There is already a lot of speculation about the gold iPhone 5S, for the first time ever Apple is expected to offer this unique color. Purported high resolution pictures of a gold iPhone 5S casing have leaked online, giving us a glimpse of what the smartphone might look like in gold.
It was only a couple of weeks ago when we heard about the possibility of a gold iPhone 5S for the first time ever. Since then rumors have escalated. Almost every single day there seems to be a new rumor or leak about the iPhone 5S in gold. We’ve already seen pictures of the purported casing twice in the past, these are actually the first high resolution pictures that have leaked online.
A number of reports from various analysts claim that there is particular demand for gold color in markets like China and India. In China there are already a lot of local mobile phone manufacturers that offer their devices in gold color. These devices are said to be popular among the public. Furthermore, it is said that gold is actually the easiest color for Apple to anodize on an iPhone casing, thus it makes sense for the company to offer this color, one that it has never offered before.
The gold color is actually said to be a lot like champagne, it is not said to be over-the-top or tacky gold. One can see the light gold hue in these pictures, though there’s no way of confirming if the casing in these pictures does really belong to the iPhone 5S. For that we’ll have to wait until September 10th, when Apple is rumored to announce both new iPhones.
