- Picture: Moumantai
An image of the nano-SIM trays that could either be for the iPhone 5S or iPhone 6 leaked onto the internet this week.
The parts originated from Japanese part shop Moumantai. The store posted a pair of photos showing what it claims to be the nano-SIM tray for the iPhone 5S. The report also states that the components were available in both gray and bronze/gold colors.
The picture of these two trays should not be taken too seriously as they are almost identical to the parts used in the current iPhone model.
A rear shell that could be for the low-cost version of the iPhone 5S or iPhone 6 also reportedly surfaced last week.
The photo was provided by the case manufacturer known as Tactus. This is one of the companies that designed cases for the fifth-generation iPad. The company's photo showcases what is said to be the rear shell of Apple's rumored lower-cost iPhone.
This part is consistent with iLounge's January description, stating that the low-cost iPhone would sport a design similar to the iPod classic, with a flat back and curved edges along with a shift to elongated volume buttons on the left side.
The report also shares a number of other claims made about the device in the past including an A5 chip, 5-megapixel rear camera, and five color options including black, white, blue, red, and yellow. The device is also rumored to have a 3.5-inch Retina display. This detail conflicts with a recent report from Ming-Chi Kuo's recent claims, which point to the low-cost handset having the same 4-inch screen as the iPhone 5.
The device will launch on Oct. 15 and will cost $300. This will probably the price for the iPhone without a contract as with a new 2-year agreement it might end up being very cheap or free, according to the report from Tactus. The rear shell is 0.4-0.6 mm.
