Apple, it seems, may be taking a leaf out of Nokia’s book when it comes to colour options for its upcoming iPhone.
Japanese blog Macotakara has reported that Apple will go for multiple colour options for its allegedly upcoming cheaper iPhone and iPhone 5S.
The report cites two sources who give differentcolour options for the cheaper iPhone. While one source says that the device will come in navy, gold orange, white, and gray colours, the other mentions white, pink, green, blue, and yellow orange as likely hues.
Macotakara’s sources also said that cheaper iPhone will be up for field test in June with about 1,000 units. The blog also says that the device will go into full-fledged production from July through September.
It is rumoured that the handset will be priced between $300 and $400 and have casing made of plastic polycarbonate.
Coming to iPhone 5S, the blog says that this device will come in green and gold colour, along with the standard white and black options. Other upcoming features revealed include dual-LED flash and altered shape of the microphone.
Currently, iPod touch is the only Apple handheld device to come in five colours. When Nokia Lumia 920 was launched last year, the Finnish manufacturer had released a video making fun of the bland iPhone 5 that comes in two hues, as compared to five colours of Lumia920.
