Apple’s (AAPL) upcoming entry-level iPhone will reportedly include the same 4-inch Retina display as the iPhone 5, but it will feature a brand new design. iLounge on Monday cites multiple unnamed sources in reporting a number of details surrounding Apple’s much-rumored cheaper iPhone. In line with an earlier report, the blog claims Apple’s low-end iPhone will use the same 4-inch display as the iPhone 5 and iPod touch. Possible new details emerge in the site’s description of the device, however. “This new model is actually a cross between the iPhone 5, fifth-generation iPod touch, and… wait for it… the iPod classic,” the report claims. “It will have a 4” screen, like the iPhone 5, a bottom like the latest iPod touch, and a shape that’s most similar to the iPod classic.” iLounge also claims that despite the phone’s plastic case, it will likely still include a Gorilla Glass front panel.
