Lower-Cost iPhone Case Appears, Features Thicker Profile And Curved Edges

With WWDC out of the way, we can all turn our attention to the new hardware Apple is expected to release in the fall. With the iPhone 5S rumored to be pretty much the same as the iPhone 5, except of course a faster processor and hopefully some fancy new fingerprint technology, the lower-cost iPhone is getting most of our attention. As with all new devices before they launch, an Asian casemaker, MGM Corporation, has released a new case for what it expects the budget iPhone will look like.

A nice little video shows all the different angles of the case, and someone even slips in and iPhone 5 to really demonstrate the what size of phone the case is intended for. The case is about 2 mm thicker than the iPhone 5 and features rounded corners, instead of the iPhone 5’s much more squared shape.

It’s practically tradition for case makers to bet on what the next iDevice will look like, but that doesn’t necessarily mean they’re always accurate. While this case could very well prove to be a perfect fit for the still-rumored budget iPhone, it could also just easily be a terrible fit for it.
