Whether it will be called iPhone 5S or iPhone 6, Apple’s next-generation high-end smartphone is undoubtedly expected by many iOS enthusiasts.
While its new features will probably not include a higher resolution display (the current 4 inch, 1136 x 640 pixels screen found on the iPhone 5 should still be enough), we might see more than two color versions of the handset – for the first time in the history of iPhone launches.
Japanese website Macotakara says the iPhone 5S / 6 might have green and gold color versions, in addition to the classic black and white ones. Another novelty should be a dual-LED flash for the rear camera.
Macotakara also reports that the long-rumored cheaper iPhone will have various color versions as well. But the website’s sources are contradictory, saying the cheaper handset will come in either White, Navy, Gold Orange, and Gray, or in White, Blue, Green, and Yellow-orange. In both cases, there is no black edition.
Production for the new cheap iPhone could start in June, with shipping expected to commence in September. As for the high-end iPhone 5S / 6, this is also expected to debut around September.
If you think a green or gold iPhone is too weird to be true, it’s worth mentioning that Apple’s iPod Touch 5 does offer some funky color options (see above). So this isn’t just a far-fetched idea. But we’ll see what happens anyway.
