Half a dozen mainstream news organizations have reported that Apple plans to launch a new entry-level iPhone to compete at the low end, and now the plastic outer shell of the handset may have been pictured for the first time. Case maker Tactus has published a photo of what it claims to be the polycarbonate shell from Apple’s upcoming budget smartphone. It also claims to have some details about the device, which will supposedly feature a smaller 3.5-inch display, an Apple A5 processor and the same 5-megapixel camera as the iPhone 4. Tactus also claims the phone will be available in black, white, blue, red and yellow. Apple’s low-end iPhone is expected to launch around the same time as the iPhone 5S in the late summer or early fall.
