Photos: Low-end iPhone assembled from leaked parts, feels less cheap than Samsung phones

Plastic iPhone Photos

If dozens of leaked photos and numerous reports from major media organizations are to be believed, Apple is finally ready to launch a new entry-level iPhone alongside its next-generation iPhone 5S this fall. The handset will reportedly sit in the mid-range price tier, marking Apple’s first effort to address emerging markets with a brand new smartphone rather than one- and two-year-old models. Less expensive doesn’t necessarily mean cheap, however, and Techdy said the phone feels “more sturdy” than Samsung’s Galaxy phones after it assembled a smartphone using leaked iPhone parts. The company even put together an Android smartphone based some of the iPhone parts, and it’s selling the device in its shop for $199. Additional photos of the assembled entry-level iPhone follow below.
