iPhone low-cost model rumors: leaked photo shows plastic rear shell

Nowhereelse.fr has published a pair of shots which capture the housing elements of the cheaper iPhone model.

The French site is known for its numerous leaks of information and images about new Apple products.

The pictures show a device with a round rear microphone hole and rounded rear edges, in line with previous reports about possible features of the device.

Update: Nowhereelse.fr has posted a new set of photos in which the smartphone appears in colors of green, red and yellow, which is consistent with claims that it will be available in several colors, most likely similar to the bumpers for the iPhone 4/4S.
