There are a variety of colors to choose from right now with the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, including a (PRODUCT) RED option, but that may not be the case with the iPhone 8.
The most recent rumor suggested the upcoming flagship iPhone (and maybe even the successors to the aforementioned models) may only come in three colors: Black, Gold, and Silver. Since then, however, a color that has either been called “Champagne Gold” or “Copper Gold” has surfaced in different ways, suggesting that the gold color we know in the iPhone lineup right now might get tweaked for this year’s release.
Now, thanks to Benjamin Geskin and Ben Miller, who both have shared new looks at the “Copper Gold” color variant, we’ve got new pre-release images to stare at ahead of the iPhone 8’s expected announcement next month.
Starting with Geskin, we’ve got a pair of renders that he shared via his Twitter account (@VenyaGeskin1). The first is a front-and-back render (pictured above), showing what the front of the handset will look like with its edge-to-edge OLED display, the “notch” design, and very minimal bezels. Meanwhile, on the back, there’s that dual camera setup, oriented vertically, and the familiar Apple logo. The second render Geskin shared looks more in line with Apple promotional materials, and it looks strikingly shiny, too.
Meanwhile, Ben Miller (@bensen) has a dummy unit of the iPhone 8 in Copper Gold, and it shares that similar sheen as the render, due in part thanks to the glass back. The key difference with the dummy unit and the render, though, is that the render has a black front for the notch design, and the dummy unit has a white notch design. The devices do look quite a bit different with just the simple color change up front.
We also get to see the dummy unit put up against a current iPhone 7 Plus, where the lack of bezels really stands out.
We’ve seen this notch design more than a few times now, and, thanks to the HomePod firmware we can expect it to be the final design Apple goes with for the upcoming flagship smartphone. Based on this design are you looking forward to the iPhone 8?
