    Following rumors suggesting Apple's iPhone 7 will be available in a much darker Space Gray color that's close to, but not quite black, designer Martin Hajek has created renderings exploring what such a device might look like.

    Using the iPhone 7 design rumors pointing towards a larger camera, no headphone jack, and relocated antenna bands, Hajek has created an iPhone 7 rendering in a deep shade of gray that's close to the color of the Space Black Apple Watch.

    In Hajek's concept, the iPhone 7 is a much darker shade of gray than the Space Gray iPhone 6s, appearing even darker than the black and slate iPhone 5.

    Over the years, Apple has used several different shades of Space Gray, Black, and Slate across the iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Apple Watch product lines, with some shades that are much darker than others. Apple's most recent products, the iPhone 6s and the iPad Pro, feature a light shade of Space Gray, and a darker Space Gray could differentiate the iPhone 7 from earlier devices.

    Rumors of a darker Space Gray or Space Black iPhone 7 first surfaced earlier this week, when Japanese site Mac Otakara clarified that a rumor suggesting a deep blue iPhone 7 was in the works was mistaken. The site, which reported the deep blue color in early June, said its source had misidentified a darker space gray for a shade of blue.

    Apple is expected to introduce the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus in September with an iPhone 6s-style design, no headphone jack, an A10 processor, a better camera (larger sensor for the iPhone 7 and dual-lens for the iPhone 7 Plus), and faster LTE and Wi-Fi. Unconfirmed possible features include a flush home button, improved water resistance, and a thinner body.

    This will be the most popular if true. I'd definitely get it.

    I love the look, but I lack the courage to use a phone without a case.

    There had better be a 'dark mode' for iOS if this is real...

    That would be the most attractive iPhone since the iPhone 4s. Do it.

    I like the really dark look but I am waiting for next year if the design is like the 6S.

    This is it, this is where everything aligns. A super dark iPhone 7 to go with the iOS 10 Dark Mode to be announced at the same time.

    How do you make the iPhone 7 sound less underwhelming? You do this.

    I pray almost every day for system wide dark modes for iOS and macOS.

    Honestly, why can't they simply make a black phone these days?

    There are two kinds of people in this world: people who want radical redesigns and people who want refinement. I fall in the latter camp. Take an existing design and make the best possible version of it. If that's what the iPhone 7 accomplishes, it would be, in my opinion, the best iPhone release ever.

    “We sent our design team to the farthest reaches of our galaxy – and they came back with something very special. Introducing, Apple Deep Space Gray. It’s a beautiful color only the team at Apple could have imagined.”

    Can you imagine how skewed one's priorities would end up being if you bought a car based on its colour alone?
    A car that hadn't had a proper redesign in years yet cost the same as it did back then? Nah. Surely not .....:rolleyes:

    If this is true- this is very smart for the folks that need to have the 'new' phone to upgrade.

    I really hope it doesn't end up looking that good, because I'm not buying one :p

    Seriously, I think there should be a darker iPhone. I don't object to the pink and gold ones if that's people want, but I think a lot of people would like a black/very dark model.
