iPhone 7 might ditch Space Gray color for Deep Blue
An Extremely questionable rumor from East Asia on Thursday claims Apple will replace the venerable Space Gray colorway with a new “Deep Blue” shade when it launches the next-generation iPhone this fall.
One of the more strange choices that Apple has been giving for a short while with iPhones has been with the color choices (not to mention why a 16GB storage model still exists in this day and age). For whatever reason, Apple has offered 2 options — Silver and Space Gray — that aren’t really competently different. They are each simply reminder grey, however, that oddity is also dynamic.
A reliable source in the Chinese supply chain says that it’s “highly likely” that Apple is going to be killing off the Space Gray color option for the next iPhone. In its place, rumor has it that Apple will introduce a Deep Blue color option instead. The Gold, Rose Gold and Silver options will stay.
As noted, Deep Blue will seem to be an honest possibility though a pure black option would also be pretty sweet, having used the black metal Nexus 6P for a while. Although, it doesn’t seem that Apple thinks that way given that the last really black iPhone option was with the iPhone 4S, and there’s never really been a matte black iPhone from Apple.
What does one all think? Is Deep Blue an honest color? What alternative choices would you prefer to see?
