After several component leaks, rumors and speculations, we’ve finally started getting confirmation about the existence of the golden iPhone. Following TechCrunch and iMore, AllThingsD too is confirming a gold-tone iPhone 5S.
John Paczkowski of AllThingsD reports:
Sources in position to know tell AllThingsD that Apple, after years of offering the iPhone in either black and white, will soon offer it in a gold tone as well.
The new color option was described to AllThingsD as an “elegant” gold tone. “Think champagne, not ingot,” a source said, confirming what not seems to be some spot-on speculation from iMore last week. Sources say that the gold iPhone will feature a white face, with a gold-tone back plate and chamfered edging.
The golden tone will reportedly be similar to the yellow iPod touch 5G in color, except that it’ll be a bit lighter in shade.
