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.

"crushed the competition and made vast profits"

"their aim every time was to disrupt existing markets by offering a new sort of product"

"Given their sales and business results they seem to have succeeded in delivering a series of successful disruptions."

"Apple only makes things that in it's words 'deserve to exist', that is things made to Apple's standards "

"For much of the steepest parts of the iPhone and iPad growth trajectory it appeared that Apple was constrained by supply side limits, even though it has one of the world's best supply chain management systems. "

"The next Apple disruption will almost certainly come from some sort of wearable device. "

ROFL... Seriously Tony, do you actually read the stuff you write? You sound like a marketing exec touting the virtues of your company... I used to think you were just a pathetic basement-bound rabid fanboy, but now I really do have to wonder if you are being paid for this. To think you spend your own time to post such "rah rah" pro company crap is almost funnier.

What light through yonder window breaks... It is Apple, her golden hair waving in the wind and her supple skin glistening with anticipation.
