While Apple has been dismissive of a plastic budget iPhone, reports will not go away. Adding to this is leaked images purported to be of a budget iPhone 5 made of plastic and destined for China.
This alleged budget iPhone is said to be slightly larger than the iPhone 5 by about half a millimeter in height and width. It is apparently an amalgam of a iPhone 5, the classic iPod, and the 5th gen iPod Touch, with a 4-inch display, the bottom like a iPod Touch, with an overall design is said to be close to the iPod classic.
The resolution is said to be 1,136 x 640, with the Gorilla Glass display being elevated slightly from the rest of the face similar to the iPhone 3G and 3GS. The rest of the body is said to be made from plastic.
