Amidst all the rumors of the iPhone 8 design, the placement of the Touch ID sensor, and whether the phone will ship with a wireless charger or not, a new rumor has popped up surrounding the color of the handset. Since the beginning of this week, there have been two leaks that point to Apple launching the iPhone 8 with a mirror-like finish.
The color will be similar to the iPhone 2G and has been internally codenamed as ‘O7.’ It is likely that Apple will launch this new color option as a throwback to the original iPhone on its tenth anniversary.
The Jet Black iPhone 7 was already known for its mirror-like finish, but with this new color scheme, Apple wants to take things to a completely different level. The finish will presumably be similar to many of Sony’s Xperia handsets that have a highly reflective mirror-like finish at the rear.
While a mirror-like finish might attract a lot of female customers, it would also end up making the phone a fingerprint and smudge magnet thereby necessitating the use of a case.
As per Twitter leaker Benjamin Geskin, the iPhone 8 will be available in four colors, with the mirror-like finish being the new addition. The other colors should be similar to Apple’s existing offerings, with the Product(RED) color option likely being given the boot.
