This is how the new red iPhone 7 would look with a black front, and we wish it were real


Apple on Tuesday announced two special-edition iPhones — the PRODUCT(RED) iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus — which not only look good, but part of the proceeds from each device sale go to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS.

So, we get good-looking devices that are being sold for charitable cause. What more could we possibly want? Well, the (RED) backplates are cool and all, but what about the fronts of the special-edition iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus? They only come in white!

From the moment we saw the two phones, we couldn't help but wonder, “what would a (RED)/black color variant look like?” Red and white go well together, but the same could be said for red and black as well.

So, going from there, we decided to actually test how this color combination would look like on the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, and we are pleased to report that it does look pretty snazzy! Check it out:



So, what do you think? Do you like this red/black version of the special-edition PRODUCT(RED) iPhones? If you do, we've got a bunch more cool pictures in store for you!

Unfortunately, as has been the case with past (RED) Apple products, such as the iPod and Mac Pro special editions, the chances of seeing this red/black iPhone 7 are pretty slim. Still, this doesn't make it any less good! And one can hope, right?

Also the gold model would look gorgeous if it had a black front.

If leaks are legit, Samsung will nail this color combination with the S8!

I always like the colors of the A series 2016, and I am glad they're bringing this all black front design to their flagships. Makes the front way too less distracting than it is with the silver and gold variants on their recent flagships.

I really hope that iPhone 8/7S will have red option while announcing at the same time...

It's amazing how current marketing acts and how people are becoming more and more naive. A color changes everything. A color that has already been released by other manufacturers. Suddenly it's as if you invented the wheel

You mean like this one? : http://www.htc.com/us/go/buy-htc-10/#!carrier=unlocked&color=red But it's cool nonetheless.

Nothing beats the red HTC M7. The red speaker grills looked gorgeous on that phone.

Yeah back at the time my friend got the red M7 and I got the stealth black. Other than the s**tty camera it was one of the best phones I have ever owned. I really miss it.

To me, the M8 is one of the best designed phones ever, and if HTC upgraded only the camera on that thing, I wouldn't hesitate in buying one.

I swear that this was my favorite design when it was leaked I was so optimistic that this is the M9 and made my mind that this will be my next phone no matter what specs it will come equipped with.

Agreed. My second best design imo is the Xperia XZ Premium. Can't wait to land in my country and try it for myself.

Yep that would look dope. But the Product Red requires the red/white color combo or all red.

Every OEM should make one color that matches the carrier its sold on. A Verizon Red phone or a Magenta phone or a nice deep blue for ATT and a nice racing or Wolverine Yellow for Sprint would be so awesome. I saw the red iPhone at VZW this morning and it really looks cool in person. I was so tempted, but I want to see what the iPhone 8 brings. The iPhone 7 in red isn't unique enough vs the 6 and 6S. But a Product Red iPhone 8 would just me fall totally in love. Especially in a matte red finish on anodize aluminum on the sides and a nice matte shimmering under the glass.

I would love to see a product red iPad, with a red shiny ring around the home button and camera.

White does not go well with any color combo unless it's silver or black. Imo.

I ordered me an iPhone 7 Plus in the red. dbrand skins will make it black in front for me. The white is ok, but I prefer it with the gold. Gotta get a case and screen cover now!

Apple just needs to get rid of the white front all together unless the device itself is white all over. Either black or match the color of the phone.
