We’ve previously heard how the iPhone 8 will be available in three colours; gold, black, and silver/white, but a new report indicates that either the gold won’t be just plain ol’ gold, or there may be a fourth option referred to as “Blush Gold”.
This may fit with earlier leaks of the iPhone 8 in gold, which did have a slightly reddish, coppery colour to it. It also seems to have a lot in common with Apple’s existing Rose Gold colour and may simply be a re-branding.
Tipsters on Weibo are calling it “Blush Gold” and saying it’ll only be available in 64GB and 128GB storage models. At the same time, Benjamin Geskin has also revealed an image of the Blush Gold colour on Twitter – he adds that the name is used internally at Foxconn, Apple’s manufacturing partner.
KGI Securities’ Ming-chi Kuo has also said copper gold, black, and white are to be expected.
According to 9To5Mac the black version will be a shiny gloss finish, and the white/silver edition is dubbed “Pearl”. We doubt the black model will hit the market as “Shiny Black”, expect something a bit fancier like the old “Jet Black” model.
Danny Winget has also now gone hands-on on video with what’s reportedly an accurate dummy unit of the iPhone 8, complete with the Blush Gold colour scheme. You can see the full showcase below.
