Anticipation for Apple
’s rumored plastic budget iPhone
is high--not so much because it’s supposed to be a killer device as people want to see if it will be any good. A company called Techdy claims that it’s snagged one of the devices and produced copious photos and a little teardown to show it off.
The photos show a white-backed device that has a 4-inch screen (which is also probably plastic), and there are two mic ports, a headphone jack, a Lightning
port, and a four-hole speaker grill. There is also a camera and LED flash on the back.
Bear in mind that Techdy is a company that specializes in knockoffs of phones--in fact, it’s already selling an Android
lookalike of the supposed budget iPhone called the Basic Bear--so take this one with a big grain of salt. Actually, you should take it with a lot of salt; this should account for your total recommended sodium intake for the day. (It’s not impossible that they just popped an iPhone 5 into a plastic case and called it a day.)

If this is the real thing, though, it’s not a bad looking device. And Techdy promises that it doesn’t feel cheap at all.
