First high-res images of champagne gold Apple iPhone 5S shell surface
It’s a full assembled back, with two strips of white plastic on the top and bottom, with the cutout for the new camera with dual LED flash, an upgrade over all previous iPhones since the iPhone 4 that came with a single LED flash.
Apple has picked a great tonality - it’s not too posh or kitsch, but rather it looks refined and a bit aristocratic. We are still not certain gold would be on everyone’s wishlist, but at least it looks good. What do you think, would you get it?

It looks beautiful I must say but I want Android and a bigger screen on it.

It's absolutely and utterly gaudy and garish and deserves a stint inside a compactor of sorts recycled with other wasteful product.

Although I have no plans on buying using or asking for this phone. I must admit that is one good looking phone. I used to have an old champagne sanyo Katana dlx. I kept around until all the paint chipped off. (Back in my treo 755p days)

And it seems like almost everything about this new iPhone has leaked. So all news is just some color changes. Even if it is based iPhone 5 design language, it does look premium unlike iPhone C which is giving a little glossy plastic feel.
but either way iPhone 5S will be a hit and i personally think it will be better than usual Apple's offerings because of newly slight UI revamped iOS 7 with some pretty cool features like multitasking and a finger print scanner, also improved camera with better law light photography. I am pretty sure the new iPhone deliver its purpose as always by not being awesome in spec and all other department but still deliver great user experience that almost all iPhone and average users would have expected and wanted.

Low light photography*
Law means the rules and rights made by govt. To be precise

I like "law light" better anyways. The next iPhone will bring the LIGHT OF JUSTICE through photography!

On a related note, since August 17 (i.e. the past week) PhoneArena has published eleven stories concerning the color of the next iPhone.

Seriously!? Come on phone arena, I love tech news as much as you do but this isn't news. This is the 500th article on the iPhone 5S that is just pictures of the iPhone 5S. It looks the same as always. Lets talk about the Next Lumia in line, or the Z30 and BB's fate. Lets talk about how Motorola is trying to start slowly with bringing some forces back to the great U.S. of A. Lets not look at the iPhone 5S for another 500 times please.

white w/ gold? Instead make a light brown base and over it - Gold/Champagne aluminium plates...
38. quakan (Posts: 990; Member since: 02 Mar 2011)
That would make for one sophisticated looking iPhone.

I like it! But the white strips basically make it girls only.
20. xperiaDROID (Posts: 3726; Member since: 08 Mar 2013)
WTF? Another iPhone news? PhoneArena, please...no more iPhone news, at least bring something new like the Sony Honami or the HTC One Max or the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 but no more flat pancake iPhone!

There were more leaks of the Z1 (metal frames, this time), but it's not on PA.

Looks like a new color is the only thing new with the 5s line of toys

What is this ridiculous news PA? This is fake hype.. Or biased publicity...
39. kyledharvey (Posts: 2; Member since: 22 Apr 2012)
That's the ugliest damn thing I've ever seen. Ever. WTF happened to Apple's design department? When did asthetics get thrown out the window for Apple, Inc.? First they release iOS 7, which is actually burning out my retinas in the upper left hand corner of my screen as I write this, and then THIS, there are no words for how hard Steve Jobs would've slapped Jonny Ive for this atrocity. (This is why I'm no longer an Apple iOS fan, I'm still putting along with my SGS2, and yeah, it's time for an upgrade... and Apple isn't even close to producing a product that I'd even remotely consider.)

Apple lovers will try to brag about the color.
43. GrmanR (Posts: 40; Member since: 09 Apr 2013)
That actually looks premium. If apple released the 4.7 inch version of the iPhone I'm still waiting for, it would be this color, looks awesome.

To all the whiners: No one is forcing you to look at these articles or buy the device.

Am I the only one who actually likes the color? And I'm and Android User!
