If dozens of leaked photos and numerous reports from major media organizations are to be believed, Apple is finally ready to launch a new entry-level iPhone alongside its next-generation iPhone 5S this fall. The handset will reportedly sit in the mid-range price tier, marking Apple’s first effort to address emerging markets with a brand new smartphone rather than one- and two-year-old models. Less expensive doesn’t necessarily mean cheap, however, and Techdy said the phone feels “more sturdy” than Samsung’s Galaxy phones after it assembled a smartphone using leaked iPhone parts. The company even put together an Android smartphone based some of the iPhone parts, and it’s selling the device in its shop for $199. Additional photos of the assembled entry-level iPhone follow below.
