It looks as though Apple might be smoothing out some of the iPhone’s sharp edges for the low-cost version of its popular smartphone. Japanese blog Macotakara has posted some pictures of a case designed for the upcoming low-cost iPhone by third-party accessories manufacturer MGM Corp. that suggests the device will feature rounder edges than traditional iPhone models. AppleInsider notes that “the case for the low-cost iPhone is about 2 millimeters thicker than a similar accessory designed for the iPhone 5″ that conforms to the iPhone 5′s sharper edges. The round edges on the leaked case seem to confirm earlier reports about the low-cost iPhone having more rounded edges compared to other iPhone models, and it certainly looks like it could fit over the purported entry-level iPhone housing that leaked recently. Pictures of the case are posted below.
