Courtesy of Apple tracker Sonny Dickson, a host of images purporting to show a grey or graphite next-gen iPhone are now sparkling before our eyes.
As has become his fashion, Dickson posted not one but a Thanksgiving-sized serving of grey iPhone 5S snaps. The phone is clearly lighter than the black we're used to from Cupertino's iDevices. The phone's backside features a black trim surrounding the new color.
We asked Dickson for confirmation on the authenticity of his source, and he reassured us that the source of the images "is 100% real." Of course, we remain skeptical until we have full confirmation from Apple, but below you can see what Dickson claimed is the gold iPhone 5S, grey iPhone 5S and black iPhone 5S cosying up to one another during screen production:
The iPhone 5S picture sharpens
Dickson's photos come after a report we brought you yesterday that showed a "gunmetal" grey SIM card tray supposedly belonging to an iPhone 5S. Interestingly, all of the grey iPhone 5S' in Dickson's images appear to be missing their SIM trays.
Apple is generally believed to be planning a Sept. 10 event to introduce the iPhone 5S and quite possible the iPhone 5C, a "cheaper" version of the iPhone.
On Sunday, Fox News anchor Clayton Morris tweeted twice with info on the iPhone 5S. According to Morris' sources, the phone's A7 chipset will be 31% faster than the silicon inside the iPhone 5.
Branching out from there, Morris followed up with word that the phone will have a dedicated motion tracking chipset, which "should be an interesting camera upgrade," he noted.
For all the latest on the iPhone 5S, head this way. If you're already interested in the iPhone 6, we've got the 411 for you too.
