Apple s rumored entry-level iPhone has been creating quite a bit of buzz on the Internet recently and has somewhat taken the spotlight away from the upcoming iPhone 5S and the fifth-generation iPad. Joining the long list of rumors is a photo posted on the Tactus blog, which the case manufacturer claims is the rear shell of the cheap iPhone.

Previous reports have claimed that this low-cost iPhone will sport a body made of materials similar to the glossy polycarbonate body seen on the company s entry-level MacBook and the image stays true to them. The photo shows a back made up of a plastic material with a flat back, curved edges and longer volume rocker on the left side. Overall the device in the picture sports a form factor quite similar to the iPod Classic.
In addition to the photo, Tactus has also posted a list of specs which claim that the phone will feature a 3.5-inch display, an A5 chip and also include a 5-megapixel camera at the back. This is contrary to earlier reports that the low-cost iPhone would have a 4-inch display like the current iPhone 5 but with a lower resolution. The site also mentions it would be available in five color variants black, white, blue, red and yellow.
Again sticking to our earlier reports, Tactus states that in terms of the pricing for this low-cost product, Apple will sell the iPhone at around $330 (Rs 17,820 approximately), which is iPad mini territory. We don’t believe the site would be in a position to know Apple’s go to market strategy to comment on its pricing. It is difficult to say how authentic the above image is as it is still early days, and the iPhone in the picture may very well be a test dummy. As with all rumors we again advice you to take this new set of information with a pinch of salt.
