MyDrivers today shared images of what appear to be purported iPhone 8 dummy units that originally surfaced on Chinese microblogging service Weibo, depicting three possible colorways for the upcoming OLED-based iPhone: White, Black and Champagne Gold.
The latter option is “closer in copper” in its color and visually similar to Rose Gold devices.
UPDATE: Here are a few more images, via leak aggregator SlashLeaks.
We cannot vouch for the authenticity of these photographs, but they do seem to depict dummy units rather than actual devices so we’re re-posting them here for the discussion’s sake.
According to prolific smartphone leaker Benjamin Geskin, iPhone 8 could include a fourth, mirror-like reflective version which hasn’t been used for iPhones before. Seen below is a side-by-side comparison between that standard Black color option and the new Copper Gold.
The backside includes minimal bezels around the sides and a vertically aligned dual-camera system with what appears to be LED flash built into the bulge, between the two lenses.
KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicted that the OLED iPhone would offer fewer casing colors than the LCD-based iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus models in order to “maintain its boutique image”.
What would be your preferred color option for iPhone 8?
