The iPhone 5S might come in gold, white, and black, according to several reports this week.

All Things Digital, iMore, and later TechCrunch and 9to5Mac all reported that the gold-toned iPhone might not just be rumors.

A source told All Things Digital that the phone will come in an “elegant” gold tone, noting that one should “think champagne, not ingot.”

The source said that the gold iPhone will feature a white face with a gold-tone back plate.

Rene Ritchie of iMore wrote that for the phone, gold would be one “easiest colors to anodize onto an iPhone.”

The website noted: “There’s an image circulating that’s getting covered as a gold iPhone casing leak. It looks wrong, and according to our own Ally Kazmucha, who again knows her iPhone anodizing inside and out, it doesn’t come across as a legit Apple part. Could be a test of some sort at best, a fake or knock off at worst.”
