iphone 5s gold trifecta

Photos of the back plate for the next-gen iPhone in gold have cropped up online alongside the current edition, giving us a glimpse at how the fresh colourway will look.

Snapped alongside black and white models of the iPhone 5, the photo suggest that rather than the gaudy gold colourway of some tech-scribes’ imaginations, the handset will feature a subtler shade, probably best described as ‘champagne’.

And there’s scant sign of radical changes elsewhere too. As earlier leaks have shown, the new photos indicate that the placement and design of the iPhone 5S’s fixtures and fittings (SIM try, buttons, volume rocker) will remain unchanged.

Earlier this month, reports surfaced claiming that the golden edition of the iPhone 5S could come in a super-deluxe 128GB edition and will be aimed principally at the bling-fancying middle-classes in China.

Either way the handset, whether it’s gold, black, white, or some combination of the above, is set to debut on September 10th with improvements that take in a beefier processor and upgraded camera with dual flash.

It’s nigh-on certain to be accompanied by the low-cost iPhone 5C, which purportedly ditches premium materials for a cheap-as-chips plastic frame and will come in a suite of garish/youthful colour options.

Both phones are forecast to pack security-boosting fingerprint-scanning technology.
