Purported gold and steel gray iPhone casings get shown off on video

a gold/champagne iPhone 5s is looking like a safe bet for the rumored iPhone event on September 10, and while I haven't heard anything about a steel gray/graphite iPhone 5s coming along for the ride, a small number of parts leaks do seem to indicate there's at least some experimentation going on in the labs.

Casings for both variants, gold and gray, have found their way onto video for your early ogling pleasure. The first video, up top, if from TLD and shows a purported gold iPhone 5s casing compared to the current iPhone 5. The second video, down below, is from Best Tech Info and shows what could likely be some test parts, or possibly a fourth color variant.

Check them out, above and below, and then let me know - if they were on the shelves today, which one would you get?

Purported gold and steel gray iPhone casings get shown off on video


Still have my eye on the black model. But the gray would be my next choice after having my fair share with the white varients for so long.

I don't know about the rest of you. But these sitings, leaks, spy photos and what nots of new iPhones really FUCKING ruins the WOW and SURPRISE.

Like some kid that sneaks and opens gifts before Christmas.

What a screwed up society we are. Like a bunch of spoiled little babies.

But what do I know.

who cares anymore? it's just a color, it has nothing to do with the phone itself. i'm tired of seeing a new article on here everyday about this dumb color stuff. what ever happened to real journalism?

I think anyone can just pay for anostyle.com and get their iPhone 5 color change. I did it in red. So... Idk. I would need to see some more proof.
