  • Apple Rumored to Increase Color Options with This Year's iPhone 5S and Low-Cost iPhone


    According to a new rumor, both Apple’s next-gen iPhone and the company’s much anticipated low-cost iPhone will come in an array of colors that go well beyond the current black and white options. The rumors, which come from Macotakara are apparently heard from two separate sources. The report indicated that Apple’s anticipated low-cost iPhone will see a limited production of 1,000 units in June for field testing.

    Although the cheaper iPhone option is expected to be available in a range of colors, the report said that the black will remain exclusive to Apple’s flagship iPhone. One of the sources who spoke with the author said the cheaper iPhone will come in navy, gold, orange, white and gray. The other offered a slightly different range of colors which included white, pink, green, blue and yellow-orange.

    After the trial run in June, the low-cost iPhone is said to go into mass production between July and September before it ships to customers. The report claimed that Apple’s next flagship handset, which is often referred to as an “iPhone 5S,” will also get more colorful. Sources reportedly indicated that it will come in more than three colors.

    The latest rumors could potentially be supported by images that surfaced online last week showing multi-colored SIM trays alleged to be for a next gen iPhone. The SIM trays were shown in two colors, one of which was in a greyish hue and the other appeared to be golden or beige.

    Aside from the multiple colors, Macotakara also reported that the “iPhone 5S” is also expected to include a dual LED flash. Rumors have persisted for many years but have yet to become a reality. The report said that the duel LED will be accommodated with a pill-shaped space for the camera flash modules. The microphone space on the back would become a circle, moving away from the current tiny “pill” shape.

    If such colors were to come out, would you be interested in purchasing a different and more vibrant colored iPhone?

      And i wud love to own an iphone in one of those ipod colors. These fan made ones on the other hand are a little dull. And blaming apple for not giving you what you want is not the solution. If you are so anti apple, then u shud throw away your iphone and move on to an android or something. Ure anyway acting like a fagdroid. U might as well become one.
      Colors? Who said I wanted anything colored? All my devices are black! Clearly you don't know how to read as I said the new iPods look retarded being painted only on the back and not on the front! I've been in the Crapple store talking to employees and even they had made distasteful comments about the color scheme on the new iPod.

      Blaming Crapple for not giving me what I want?? LMAO, you better look around dumb dumb, plenty of other people on here and everywhere else who feel the same way. Clearly you've got your head too far up Crapple's APPLE to notice though

      I bet you're one of those lames who stand in line for days/hours when a new iDevice comes out. Come on tell the truth you are aren't you?

      I can bet you anything that even Samsung wants people to line up for their phones but that just doesn't happen.

      I live in india where there very limited marketing for iphones since there is no apple store here. Just a couple of apple resellers. If i cud, i wud stand in the line for weeks.
      And even though we have official samsung stores, i barely see more than 20 people inside it, forget a line!
      And f**k u for hating colors and being a racist.

      There's iPhone, and there's everything else. Just sayin'. As long as apple still makes beautiful, seamless products that the masses love, they will be the most popular and best selling phone on the market.

      If they make a "low cost" iPhone I honestly don't know what will happen. Last 2 generations of iPhones are already cheap enough. I hope they don't go the "pander to consumers every whim" way...

      Maybe $450 for iPhone 4 and $550 for iPhone 4S is cheap for you but certainly not for someone with a 5 figure salary.

      Most people don't pay full price for them. I know I didn't pay $850 for my iPhone 5...
      A decent flip phone will cost you $100-300 without contract, an iPhone 4 is free on some carriers, $50 on others, and the 4S is $100-150. That's NOT expensive.

      You are missing the whole purpose of a low cost iPhone. It'll be for people who buy phones contract free. For example, phones that work with Prepaid plans.

      I see where you are coming from, I still don't think apple will ever make an inferior product though, I don't see why they need to, they always sell more phones than they can make anyway. They have never made a "low cost" product yet....
