In addition to the traditional black and white models, the forthcoming iPhone 5S could also be available in a flashier version, all in gold, according to the American tech specialist websites iMore and TechCrunch. Apple's new smartphone will be presented on September 10, most likely alongside a more affordable version of the device, dubbed the iPhone 5C.



According to these rumors, Apple may introduce a new 'champagne' color to the iPhone range. The shimmery gold shade is even said to be quite easily obtained by anodizing the smartphone's aluminum casing.

Well-heeled Apple fans can already purchase iPhones made of solid gold, or even encrusted with diamonds, through brands such as Amosu or Goldgenie, for several thousand euros, but the 'champagne' iPhone would present a more affordable alternative for fans of metallic colors. Readers of TechCrunch commented that an iPhone with a gold case would likely sell particularly well in the Chinese and Indian markets, where the color is popular.

Among other prevalent rumors swirling ahead of the launch is that of a fingerprint reader on the iPhone 5S, which could be used for enhanced security features. There are also whispers of a more powerful processor, an increase in camera resolution to 13 MP, a double flash, and a new home button.

Of course, the iPhone 5S will run on iOS 7, the latest version of Apple's mobile operating system, which was upgraded with an entirely new interface last June.
