Apple iPhone 8 to come in four colors including a reflective mirrored surface?

Apple iPhone 8 to come in four colors including a reflective mirrored surface?
Consider this. Every day takes us one day closer to the unveiling of the Apple iPhone 8. The tenth anniversary model will be the first iPhone to feature an OLED panel, and the latest speculation has Apple launching the phone without Touch ID. Instead, Apple is expected to use a face recognition feature available from the front-facing camera. This is a technology that the top ranked Apple analyst, Ming-Chi Kuo, called revolutionary earlier this year.

Another new rumor has Apple offering the iPhone 8 in four different colors, one of which will be new. The information comes from a tweet disseminated by Benjamin Geskin, who created many of the iPhone 8 renders that we've passed along to you since the beginning of the year. A source told Geskin that the new color is a mirror-like reflective finish. To show an example of what this would look like, Geskin tweeted photos of mirrored iPhone 8 cases.
 
If Geskin's source is right, half of the current six color options for the Apple iPhone 7 and Apple iPhone 7 Plus will be disappearing with the iPhone 8. The six current colors include:

  • Jet Black
  • Black
  • Silver
  • Gold
  • Rose Gold
  • Red

Fingerprint magnet. I would prefer a Brushed Silver look.

Let's see if PA actually uses the term "fingerprint" magnet. Because they always do with someone's other phones, but never the iPhone.

If it's made of glass, I don't understand the 'mirror like finish' analogy. Seems, Analysts getting crazy to me.

People bitched and moaned about the z5 premium and the XZ premium mirror finish. Bet if Apple does this they'll be called innovative and brave and all the usual shíte..

don't let this distract you from the fact that Sony and samsung both have come out with a mirror-like "color" and most iphans called it ugly. I wonder what will make them have a change of heart this time around? maybe because Apple has found the perfect shade of , mirror??

What the back looks like is secondary, but if they're going to have that drop down bezel on top, the from bezels need to be black, or it ruins the look.

Apple keeps the red color for product red. I dont think they will ditch that tradition. Side note I really like the copper finish on the Nokia 6 and HTC u11.

Actually u11 is red. But depends on how light works at the moment it looks copper or orange..
