We’ve been hearing rumors of Apple launching three new iPhones this year – The first one being a refresh to the current gen 5.8-inch iPhone X, an iPhone X Plus which is touted to be the most premium variant with a 6.5-inch OLED display, and a cheaper 6.1-inch iPhone with an LCD display panel. While this isn’t any news, a new report by 9to5Mac states that reliable analyst, Ming-Chi Kuo, has tipped that the new 6.5-inch iPhone will come in Black, White as well as a new Gold color, while the cheaper 6.1-inch variant will come in multiple colors namely Grey, White, Blue, Red, and Orange.
If the report turns out to be true, then it’s a first for Apple to be releasing multiple color options other than the usual black and silver, of course, the iPhone 5c being an exception. The iPhone 5c, however, was not a flagship iPhone by any means and came with a polycarbonate back as opposed to a metallic one on its elder siblings. Apple typically debuts an iPhone in red color mid-way through its cycle as a Product RED offering to support organizations fighting against HIV and AIDS in Africa.
Apple was planning to launch a Gold variant of the iPhone X this time as well according to a few FCC certifications that came to light. However, it seems to have skipped it in the last moment due to some issues. 9to5Mac has made a few renders indicating how the new iPhones in these colors might turn out to be, as shown above.
We’re just a couple of months away from seeing what the new iPhones are going to look like, and we seem to stumble upon a new leak or rumor each day regarding the specifications or how the display panels are going to look like. While we expected Apple to launch a new iteration of the iPhone SE during WWDC, we weren’t too surprised that it didn’t happen, as the market now seems to be moving towards the dominance of a larger screen. The 6.1-inch iPhone we discussed about might just be the iPhone for the masses as it’s reportedly going to be the cheapest of the three, thereby replacing the iPhone SE, minus the small form factor.
