There were murmurs about new color options being prepared for the upcoming iPhone, but we now have one more reliable analyst talking about the same. Ming-Chi Kuo is forecasting the newest line-up of Apple’s smartphones to come dressed in colors as varied as blue, orange, white, grey, red, black and gold. This will make for a good throwback to the time when the iPhone 5C was launched in similar shades.
The news that you may have missed is that this year will see three new iPhone models being unveiled. One will be an ‘iPhone X Plus’ with a 6.5-inch OLED display, the other will have a 6.1-inch LCD display and Face ID, while the third will just be a refresh of the 5.8-inch iPhone X we have right now. As per 9to5Mac, it’s the 6.1-inch LCD display-equipped iPhone that is supposed to come in varied color options.
Grey, white, blue, red and orange are the shades you can expect it to be available in. And as far as the new 6.5-inch OLED iPhone is concerned, it will apparently be sold in black, white and a new gold color. Now it’s highly possible that with white and grey, Ming-Chi Kuo is actually referring to space grey and silver finishes, but we can still see at least four new shades from Apple this year.
As for the red model, it’s not sure whether this refers to the (PRODUCT)RED handsets that Apple launches later on, or whether it refers to a color that will be available at launch. What’s exciting to know is that Apple’s color palette may finally see a big change this year. The last time the company had such vibrant devices was when the iPhone 5C was launched in green, blue, yellow, pink and white variants.
The new iPhones are expected to be launched this September. But until then, the leaks and rumors will keep making the picture clearer for you, so stay tuned.
