Multiple hardware versions of budget iPhone leaked

It sure didn’t seem much like something Apple would do when we first heard rumors that, alongside another iPhone flagship this year, the company would also introduce a new lower-end iPhone, with the intent to improve sales in developing markets. Despite any initial misgivings, we’ve been seeing more and more evidence in recent months to support that theory. Today a new twist on it arrives, with the leak of some documents that may suggest we’ll see more than one version of this budget iPhone.

Though we just get bits and pieces of what appear to be a larger set of documents here, we can see mention of Zenovo, Zagato, and Bertone hardware. Zenovo is depicted running a different processor from Zagato/Bertone – but these H5P and H6P chips (possibly made by Samsung) are wholly unknown to us.

Honestly, this whole thing is a little fishy. While there’s a fair amount of technical data here, a lot looks pretty sloppy. And what about those names? All three appear to reference high-end Italian cars – either designers or models themselves. That really doesn’t resonate as Apple’s modus operandi.

In any case, even if this is accurate, don’t expect to see multiple budget iPhones for sale everywhere – the radio options here suggest a Chinese destination for at least some of these models.
