Spigen teaser confirms new Rose Gold color option for the Apple iPhone 6s and Apple iPhone 6s Plus

Case manufacturer Spigen confirmed that the Apple iPhone 6s and Apple iPhone 6s Plus will both be offered in Rose Gold. The company released a teaser showing a new Rose Gold colored case for both new iPhone models. The copy on the teaser reads, "A New Color Has Bloomed (itallics added) for iPhone 6s/6s Plus." The color was originally used on some of the high-end Apple Watch Edition timepieces. Unlike the watch, the new Rose Gold iPhone units won't contain real gold in order to keep the price down. Rose Gold Apple Watch Edition models range in price from $10,000 to as high as $17,000.

Meanwhile, on Amazon, Spigen has already posted a long list of cases for both the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. We don't see any listings for the Apple iPhone 6c. The rumored plastic-clad model with a 4-inch screen, is not expected to be announced during Apple's media event to be held September 9th in San Francisco. 

Besides the new color, the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus are both expected to employ Series 7000 aluminum to prevent bending. This material, used to produce the Apple Watch, is employed by the aerospace industry. The phones will both be powered by the new Apple A9 chipset, while Apple has doubled the amount of RAM in each phone to 2GB. The rear facing camera will be bumped to 12MP from 8MP, and we could see a larger battery inside. And don't forget the inclusion of Force Touch. Apple is expected to give the feature a new name in line with its function as a tool to navigate iOS 9 using short cuts.

With the new iPhone units set to be unveiled a week from this Wednesday, you can expect plenty of leaks and rumors as we get closer to the event.

Thanks for the tip!

This is revolutionary.

You know the only idiots that keep posting "revolutionary" and "innovation" for the past two years are Apple haters like antutu, taters, techie, and the rest of the 12 year old gang. I have not seen anyone seriously refer to Apple feature or anyone manufacturer as of last couple of years as revolutionary. It's old, it's not funny, and it makes you look stupid because other than an old meme puns you're incapable of making an intelligent insult.

Look who is talking. The biggest troll on the Internet. If you don't like what you read then go back to your cave, close your eyes and shut the f**ck up. I am not an idiot cause I don't own any iDevice. Now go tell your mama that AnTuTu owned your candy a$$. Bloody moron..

AnTuTu accusing others of trolling, now that's funny. Not surprising, though, idiot has to comment every Apple related article and beg others for +1's. Hah, and owning iDevice = being idiot. I don't know if you're serious but this cancer gave me this comment

I wouldn't say that owning an Apple product makes you an idiot. If you like it, you like it. Personally I would say they have poor taste and most likely aren't aware there are better alternatives with more capabilities and better security(a lot of the time significantly cheaper as well). And most aren't aware how screwed they are getting by apple because apple uses low-end to mid range hardware and charges them a premium flagship level price for it. For apple products such as laptops and desktops, apple charges a premium for that as well. You can build a PC running Windows with the same or better hardware for cheaper, even with the cost of the Windows License(of course you could also run linux if you chose to do so). Not to mention, to do many things on OS-X, you must run windows anyways to do it(which requires purchasing windows, thus increasing cost further). For years apple has touted OS-X as more secure than Windows(when it isn't), with OS-X having more than double the security issues than Windows 7, 8 and 8.1 combined. And apple often takes a long time to patch security issues when they are found and sometimes does not patch it properly so the issue still remains. OS-X yosemite is very inefficient with system resources, and this has resulted in Windows 10 running better(smoother and faster) on macbooks than OS-X. Apple really is rather a joke when it comes to software. IOS is also very insecure(the most insecure mobile OS).http://www.gfi.com/blog/most-vulnerable-operating-systems-and-applications-in-2014/

It does make them idiots actually IMO. Anyone that willingly pays a $1000 for a 750p display, ugly antenna lines, cheap metal, 1810 mah battery, 1 GB of ram, 8 year old simple software are pretty stupid or at the very least misinformed consumers. It's like buying a McDonald's hamburger for $100. Yes it's good and besides some food processing and a lot of calories it's great. But you should still be able to get it for $1 so you should never ever buy it at $100 if you value money at all. Apple has $200 billion in liquid cash for doing this and people defend it. I guaranteed these same people would rip into McDonald's for selling $100 burgers even if a herd of morons bought it by the billions and said the reason was because its a good burger that just works. Anyone that agrees with Apples philosophy is pretty bad, worst yet us they defend it.

I don't agree with Apple's philosophy, and I doubt a lot of their customers do, but rather they probably don't care or they are ignorant. Ignorance isn't the same as being an idiot. But again. people value things differently. For example, I was willing to pay 1.5k for my Surface Pro 3 i7 256gb, however one of my friends thinks I was ripped off. He wouldn't pay that much for it, but I would and did because I wanted it and think it wasn't too steep for what the product is and how much use I could get out of it and it's versatility.

Surface pro is different. That's how much i7 ultrabooks cost. $1000 is not how much an IOS device with those specs should cost period. I wouldn't pay 1.5k for a Surface Pro either but that's perfectly in line with everyone's asking price. The issue with iphone devices is that its WAY more than everyones asking price for way less internally and they act like they are offering more than everyone else. Apple is like selling an i3 with 8gb of storage for the same price that someone would offer an i11(if that existed) and 9999gb of storage(if that existed) and they somehow get away with it. There is a difference between your example of other people's value and what Apple is doing. Completely different.

Well yes, but everyone values something different and companies will take advantage of that whenever possible(apple is just the worst offender and no one is even close to how bad they are).

Here's a vid of an i3 with 8GB of storage vs an i11 with 9999GB. http://www.cultofandroid.com/75730/iphone-6-smokes-samsung-note-5-in-speed-test/

It only loses in multitasking but it doesn't change the fact that I am right. An i3 with 8gb and iOS would beat an i11 with Windows 10 but it doesn't mean they should be the same price. One runs garbage joke software and one is a real operating system. Funny how you ignore the rest if the videos where the Note 5 with a heavy QHD screen smokes an iPhone 6 with light and crappy 750p display.

He's right though, those jokes have gotten old, and tired. Since when is a color supposed to be "revolutionary" or "innovative"? Just saying, not arguing.

True. But do you remember the comments when Samsung added a gold option? How they were copying Apple? Now Apple adds a color option Samsung had first, and it's fine. Not that I think either argument isn't asinine. It's just the hypocrisy...

55. gaming64 unregistered

Both sides have shown hypocrisy, both on its own extreme terms. Problem is there is always denial, some even going to the extent of trolling. I will admit, I am a hypocrite much.

I'm speaking purely on the sayings themselves. Every time Apple does anything (even something as small as a color option), here come the "innovative" and "revolutionary" jokes. It's just a color dude, that's it. The reality is, there's more copying on the way from both sides. I personally like how they copy each other, that means I'll get the best of both worlds. I spend top coin for these devices, copy more to make me happy.

And I agree with all of that. I was just pointing out the double standard.

God, it's kind of a horrid colour yeh?

10. gaming64 unregistered

Dont worry, die-hard iFans will still buy it though.

24. AlikMalix unregistered

Yep thinking of getting the rose gold version 6s for my wife.

28. gaming64 unregistered

Well good for you and your wife. Hope she enjoys the purchase. How do you find the 6s so far, Alik based on what we know?

32. AlikMalix unregistered

I will upgrade... Primarily for Apple pay. My 5s is still smooth and size I prefer. All games new games still work smoothly. And the phone is in great shape after a few drops even (I don't use cases). Camera is good, Touch ID is flawless, can't really complain. But like I said - I want Apple pay. All the food places, most merchants, and gas stations around me support Apple pay - so it time. My wife still rocking the iPhone 5 that my little one placed in glass of milk 2 years ago - she has a transparent line on her screen and also up for upgrade. Unlike Jedi, I don't care for split screen - so if they don't include it - not a deal breaker. Looking forward to ios9. Curious if it is lighter than ios8, but really curious how gaming will change with force touch. I do like 5s design way more than 6/6s. (And the size too) I already decided I'll be using that clear thin case to compensate for protruding camera (ugh). Just love my phone to lay solid flat. Anyway upgrades in performance is always welcome - I like my games and I could only emagine how devs will take advantage of the new graphics processor and double the ram - it's already pretty damn impressive with half that. But, here a big but! I know availability will be an issue - so I decided to do what I did last time I upgraded -try an android again - hopefully this "m" will be installed by then - because last time I tried - not having app permissions option made the phone a hassle to deal with - force closing apps every time just to save battery was a last straw for me. And lollipop does look much better in terms of UI (after iOS 7 everything else looked like the 90's). I'm excited to try real multitasking on android (sarcasm). 30 days should be long enough to find a 64gb space grey 6s, hopefully.

53. gaming64 unregistered

Really. I still rock the iPhone 5. It's still a really good phone. I really don't plan on upgrading just yet cause I'm only in for iOS, not iPhone and I am really excited for iOS 9. It's gonna be a great update. Also, I agree with most of what you said. P.S.- I would rather say 70's hippie blotch color though.

How do you know it won't be as bad and buggy as IOS 8?

106. AlikMalix unregistered

My iPhone 5s was never "bad" or "buggy"... with any iOS7 and iOS8 updates... I'll admit there were a few text buttons that overlapped eachother in early iOS8, and on the iPad3 changing wallpaper took a while and didnt indicate loading - but that has changed within about 3 weeks... As far as usability and lagginess - nothing... Actually runs games better than Note4 - it loads a game longer, but no jitter while playing games like RR3 and MC5. I'd compare more games, but the good stuff I have on my iPhone isn't available on Google Play..
