPhone to launch in 2013 in a retail prices of $99 to $149.
