iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus Tipped to Get a New ‘Jet White’ Colour Variant
Apple put all the speculations to rest by announcing the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus in September. The smartphones came bearing no headphone jack and one variant did indeed come with a dual camera setup. The smartphones were launched in five colours, with the new one being Jet Black, while the Black (Matte) colour was re-introduced. However, a fresh report now claims that the Cupertino giant plans to launch another ‘Jet White’ colour variant as well – which though a misnomer, can be thought to mean a glossy white colour variant.
Mac Otakara reports that the ‘Jet White’ colour variant will be introduced for the base 4.7-inch variant as well as the 5.5-inch Plus variant. The report even shared a concept image of how the ‘Jet White’ variant would look like. There is no mention of when Apple plans to launch the new colour variant in the market.Read more ↓
The publication also specifically notes that the source ‘may not be reliable’, so we recommend readers take the news with their own discretion. In any case, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are for now available in Gold, Rose Gold, Silver, Black (Matte), and Jet Black colour variants.
Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo recently also predicted that Apple will skip the refresh of its iPhone SE next year to keep its gross margins high and avoid cannibalisation of its high-end products. There is a year on year decline in Apple sale numbers, and instead of launching a cheaper substitute, the company could look to up those numbers with the help of a new colour variant.
In any case, leaks of next year’s iPhone 8 have started to pour in. 2017 will mark the ten-year anniversary of the iPhone, and Apple is anticipated to bring several new features to commemorate the occasion. The iPhone 8 is expected to sport big changes, and preliminary leaks indicate an OLED display panel, optical fingerprint recognition, an all-glass back, and a possible third variant.
