iPhone 7 Jet White Sonny Dickson 001

Japanese blog Mac Otakara heard last month from unverified sources in the Taiwanese supply chain that Apple might be developing a new Jet White color option for the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus series.

Yesterday evening, avid Apple leaker Sonny Dickson posted a video on Twitter that shows off glossy white iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus casing mockups, giving us an indication what the rumored Jet White colorway might look like. The mockups were clearly obtained from a third-party vendor and we’re posting them for the discussion’s sake.

Based on Dickson’s comment on Twitter, he’s unsure about the accuracy of the sketchy video. “Could this be the Jet White iPhone 7?”, reads his tweet.

Like many iPhone 7 mockups we saw in the run-up to the official introduction, this is most likely a third-party mockup obtained from one of Chinese resellers. For instance, the iPhone 7 model shown on the video does not have an Apple logo on the back.

Assuming Apple has been indeed working on a Jet White colorway for iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, the new color option may become available some time next year. In the past, the Cupertino company had famously spent months getting the appearance of the white iPhone 4 model right before making it available for purchase.

What do you guys think?

And while we’re at it, would you consider a Jet White iPhone 7?

    I think you meant “Jet White” in the title.

    • Shadowelite123

      Yea lol i was thinking that too.

    • Fixed, thanks

    It’d look slick with the black bezel on the front too… was hoping the person would turn it around. That said, the scratch thing keeps me away from any jet-colours.

    • Bill

      I’d imagine scratches would not be much of an issue with white. White tends to hide imperfections pretty well, at least on hard surfaces. Deep scratches would catch dirt and stuff and show up easily, I’ve had white plastic phones do this…but aluminum I think would be a different story.

      • diggitydang

        Agree with ya! I’m super OCD though, so knowing it’s there, even if you can only see it in certain light bugs me! Hahahaha…

    You can barely see the looks of it by the video’s quality.

    So, we have iPhone 7C 😀 this time it names “Premium”.
    But, nothing wrong, I liked white 5C

    • Jose Rivera

      I personally disliked a bunch of the colors because they were based off that white body. The pink was supposed to be red now that I remember… Hahaha I’m pretty sure the iPhone 5C would’ve been a whole lot different had they not used the white pigment mixed with the other pigments…

    Jet: a hard black semi-precious variety of lignite, capable of being carved and highly polished. The word “jet” can’t really be applied to a white object, it doesn’t mean “very”, it means very black.

    • Bill

      I think I’d like a pearl white, like the paint used on some Cadillacs or Lincolns. Or would that be gaudy?

      • Abhijeet Gupta

        If they could Make if like the ceramic sole watch, then I’m in. Ps it’s still a rumour, if a new colour comes, it will be be with next year’s model.
