Plastic iPhone shell shows up again, goes side by side with current products

The alleged low-cost, plastic iPhone continues to be a thing, and well known YouTuber DetroitBORG has managed to obtain one of the shells we've seen so many leaked images of already. While it is only the shell, DetroitBORG – otherwise known as Michael Kukielka – compares it to the iPod touch, iPhone 5, iPhone 4/4S and the iPhone 3GS.

The comparisons are pretty neat, actually. The shell bears a lot of resemblance to the 5th Gen iPod touch, with a similar form factor and speaker arrangement down the bottom, alongside of course a Lightning port, the 3.5mm headphone jack and the microphone. It's also slightly thicker than the iPhone 5. At this point in time we're still wondering exactly what this is, if indeed it does come to market. Speculation is that the 30-pin laden iPhone 4 and 4S will be discontinued, and that this 'budget' offering will fit into that part of the lineup, along side the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5s. Check out the video and see what you think. How do you like the looks of it?
