The Next iPhones Will Come in Too Many Colors

Apple is set to launch new iPhone devices sometime around September. The company is expected to launch three new iPhone devices this year — a refreshed 5.8-inch iPhone X, a 6.1-inch LCD iPhone with slim bezels, and a larger 6.5-inch OLED display iPhone with dual-SIM support. All the new iPhones will sport a design similar to the current iPhone X, though the LCD variant (and likely the 5.8-inch variant) is expected to lack dual-camera system.

According to a new report from 9to5Mac based on data from reliable Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple is going to add a bunch of color options with this year’s iPhones. The $1000 6.5-inch iPhone will come in a new gold variant, along with the usual black (Space Grey) and white (Silver) finishes. But the smaller, $700 6.1-inch LCD iPhone, will come in blue, red, and orange, plus the Space Grey and Silver variants.

That’s a lot of colors and options for consumers. Apple likely won’t charge different prices for the different colors, but the new colour options should be welcome by most consumers, mainly because it will make their own device look different from everyone else’s. Some could have trouble making a purchase because of all the different color options, though that shouldn’t be too much of a problem.

If the report does end up becoming true, this will be the first time Apple is launching an iPhone with so many color options right off the bat. The company’s iPhone 5C launched in a lot of different colors, and this year’s 6.1-inch LCD iPhone will be the same, too. It will be interesting to see, however, if the red variant is PRODUCT(RED) like the special edition iPhone 8.
