Upcomming two new iphone’s : 5s and 5c
If you’ve dreaming about a gold-colored iPhone, this may be good news you’ve been waiting for. Apple is reportedly adding a gold color option to its current white and black iPhones. Apple is set to unveil the next iPhone, or iPhones if reports are to be believed, which will most likely be called the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C. The gold option will be on the iPhone 5S as that is the one with anodized aluminum casing. The iPhone 5C will have a plastic finish according to leaks and rumors.
The gold on the iPhone 5S is just a finish, not real gold as that would cost too much. The report on the gold-colored iPhone firt came out from news site iMore then it was corroborated by TechCrunch, 9to5Mac and AllThingsD.
The new color option thankfully is not a sparkling or bright gold as that would just look cheap. The gold color is said to be an “elegant” gold tone closer to champagne. The gold color will not cover the entire phone, just the edges and the back panel. The front glass will be white and even the back will have white accents on top and at the bottom. Here is a rendering of that golod-colored iPhone.
Gold is not a popular color but there it will still have a lot of fans for sure. Gold is a reasonable choice for Apple since it’s reported that it’s among the easiest colors to anodize. Apple is getting flak for being boring and for not taking risks and offering a gold option is probably it’s way of making things exciting again.
Recently, we got three new ‘leaks’ about the company’s upcoming budget handset. First is about its design and construction. Second is regarding its imaging capabilities. And third, we finally got word – albeit unofficial – about its price and release date.
According to ‘insiders’, Apple’s new midrange smartphone called iPhone 5C will flaunt an opaque polycarbonate unibody shell. As opposed to earlier reports stating that the device will come with a translucent case similar to the iMac G3 or an aluminum body just like the iPod Touch 5th Generation, they’re now saying that the phone will feature a rather thick and tough plastic shell reminiscent of that of iPhone 3GS or even Nokia Lumia 720 as shown in the image above. It is also said that the case will come in various vibrant hues, which could support the unfounded claim that the C in the name iPhone 5C actually stands for Color.
Hardcore, geeky Apple fans were quick to note that this is largely the same as the module found on the iPhone 4S suggesting that iPhone 5C will have the same 8 MegaPixel camera as the former. Interestingly, iPhone 5 also has an 8 MP cam, which means that if its flagship follow-up – the Apple iPhone 5S – were to be deemed superior to 5C, it has to have a far more powerful camera.
Finally, ‘analysts’ have given word on the projected retail price and release date of iPhone 5C. They say that the budget smartphone will most likely be announced by Apple by mid-September and should hit store shelves in key markets before September ends. As for the price tag, according to them, the handset will cost around $450 USD to $550 or roughly Php 21,500 to Php 24,000, which isn’t really as cheap as most Apple fans would want it to be.
