“We’ve seen lots of pictures of budget iPhone parts in recent weeks, but these images from case maker Tactus show us what the device will look like when it’s fully assembled — complete with a display, a camera and flash, buttons, and a Lightning connector,” Killian Bell reports for Cult of Mac. “The images suggest the low-cost iPhone will have a 5-inch display just like the iPhone 5, and we expect it to be a Retina display.”

MacDailyNews Note: iPhone 5 sports a 4-inch (diagonal) widescreen Multi-Touch™ display with 1136-by-640-pixel resolution at 326 ppi, not a “5-inch display.”

“Tactus has not provided pictures of the device switched on, so it appears that it’s not a working unit, but maybe a dummy instead,” Bell reports. “The budget iPhone doesn’t appear to be too much bigger than the iPhone 5, though its design looks a little closer to that of the latest iPod touch.””
