Color trends fluctuate, and sometimes they come out of nowhere, and this is not an exception with the gist about iPhone 8. This latest trend that threatens to invade the smartphone market came out of the blue. Or, in this case, brown. It may have started with a Copper Gold Nokia 8 leak, but it’s even stranger that Apple is following suit. Or maybe Nokia just got whiff of what Apple was planning and immediately set out to copy it.
The possible copper like colour of the iPhone 8 became a topic of discussion among iPhone followers and users on social media. This colour did not receive popularity by the social media community.
How did this iPhone 8 copper like colour become a trending topic?
Well, the rumor was shared on Twitter by Benjamin Geskin, who cites a post on Weibo from a “Foxconn insider.” Considering the source, the claim might be taken with a pretty hefty grain of salt.
There is a less detailed information on what the iPhone 8 colour will look like: Last Tuesday, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said all of Apple’s upcoming 2017 iPhones would be available in black, silver, and gold, but he made no specific mention of the copper-like coluor, which began appearing in several videos of dummy iPhone 8 models following the original Weibo post. The potential colors that the OLED iPhone will come in has become more of a talking point since references in the HomePod firmware seemingly confirmed that Apple’s radical redesign would be almost bezel-free with a notch at the top for camera components. KGI’s Ming-Chi Kuo claimed that the iPhone 8 will come in three colour choices including copper gold, white, and black. Kuo also added that the iPhone 8 will launch on time alongside the iPhone 7s, though it will be in limited in terms of supply.
Interestingly, there is also a strong report claiming that Apple will only offer the Gold iPhone 8 in the 64GB and 128GB capacities. Apple currently limits the Jet Black iPhone 8 to the 128GB and 256GB capacities, but it’s a bit odd that the Blush Gold model would be limited to the 64GB and 128GB, not the highest end model.
In no time a confirmation or disapproval will be given to the projection of the iPhone 8 colour.
