Yesterday we posted a video showing a hands-on video of the rumoured lower-cost iPhone shell in green. Here’s a different video posted by YouTube user DetroitBORG shows the exact same shell we saw yesterday but in white, and compared to other iPhone models in the same colour. Check it out below:

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen a hands-on with this purported shell in white, as the last video we’ve seen was to advertise an Android phone in the same body, called the ‘Basic Bear’.

The so-called ‘lower-cost’ iPhone with a plastic back is rumoured to launch this fall, along with the iPhone 5S and newer iPads.

    So much use of the word “plastic” when talking about this version but the 3GS was a non- metallic housing as well?
