Photos of iPhone 7/Plus dummies (or are they?) in Gold surface on the web

iPhone 7 backside teaser leak 001

Crisp images of alleged iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus devices in Gold surfaced today, first discovered by Czech blog Letem svetem Applem. According to mobile peripheral website Topp Ten, which provided the images, the phones will be offered in a Deep Blue variant replacing Space Gray, in addition to existing Rose Gold, Gold and Silver colorways. It’s also possible that the pictures show iPhone 7 dummies, which are readily available from sites like AliExpress.

Certification markings and warning labels can be seen on the backside, suggesting the pictured devices, assuming they’re genuine, could be non-US iPhones.

The images you’re seeing are certainly consistent with the iPhone 7 rumors that have been floating around the blogosphere, including no headphone jack, cleaner antenna seams on the backside, a single-lens camera on the 4.7-inch model and a dual-lens shooter on the 5.5-incher and more.

It’s unclear from the images whether the Home button is a mechanical one like on prior iPhones or a rumored new non-moving Home button that should use force sensors and utilize haptic feedback to provide a clicking sensation.

Japanese blog Mac Otakara, the original source of the Deep Blue iPhone 7 rumor, later clarified that the actual color is more akin to the Space Black Apple Watch finish.
