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.
 

You can view video footage of the claimed budge iPhone here.

Lol, they say 'iPhone-based', yet go on to list a whole load of non-iPhone-Based hardware details.

Give them a break bro -- I suspect that the writer of that does not use English as a first language ;D

I think you're right: Apple easily make a ton of dosh with their current exclusive hardware and OS arrangement, testing the Android waters is only going to make people laugh at them.
About the only think that is really interesting about this phone is it seems to have the Apple connector and not the mini-USB connector that Android phones usually use.
