Same design as 6s = chance of new color?

Since the iPhone 7 (or whatever they decide to call it) is going to look basically the same as the 6s, do you think that there are greater odds for a new color? Seems to be one of the best ways to distinguish the "old" iPhone over the "new" one.

I know we just got rose gold, but I'm personally hoping for a blue color (I'll take any shade of blue). That would help alleviate the disappointment over the three-in-a-row design, just like the bigger screen did for the 1GB of RAM.

Never know with Apple. Whatever they do it should be another nice iPhone. I think they should give a minimum 32 GB's storage.

An all black or a new blue colour added would be great. However I think they may wait for the iPhone 7s like they did with the 5s to add gold and the 6s to add rose gold. Altho if they are planning on skipping the s upgrades and going straight to the iPhone 8 next year like rumours suggest, then they may add a new colour or 2 this year.

All I'm asking for is an all black iPhone
If this is any indication, an all black iPhone might be coming:

Sweet. I hope it comes out in black.

That's the casing before the colours are added. I'm not saying Apple won't add an all black iPhone but this isn't really an indication.

You can already see the antenna lines there and I wouldn't expect them to add a colour while the plastic/rubber antenna bands are present. Colouring would be done before the antenna bands were added I assume, as it's a different material.
