Low-cost iPhone will be like a plastic iPhone 5, claims story

Apple ‘s low-cost iPhone will look like the iPhone 5, take some cues from the iPod Touch and the iPod classic, and switch to a plastic body.

At least, that’s the latest scuttlebut from the folks at iLounge. Citing the usual “reliable sources,” the blog site claims the new model will be a cross between the iPhone 5, the fifth-generation iPod Touch, and the iPod Classic.

Like the current iPhone , the low-cost version would sport a 4-inch 1136×640 pixel Retina Display and use the new Lightning interface. The sensor, camera, and button arrangement would all match those found on the iPhone 5. The screen itself will stick with Gorilla Glass, say iLounge’s sources, but the body would be made of plastic.

The bottom of the phone would take its design from the iPod Touch. Like the Touch, the volume buttoms will adopt an elongated pill shape instead of the more circular design from the last few iPhones. The back of the phone will be home to the camera, microphone, and rear flash with the same layout as that on the latest iPod Touch.

Finally, the overall shape will be similar to the one found on the classic iPod .
