Images of iPhone 5S leak in... gold?
Before we begin entertaining the possibility of this not being a fake, we're going to admit that, well, it probably is. In fact, the only other piece that supports the notion of an upcoming iPhone 5S in gold is a piece we published a month and a half or so ago. That, and perhaps the expectation that the 5S won't differ from the 5 physically, makes the below a smidge more plausible.

Either way, it is Monday and most of us need to jump-start our week – drooling over a good looking, albeit unlikely, iPhone 5S to start off your day surely counts for something!

Salty disclaimers aside, two leaked photos of a golden iPhone 5S sitting next to (and on top of) a white iPhone 5 have surfaced on the net. Origins? Unknown, but the source is from China. As you can see, the two phones look and seem to measure exactly the same, squishing what hope there is for a 5S with a larger screen.

Enjoy!

Gold? The "gold" iPhone looks like it is painted with gold color and they called it GOLD.

Seriously, what is the point in these articles? Is it slow news day? If i go and paint my 5 pink and take a photo claiming it to be the 5S will it get published here?

PA runs way too many useless articles. I click on some thinking they're going to be good and end up being a waste of time. And to answer tour question, yes because tech blogs will publish pretty much anything Apple or their phones.

One word: Clicks. Clicks bring in revenue. Don't like it? Don't click it and the articles won't be published anymore.

How do we even know this is the 5S? The only real distinction between the 5 and 5S leaks we've been having is that the opening for the LED flash is bigger on the 5S, but the cover that goes on the upper side of the back isn't even there, so this could just be a gold painted shell for the iPhone 5.

If its 4'' I'll pass. If it's 4.3'' (or more) I'll be purchasing it.

I went from the iPhone 4S to the Nexus 4. Screen size really makes a huge difference.
