Pictures claim to represent a lower-priced iPhone offering with polycarbonate case

The last time Apple dabbled with a polycarbonate case for its iPhone family was back in the 3G/3GS days. Back then; the cases were notorious for developing cracks, especially around the dock connector and headphone jack. Since that time, Apple has experimented with other casing materials such as steel/glass and even aluminum.
 
These days, evidence is mounting that Apple is looking to revisit the use of a polycarbonate case, this time in a "budget" iPhone model. New images from Techdy claim to show a fully assembled model, complete with its 4” Retina display.

 
As for the quality of the aforementioned case, Techdy claims:
 
When we hold the budget iPhone in our hands, the plastic chassis does not feel cheap at all. Unlike the plastic build quality of the Samsung Galaxy phones, the plastic material used on the budget iPhone feels more sturdy.

This is a lookalike not the real thing?

Why does the link say it comes with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean?

The leak is from a cheap knockoff maker. They say they have the budget iPhone and have made a similar model running Android... So, the leak itself is deviously motivated.

Clearly by the supply chain movement Apple is working on a cheaper model, but this could just be a clever fake.

Their knockoff is NOT the budget iPhone (It is called the "Basic Bear") -- just based on leaked design info, that's all. There is no dishonesty going on here.
