Apple will spice up their iPhones and offer them in a variety of colors according to a new report. The website 9to5Mac reported that Apple will offer as many as eight colors in their upcoming new smartphones.
Expert Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo at TF International Securities tipped off that Apple will offer a rainbow of colors for their new iPhones this year. The sophomore successors to the iPhone X will allegedly be available in two sizes: 6.1-inch and 6.5-inch. While the original iPhone X only came in black and white, the new handsets will have a plethora of colors to pick from.
The report indicates that the 6.5-inch model will come in black, white or a new gold color. And the iPhone X with the 6.1-inch screen will be offered in red, white, blue, orange, and gray. Reportedly, the 6.5-inch screen will feature the higher-end and more vibrant OLED screen like the original iPhone X and the less expensive 6.1-inch iPhone will have a cheaper LCD display.
The cheaper model is rumored to have slim bezels, Face ID, and a price tag around the $700 neighborhood. Meanwhile, the OLED iPhone X Plus model will cost $1,000 and offer dual-SIM support. It is rumored that Apple will release a third iPhone in 2018 that is a refresh of the company’s 5.8-inch iPhone X with “some specification improvements.”
Apple has released a red iPhone in previous years, but that was limited edition model where the proceeds from the phones went to the (RED) charity, an organization that campaigns to fight HIV and AIDS in Africa.
Apple did release another iPhone in a plethora of colors back in 2013 with the iPhone 5c that had a polycarbonate back that came in green, blue, yellow, pink, and white. This could give Apple a slight advantage against rival Samsung, which generally only releases their handsets in three different colors.
