iPhone 6s rose gold Daliulian 004

KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who is arguably the most reliable Apple analyst on the planet, predicted back in June that Apple’s forthcoming ‘iPhone 6s’ and ‘iPhone 6s Plus’ refresh would introduce a new color option: rose gold.

No, not the full 18-karat rose gold body like the Apple Watch but rather a coat of paint, but still… A batch of images surfaced Tuesday on Chinese social media are now making the rounds, allegedly depicting an iPhone 6s in rose gold (or pink, depending on your sense of color).

Have a look and tell us what you think in the comments.

And here’s what it looks like.

As you can see for yourself top of post, the volume buttons and the sleep/wake button are also in pink/rose gold. I am not sure that I’m liking what I’m seeing because those antenna lines on the back are even more visible on a pink backplate.

Be that as it may, the positive response from users “has been enormous” as “hundreds of thousands of people have shared the pictures” online, as Cult of Mac’s Luke Dormehl put it.

What do you think?

Is this the real deal or just some guy’s meticulous paint job?

    Not sure, the touch id doesn’t have a pink outline.

  • derp

    This one’s for the females. No guy is getting this.

    • Freddy Born

      yes, because there are no gay people in this world.

      • igorsky

        So this phone would be for females or gay people? Awesome posts.

      • Strait guy here and I love pink, if you know what I mean…

      • mahe

        If you are man enough you can also wear pink stuff.

      • Yep no problem wearing it either.

      • Freddy Born

        I am just adjusting…

      • John Wickham

        Ah right, it’s pink so gay men would want it… C’mon.

    • Sir.Rhommi

      Pink was originally a color for boys… I’d get it.

      • Rowan09

        When was this?

      • Gregg

        Said no. One. Ever.

      • Sir.Rhommi

        Research before claim to know.

    • Drapnel

      heterosexual male here and that thing looks dope to me

    • n0ahcruz3

      Im straight and i would get a pink phone lol

    • Jason Baroni

      So you need a black phone to compensate your sex appeal?

  • Anibal Schumacher

    That’s not rose gold…

    • Hi

      Seriously? You liked your own comment?

      • Anibal Schumacher

        I do! Lol

      • Hi


    • QuarterSwede

      He’s right. My wedding band has rose gold in it and this is way too pink to be called rose gold.

  • Hi

    That colour is what i call BRIGHT -SMACK YOU IN THE FACE- PINK

  • Fake

    This is fake. The logo on the back is gold when it should be pink and the buttons on the side are also gold when they shouldn’t be.

  • Riley Freeman

    Do you guys even know what rose gold is? This is pink. This is not even remotely close to anything rose gold

  • peto7532159

    this is ugly

  • I’d say these are fake. Also, it’s pink, not gold.

  • Manuel Molina

    I say real. iPods got pink, and as you mentioned, the source is the most reliable of them all.

  • iDude

    hope this is true, my wife would love it!

    • Kaptivator

      If its more rose gold than this pink…My wife will be sold as well.

  • n0ahcruz3

    When ming chi speaks u better believe it, his track record is the most accurate of all…

  • Jamessmooth

    Hard to tell whether this is fake or not, but I do believe a rose gold color option seems like it would appeal to the Chinese market. Plus females would probably like it too.

  • SMH

    You ‘reporters’ need to stop lol. Champagne….Rose gold… Just stop. It’s embarrassing….

  • Rowan09

    I just want a black face, gold Touch ID outline and a gold back and I’m good.

  • Mike Colacone Saal

    The gold with the black from the post from yesterday is all that matters!

    • iPhoneWINS

      now that is crazy

  • Eli Montoya

    “Rose gold”… Do you mean pink???? I think you mean pink.

  • robotnyk

    I’m not saying it’s not going to happen, but the photos look fake AF.

  • Bugs Bunnay

    “but rather a coat of paint.” Try anodized.

  • MinkShoals

    My wife would like it. Looks like it’s already ready to go! 😉

  • How dumb are you people… 10 second in Photoshop. Adjust>Hue/Saturation boom. PINK iPhone.

  • Brandon

    looks like a super bad photoshop job lol. Its like all he/she did was tinker with hue, saturation, etc.

  • Alberto Espinal

    This is straight pink, rose gold its a totally different color

  • port87

    looks strawberry milk colored to me. its a nice color to go with Valentines Day, I like it.

    Seriously? Did Captain Obvious just get promoted to Captain Planet?

    This guy’s a nobody. As if anyone doesn’t know how to come up with obvious educated predictions and throwing up some more hoping it sticks.

  • Christopher Triffitt

    Pink used to be a mans colour and I still like pink

    • iPhoneWINS

      mow its a gay mans color…
