“New pictures show a plastic back panel with a Lightning connector, suggesting the component could be from a pre-release build of Apple’s rumored low-cost iPhone,” Sam Oliver reports for AppleInsider.
“The pictures were posted to Chinese microblogging site Sina Weibo, and were highlighted by Apple.Pro,” Oliver reports. “The pictures show a rear panel that appears slightly thicker than the iPhone 5, with a curved back similar to the iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS.”
Oliver reports, “The part appears to be plastic, and one picture shows a Lightning connector inserted into the bottom of the case… Separately, Apple.Pro also relayed a rumor that Apple’s so-called “iPhone 6,” the name given to a handset expected to be released in 2014, will feature an even larger 4.7-inch display.”
