Is This A Case For Apple's Budget iPhone?
A new video purportedly showing a case for the upcoming budget iPhone is making the rounds. The video, which shows a case designed by Japan’s MGM Corp., was first noticed by Macotakara. As you can see, the case is designed for a phone with rounded edges, and a slightly thicker frame than the iPhone 5. There is space for a rear-facing camera, plus room for volume controls on the left side. According to the report, the case is approximately 2 millimeters thicker than one for the iPhone 5. Take a look: Naturally, there is no way to confirm the authenticity of the case highlighted in this video. However, the case does match specifications of previous “iPhone mini” rumors.

Rumors have suggested that Apple may price the model at under $200 to appeal to developing nations such as China, and India.
