So many rumors, it’s hard to sort out what’s real and what’s not. When it comes to the budget iPhone they just keep on rolling with some even saying that the handset is already in production. It hasn’t been confirmed by Apple although we are now seeing a number of leaked images that purport to be of the cheap handset.

We’ve seen plastic casings, different colored ones, display assemblies and we’ve even seen one that was apparently the entire phone fully assembled. Now we have one that is supposedly the camera module that will grace the iPhone 5C, as the cheap iPhone is apparently going to be called. It’s been suggested that it is exactly the same camera that the iPhone 5 already sports, the 8 megapixel iSight. The only difference is that it has a plastic casing. Previous rumors said that it would only have a 5 megapixel camera so, if these images are the real thing, that quashes that one.

There are still a lot of people who are struggling to comprehend the idea of a cheaper device from the Cupertino Company. The Apple name immediately conjures up images of style and class, expensive, high-end devices. The mere thought that they could produce something cheap, something made of plastic sends shivers down some spines. However, one mustn’t assume that, because it is called a budget phone, it will be lacking in any department. Although the hardware won’t be as high spec as the iPhone 5 it will be anything but poor quality. That’s not Apple’s style.
It’s widely thought that Apple will be releasing 2 iPhones, the iPhone 5S and probable the 5C, at the same time. An official announcement is expected on September so, until then, keep checking back us for more up to date news and announcements.
