    I vote for :- "Black Front" as it looks more uniform and will hide that notch better. In black, the notch disappears into the display when switched off.
    White front with that top notch looks hideous as it brings extra attention to the notch. it look like someone forgot to put the casing back on and we can see the screw-holes in the chassis.

    What do you think? Should Apple use black fronts for all the colors,

    Black notch/bezel all the way for me. If they only offer the black iPhone with a black front panel then that will be the one I go for without thinking twice. But if they announce a copper gold model like the render in your post it will make for a more difficult decision. That is gorgeous.

    I don't really think there is a point in asking this. There is a 100% chance that Apple only has black bezels on this iPhone. There is no question and you gave the reasoning why.

    While I hope you are right and believe the only right choice is for all models to have a black front, I can still see Apple putting a white panel on the Silver/White model. That being said, if it gets a black front too then there’s no wrong choice and I may be going back to silver. Decisions, decisions...

    The white iPhone will look like the current Edition Watch:

    That would be beautiful. Potentially the best looking of the 3! I’d love to go back to a white device if it modeled itself after that.

    Except it wouldn't come over the front glass like that concept. It would be identical to how Apple has literally already done it in the Apple Watch Edition Series 2...

    What I find really quite funny about everyone considering Apple might use white fronts or that they won't hide the top display notch is the absolute fact that Apple explicitly made all Apple Watches have black fronts only and an OS using mostly black specifically to hide the large bezels with the black levels of the OLED display. It's stated directly in watchOS design suggestions.

    Apple follows Apple. People forget this. So very much of everything they do is so very much intrinsically similar in design philosophy and methodology. This is why people should be looking at the obvious examples for what will be in the iPhone. The Touchbar gave me the idea that the iPhone would use the top left and right portions and bottom left and right portions before any of this leaked. I had this idea the day after Jony Ive talked about the MacBook Pro with Touchbar in an interview. I started to think about where else they would use this, and my thinking led me to a flawed, but somewhat accurate idea which is now known to be true concerning the display, and I've also thought about the highly likely chance that it will be done with the iPad as well.

    Of those concept pieces, I would prefer the white one, by far.

    Agreed. I went MB iP7+ last year but would go back to white/silver in a heartbeat if it takes the design cues of the Ceramic AW.

    I would love for it to be white ceramic. That bronze one is horrid beyond description. Black looks better but too gothic depressing.

    Voted for black as for me it is just aesthetically more pleasing.

    I too would love a ceramic white color, but based on leaks of iPhone 7s units it seems that the color will be a more traditional silver unfortunately. https://9to5mac.com/2017/08/05/iphone-7s-dummy-unit-glass-back/

    Why would you base anything on those? They are Chinese knock-offs. They likely have no idea what the new phone colors will look like.

    I personally wouldn't mind a white front if it did happen, which it likely won't for obvious reasons. But I believe black is the primary choice for most and it makes sense in terms of camouflaging the notch and blending the display as a whole. Either way, The iPhone back color offered to me is more important over the front Color.

    I've always been for black bezel. I think black, especially with OLED, looks the best.

    I won’t be buying one but if I was it would definitely be the white one. I like it.

    The top notch may be black for all body colours and also status bar or some black lines may block that notch’s side parts. These are awkward screen concepts.

    Here are some renders with black front which you would like to see.

    Black. The white edges look awfully thick.

    I'd consider the copper if it has a black front.

    I have a feeling it won't.

    However, there were several rumors previously (4+ months ago) that stated the OLED iPhone would not come in white. Now that we have debunked that and know that there will indeed be a white casing, it's possible that the leak/rumor was misinterpreted as casing color, when it really referred to the front bezel.
