Leaked Budget iPhone Rear Shell Gets Compared To iPhone 5 In New Photos

The rumor mill has provided a steady supply of pictures of the alleged lower-cost iPhone that Apple is rumored to release later this year, but now we have some comparison shots of what the rear shell looks like compared to the iPhone 5.

Weekly ASCII in Japan got their hands on what they claim is the rear shell for the budget iPhone. While we can’t verify the authenticity of the case, it’s very similar to the other leaked photos of the budget iPhone rear shell we’ve seen and the screw hole layout is similar to the iPhone 5s logic boards that leaked earlier this week.

The mag says that they  saw casings in pink, blue, orange, black, and white as well.  Here are some close-up comparisons between the two iPhones:

    iOS 7 is bright and exciting. The colors of the new iPhones, however, look dull and washed out. :(

    Don’t judge them by a photograph. Bright colors don’t capture well under most conditions.

    That and for all we know this is a plastic mockup for the 5S. Or the budget iPhone. This color might just have been what they had in the vat

    Why are those colors so dead and shitty? They are so not the usual Apple bright colors!

    Part of it is definitely the fact that they stupidly left the protective film on them. And the purple background (when it’s most likely actually white) tells you that the white balance of the photograph is way off.

    Why did they choose the yellow iPhone body to do the comparison? Yuck! I’m hoping that this won’t be one of the colors that the iPhone comes in.

    IMHO, Apple should have been working on a Phablet iPhone not on a Budget iPhone. Two reasons: 1) look at the massive selling of Galaxy S3, 2) Apple already has multiple display sizes in all products but iphone.
