This Could Be Our First Look at a Colorful Budget iPhone

Just the other day we saw a beautiful budget iPhone backing that we're hoping is real, and now we're catching a glimpse of its colorful twin. Same sweet design, same heap of skepticism, but we just love imagining an incoming family of these colored bad boys.

Just like last time, the photos come from one Sonny Dickson, and we don't know much about him or where these supposed cases supposedly came from, so take these shots with as many grains of salt as you can stomach. We've reached out to Sonny to get his story.

We've had some fun imagining what the rumored budget iPhone would look like with a splash of color on it, and these shots are more food for iPhone daydreams. Consider it a thought experiment.

Dickson's questionably real case boasts a shade of lime green that's a bit less pastel than other imaginings, but one that still looks mighty fine. With a whole rainbow, we could be in for a nice break from that sleek but predictable black and white dichotomy.

It's still anybody's guess what the next iPhone announcement will really bring, and these unvetted shots don't do much to tip the scales one way or the other. But man, they are fun to think about. What do you think? Is this a peek into September's bounty? [Sonny Dickson via BGR]

I can't understand why Apple would even make a budget iPhone. The previous gen iPhones always get marked down when the latest comes out. I assume the specs of a budget iPhone would be something similar to what last gen was. So really what is the point?
