Apple's rumored iPhone 5se may come in Silver, Space Gray, and a pink shade that's different than the Rose Gold of the iPhone 6s, reports Japanese site Mac Otakara [Google Translate], citing information obtained from a third-party vendor.

The site compares the shade of pink to that of the seventh-generation iPod nano and sixth-generation iPod touch, which is a deep pink that is brighter than the Rose Gold iPhone 6s. Mac Otakara was not able to see the shade of pink firsthand, so its exact tone is not clear, but the vendor said it is not the same color as the iPhone 6s.

Early iPhone 6s rumors said pink would be a color choice for the device, but it turned out that "pink" was actually Rose Gold. Today's rumor, if true, makes a clear distinction between Rose Gold and a deeper pink shade, so it seems unlikely the vendor is making the same mistake.

Other potential colors for the iPhone 5se are not mentioned, but Space Gray, Silver, and Bright Pink is an odd lineup, so there's a possibility that Apple will include other color options. The first "iPhone 6c" rumors pointed towards a brighter color lineup for the device, but later rumors have indicated that it will be available in the traditional Silver, Space Gray, and Gold colors.

With the iPhone 5se just over a month away from a potential unveiling at a March 15 event, we may soon see part leaks or more concrete detail that gives us a better picture of the colors we can expect. Other iPhone 5se rumors point towards an iPhone 5s-style design with the curved cover glass of the iPhone 6, an A9 processor, Touch ID, and an 8-megapixel rear camera.

What!?? No salmon color?

But seriously, anything has to be better than the salmon colored iPhone. I think something like the one pictured with the story is cute, if you like pink.

I think the bands are an interesting design detail (that also happens to be functional), creates a neat contrast and design-wise, extends the white front color. :)
Nope to me it feels that they copied the look and fell of Samsung Galaxy S3 plastique

Hopefully it doesn't come in that nonsensical name, the only thing that could possibly justify it would be that the rumors about the only thing it sharing with the 5S being it's screen size are wrong and it's actually just a 5S around cheaper casing.

So of all the colors, they chose bright pink to go along with silver and space gray. Yes, that makes perfect sense.
I doubt it it'll be uglier than this, those white bands, dang, so friggin ugly

Please, put a case on that thing! Was Tim too cheap to color key them to the case? The extra $0.001 per phone really helped their bottom line though!
