Rumor: Apple To Introduce iPhone 7 In New ‘Deep Blue’ Color Instead Of Space Gray

A new rumor surfaced from East Asia suggesting that the upcoming iPhone 7 to ditch the extremely popular Space Grey color option, with a shade that’s more on the blue side of things.

With iPhone 7 launch set for an official reveal this coming September, the speculation to date has focused on all potential design and internal specifications of the hardware. Now being suggested that Apple could look forward to introduce a new ‘Deep Blue’ colour in place of the Space Gray option.

This particular claim emerged into the public domain citing the usual Chinese supply chain leaks as the source of the info. Inside that prediction, the unnamed source has tipped at the potential for the next iPhone 7 to be available in Rose Gold, Silver, Gold and a new Deep Blue option, meaning that if Apple plans to roll with four color configurations then it’s most probably the Space Gray variant that will be fixed.

If this happens to be accurate then Apple would even be considering dumping the Space Gray option in favor of a deeper blue configuration. It’s extremely difficult to get a deeper understanding of how popular the Space Gray option actually is amongst iPhone owners. With that said, the chances are that you’ll clock a fairly high number of devices manufactured from 2013 onwards that are finished in Space Gray.

Moving away from that, the same report, citing the same sources, has also suggested that Apple will continue using the same LCD display technology in its 2016 flaghsip hardware. Recent reports have also been suggested that the Mac maker will move across to OLED display tech in future iPhone models, but that is now likely to happen in 2017 due to Apple moving across to a release cycle that will see a major new iPhone revamped every three years.

Although the Apple’s WWDC 2016 just around the corner we aren’t far off from getting an official glimpse of iOS 10 – the firmware that will ship with the iPhone 7, nevertheless, need some patience and wait a little bit longer for the device itself.
