iPhone 8 rumour: the new model will come in a mirror finish
BLACK, white, gold ... and mirror - will these be the colour options available when Apple releases its anticipated iPhone 8 later this year?
Apparently so, according to one internet leaker who cites a source inside the tech giant, in the latest rumour about the new model.
The iPhone 8's arrival will mark 10 years since Apple's eventful foray into the mobile phone market. As such, it'll be packed with new features.
Among the many rumoured inclusions is a sleek all-glass finish, wireless charging and an advanced camera with two lenses and more advanced augmented reality capability.
The latest is about the iPhone 8 coming in for colours, including mirror.
Leaker Benjamin Geskin shared an image of what it would look like. It's actually a current model phone in a mirror case, but gives an indication of the aesthetic.
"It almost sounds as if the iPhone 8 will feature the mirror-like glass design of the old iPod models ... but the mirror deign would likely wrap around the edges to the stainless steel bezels," website 9to5mac reported.
Apple only began widening its colour options in recent years, starting with a white exterior added to the mix.
Recent versions have included gloss black, gold and rose gold, which have proven popular with consumers looking for a point of difference.
There have been countless rumours about the upcoming iPhone 8, which will be released to mark 10 years since Apple's very first mobile phone.
The latest colour claim came as a YouTube user posted a clip purporting to show a fully produced prototype of the iPhone 8.
