Apple may be going bolder and golder with their next phone
For months, Apple’s upcoming iPhone 8 has been the subject of intense speculation, inspiring a seemingly endless stream of leaks about the design of the phone, its features, and more. As the phone’s official unveiling supposedly approaches—it is believed, but not confirmed, that the final version will be made public in September—Silicon Valley’s most-coveted smartphone is now rumored to be receiving a make-over. That is, there’s apparently a brand-new color for the iPhone.
In a video uploaded to YouTube, tech blogger Danny Winget provides what is allegedly a full view of a dummy model of the iPhone 8. The item is simply a shell, and has no actual functionality, but its appearance is what’s worth noting here. Winget’s video showcases a completely different look for the iPhone line: “copper gold,” a departure from the phone’s white, black, gold, rose gold, and silver iterations of the past. Though Winget doesn’t profess to be a fan of the aesthetic decision, his crisp, clear video allows you to shape your own judgment on the design.
Commenters on Winget’s video shared a range of responses to the new color, indicating that this new look, if real, isn’t exactly a home run.
“It could be nice if it was like a shiny copper, like one of the old deep sea diving helmets with black/silver/gold bezels, but that’s terrible,” said one viewer.
Another chimed in with an even less-charitable take.
“That color should be named “gross gold,” he said.
One defended the tone, but with reservations.
“I love that copper color,” they said. “I think if they make the back look more metallic, then it would look beautiful.”
Concrete details about the phone remain scarce, and the rumor mill continues to churn out more gossip about the device, so, as always, exercise skepticism toward whatever leaks you may read. Until we know more, get the most out of your current iPhone by using a trick that will save you gigabytes of space.
