New images leaked online show a possible gold-finish iPhone 5S model.
The images, posted over the weekend on French Apple-focused site MacBoutic, show a new gold coloured finish applied to a shell that closely matches previously leaked photos of the iPhone 5S.
If genuine, the flashy colour scheme would be a step away from Apple’s tradition of two-tone black and white options for previous iPhone and iPad models. The shell would also validate previous rumours of a wide range of colours being available for the iPhone 5S.
While there have been no previous leaks of any iPhone 5S components in any new colours, brightly-coloured volume buttons for Apple’s rumoured budget iPhone 5C phone were leaked last week. The budget phone’s model prefix is supposedly said to stand for ‘Colour’, suggesting that its diverse palette is not to be necessarily matched in the 5S.
Genuine or not, many if not all rumours concerning the new iPhone models are sure to be dispelled on September 10th, when Apple is said to be hosting a press event.
