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. The shells (below) appear to be made of polycarbonate plastic, with metal housing inside for extra protection and to attach internal components. Other external colors on display include red, yellow, white, and green.

Many details are still nebulous, such as processing power, screen resolution, and any fingerprint recognition support. 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.
