Same color-line? Honestly missed the iPhone 5's black so much, IMHO best looking phone ever. Not so much of a fan of my current gold iPhone 6.

and what color are you getting?

Well since they want to appeal to Chinese people there will probably be:

Gold
Rose Gold
Royal Gold
Lucky Gold
Prosperous Gold
Fortune Gold
777 Gold
888 Gold
7878 Gold

If you don't live in a city with 85% Chinese population (I do) you might not understand why....

PS. I know not every Chinese person will buy a gold phone - but where I live - it is almost exclusively the colour in this city - whether it is iPhone or Samsung.

And maybe Grey for the rest of us.

It would seem like they only add colors on the S models. That gets them the biggest bang for their buck -- there's a reason arose gold was the hot new 6s color, whether customers preferred it to the other three or not. if the 7 is just a 6ss, then we'll probably see a 5th color. If it's a complete redesign, then probably not until the 7s.

Since iPhone 7 would looks like similar with iPhone 6 and 6S, we probably will see 5th colour, some other gold colour

Samsungs' golds are disgusting.

Peace.

I wish they would start matching the MacBook. A black and gold iPhone would be amazing.

I am getting tired of a white front after 4, 4S, 5 & 6 but I don't like space grey

I don't see apple veering away from their current color selection,which is too bad, I'd like to see some bold color choices.

Somewhere on the non-IOS part of the forum someone posted pics of Chinese smart phones that looked a lot like IPhones, but surprisingly better because they offered a true black phone and they had antenna lines colored to blend in with the gold, silver, and black (real black, not gray) aluminum bodies.

I don't know why Apple can't or won't color in those stupid antenna lines. If they did that, they could easily do black bezels with gold or rose gold or silver chassis. I actually prefer the white bezels at the moment, but I wouldn't mind an expanded choice. I am tired of space gray and would love rose gold and black bezels on an SE or a 7.

That's the other thing, rose gold "by Apple standards" is more pink.... I could go bronze or copper also. Samsung's gold is okay but the front face of the Samsung gold phones being more of a platinum color is nice.
