It feels like a new leak forms every day about Apple's upcoming "low-cost" iPhone. This time the leak comes in from iOS developer Sonny Dickson who compares the plastic shell that houses the rear of the phone to a current generation iPhone 5. In the images, we can see a green and white version of the shell which appears to be a bit thicker than the iPhone 5 sitting next to it.




Other than the thickness, the "low-cost" iPhone appears to be roughly the same size as the iPhone 5. This works to disprove rumors that stated the new budget friendly iPhone would be sized closer to the iPhone 3GS. Speculators still suggest that we will see not only the "low-cost" iPhone 5 launch this fall, but an updated version of the iPhone which will be named the iPhone 5S as well.
