Word has it Apple is planning to introduce more colour to 2018 iPhone line-up.

Citing analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, 9to5Mac reports that a new, 6.5-inch premium OLED iPhone comes in black, white, and a new golden tone, while a more affordable 6.1-inch LCD model will be available in many colors: gray, white, blue, red and orange.

That might bring back memories of 2013, when Apple released the low-cost iPhone 5c (see picture) in a variety of colors (green, yellow, blue, white and pink – in addition to the high-end iPhone 5s, which came only in silver, gold and grey.

“It is quite possible that in the Kuo says ‘grey’ and ‘white’ he is a reference to the Space, Grey and Silver finish as seen on the current iPhone X,” 9to5Mac reports. It is unclear if the red model will be a different Product(RED) partnership to raise awareness and capital for those affected by HIV/AIDS in Africa.

Kuo expects that the LCD model is the most popular of the three.
