Budget iPhone casing and iPhone 5S chassis captured

Tags: Apple, iPhone, Rumors

The purported images of the alleged budget iPhone just don't stop pouring in. This newest one comes from Taiwanese AppleDaily who also claims to have a shot of the iPhone 5S aluminum chassis.

According to the latest hearsay, the budget iPhone will be available in five colors - red, yellow, white, blue and green. The bezel surrounding the display will be white instead of black for all models, as previous rumors suggested. Naturally, given the price-cutting needs of the alleged affordable iPhone, it's made entirely from pl.

As for the iPhone 5S, it'll look similar to the iPhone 5 it replaces, but with updated specifications. Some of them are said to include 2GB of RAM, 12MP camera and 4G LTE-A support. The display is reportedly a 4" IGZO unit with the resolution remaining unchanged at 1136 x 640 pixels, resulting in a pixel density of 326ppi.

Apple is rumored to keep the CPU of the iPhone 5S the same, but will upgrade the graphics from a triple-core PowerVR SGX 554MP3 GPU to a quad-core variant of the same graphics chips.

Some crazy rumors that'll need you to have salt around include a fingerprint sensor technology for unlocking the phone and verifying NFC payments as well as a LED light on the Home button that'll blink when the phone is unlocked.

The expected price of budget iPhone is $349, $449 and $549 for the 16GB, 32GB and 64GB variants, respectively. Apple should announce the 2013 iPhone lineup in September, so we'll know for sure in about two months.
