Low-Cost iPhone may come in Two Models Code Named Zenvo and Zagato/Bertone

Apple’s rumored low-cost iPhone (possibly called the iPhone Lite) could come in two different models, according to a new set of leaked documents found on Chinese social media site Weibo. The two versions of the upcoming handset, code named Zenvo and Zagato/Bertone, will apparently look the same but come equipped with different processors and antennas.

The Zenvo appears to be the cheaper model of the two, sporting a 4-inch display, a Samsung-made HP5 dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, Bluetooth 4.0 and FDD 4G connectivity. The Zagato/Bertone is apparently an enhanced model with a H6P processor and TDD 4G LTE connectivity, suggesting this version is headed for China where that type of cell signal is supported.

The latest batch of leaked documents concerning the low-cost iPhone leave a lot to be desired, and we seriously doubt they come directly from Apple, though it is possible they were put together by someone with direct knowledge of the rumored handset. Either way, we still expect the budget-friendly iPhone to land sometime between now and the fall in a variety of color options, though it’s still unclear if the device will be available in the U.S. or only in emerging markets.
