Folks at DigiTimes say that Apple’s low cost iPhone could be outfitted with plastic chassis. So, Apple would not use usual glass or metal body if it launches iPhone for low budget-customer segment.

The use of plastic body will help company cuts the cost in making cheaper iPhone, according to Taiwan-based DigiTimes’ unnamed supply chain sources. However, there are other rumors as well and they suggest that this cheap iPhone can be made of a mixture of plastic and metal. Maybe, users will be able to see all the hardware from outside.

DigiTimes also says that phone’s body would reportedly be made by US a based electronic manufacturer. If all the sources are believed, the phone may be introduced in the market in the second half of this year. Still, a single rumor cannot be completely credible.

On the other hand, even if the company does not make a low cost iPhone, it can use plastic body to keep costs down, and everybody knows that Apple keeps searching ways to keep costs down.

So, all we can do is wait for the middle of the year. What else we can do?
