Low-cost iPhone emerges as tangible product

A new photo shows shells for the so-called iPhone Lite in more detail, including a previously undocumented blue color.

Other external colors on display include red, yellow, white, and green.

Photos and schematics do, however, appear to indicate that the Lite will using a single LED for flash, instead of the dual LEDs seen in iPhone 5S leaks. Both phones could be announced as soon as September.
