Grey Apple iPhone 5S to join the upcoming champagne gold variant

With the next generation iPhone right around the corner, rumors are rife as to what new colors will be available. We've already seen case leaks for the champagne gold colored variant but Sonny Dickson today reported that the handset will also be available in a gunmetal grey color. The variant will join the existing silver/white and black versions. Apple is expected to show off its new iPhone alongside the more affordable iPhone 5c at an event on September 10th. While the iPhone 5c will ship in a range of vibrant colors, Apple seems to have kept the premium combinations and materials for its flagship. Under the hood, the phone is expected to get a newer A7 processor chip. Another rumor suggests that the handset might come with a fingerprint reader embedded below the home button which seems a bit far fetched. That said, if implemented, it could make entering passwords or credit card information redundant. With just two weeks to go, we can't wait to see what Apple brings to the table. We would however advice keeping expectations in check considering historical precedent suggests that the 'S' cycle of iPhone updates are generally incremental.
