YouTuber Marques Brownlee has managed to get his hands on one of Apple’s new (PRODUCT)RED iPhone 7 devices announced yesterday and has now posted an unboxing video on his YouTube channel. Mimicking the handset’s white front face and its vibrant red aluminum casing, product packaging features a white box with red text and red iPhone graphics. The manual that’s shipping in the box sports red branding as well.

Aside from visual differences, the (PRODUCT)RED iPhone 7 Plus box contains a charging cable and Lightning-based EarPods like with regular models. Brownlee thinks the device’s heavily saturated finish makes for the pretties iPhone yet.

“This thing is really red and really good looking,” he quipped.

The device has a matte finish to it rather than the super smooth finish of Jet Black iPhones.

This is a good thing because fingerprints and smudges are not as noticeable as one might suspect. Brownlee, like other people, thinks Apple should have made the front of the device red instead of white.

And here’s the unboxing video from Marques.

The new (PRODUCT)RED iPhones will be available in 128GB and 256GB models starting at $749 from Apple.com and Apple Stores and from Apple Authorized Resellers and select carriers ahead of launch this Friday, March 24, in more than 40 countries around the world.

Apple is the world’s largest corporate donor to the Global Fund, having contributed more than $130 million as part of its partnership with (RED) in the past ten years.

    This iPhone is absolutely gorgeous and it’s a shame they didn’t have the touch ID ring in red otherwise it would be perfect

    • Jose Rivera

      That’s how I feel about it… The red ring would’ve made the look feel complete at least… Im a little mad they didn’t do that…

  • Rob

    That does look good, if only there were blue

    • burge

      It’s called product RED for a reason.

      It does though need the choice of black or white bezel

      • Rob

        I think u took my post the wrong way, I like the colour and the good cause behind it, I was just expressing my desire for another colour in the product line. I said ‘if only THERE were blue’ not ‘If only THEY’ were blue’.

        They do need a choice of white or black front, my ideal phone would be anodised blue with a black front, oh yeeeaaah!

  • Abhijeet Gupta

    Red ring around the Touch ID is a deal
    Breaker for me.

  • Tommy

    looks too much like an iPod or a cheaper device. Red looks fantastic, needs a black front. I don’t mind the touch id ring with the silver color because of the front being white.

    • Eddie Jhay

      Definitely needs a Black Front!

  • Just saying what you’re thinki

    The front of the phone being white broke me id like it all in red the back looks great though but the white front makes it look like an old ipod

  • KindQueen

    It would be more gorgeous if the front is black, black & red, classic colors. Red iphone 7 + red BE3 Aluminum Alloy Bluetooth Earphone, prefect!
