iPhone 5S to Launch in August in Several Different Colors?

ipod_touch_colorsFollowing a research note from Topeka Capital Markets analyst Brian White stating that the iPhone 5S would launch in two or three different sizes, Japanese website Mac Otakara has released a report suggesting that the iPhone 5S will come in five colors, including the original black and white.

The site also mentions that Appleā€™s rumored cheaper iPhone will also be offered in a range of different colors. There is no indication on what colors the iPhone 5S might sport, but the current 5th generation iPod touch is available in black, white, pink, yellow, and blue, along with a special edition available in red.

Mac Otakara's report adds that the iPhone 5S will be announced in July, with a release to follow in August. That is in line with previous reports released earlier this month, which suggested an August release.

In the past, Mac Otakara reliably predicted the redesigned form factor of the seventh generation iPod nano and the updated 4-inch screen of the fifth generation iPod touch.

It should be noted that AppleInsider claims that the original article has been incorrectly translated and actually mentions one color in addition to black and white, making for a total of three colors rather than five.

I hope the picture above is of a cheap version. Huge step backwards for an already premium looking product in my eyes.

No way - to support so many colors, carriers and memory sizes would make for too many model variations. Not to mention 2 sizes. So that would be something like 120 USA variants (5 colors x 3 storage sizes x 4 USA carriers x 2 sizes). Impossible.

when i said to give us options apple, i didn't say to give us the rainbow.. we won't more options when it comes to the screen size.

a lot of people cover up their phones with cases anyways, so these colours are pointless.

The constant bitching around here whenever Apple doesn't change the phone "enough" would indicate otherwise.

EDIT: Yes, I am now aware that it is a picture of an iPod touch now. See message #51 for my feeble excuse for not knowing such if you want!
