    Not a whole lot is known about the new color option, but Geskin has shared an example of what the device could look like. It’s important to note that the image Geskin uses is actually an iPhone in a mirror case, but the overall idea is the same and can be seen below. It almost sounds as if the iPhone 8 will feature the mirror-like glass design of the old iPod models, seen above, but the mirror deign would likely wrap around the edges to the stainless steel bezels.

    Geskin’s claim comes from an unnamed source and follows a report from the generally reliable Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI. Kuo noted in his report that the iPhone 8 will be available in fewer colors than usual in an effort to maintain a “boutique” branding. KGI has a strong track record, but note that he said “fewer” colors, not necessarily ruling out a new mirror-like option.

    I sure hope the new iPhone wouldn't have horrible lines like that case.

    I do think this year we are going to see multiple colors being introduced, mainly being this is the new era for the iPhone with a revamped model and its the 10th anniversary.

    But if wireless charging comes into play, A glass backing would still likely be relevant, at least for the rumored 5.8 model.

    So Jet Black?

    I think the sources might simply be confirming that the best iPhone color will continue!

    I think Jet Black, a stainless steel color like the one we've been seeing for a while, a shiny gold color, and a shiny rose gold color would be the four options. All of them would have a black front.

    That's my guess.

    Hopefully a gold tone like the Apple Watch Edition has and not some cheesy ****
