Apple is apparently planning to launch its flagship iPhone X in a new ‘blush gold’ colour option. According to a tweet made by designer Benjamin Geskin, Apple has already started the production of a ‘blush gold’ colour variant. The device is currently being assembled with the D21A codename. Geskin also tweeted a comparison image which compared the blush gold SIM card tray that to the other gold options the company has released in the past.
This is not the first time we are hearing rumours of a gold iPhone X. Back in September 2017, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo reported that the new “blush’ gold shade might not be available at the time of launch due to production issues. The iPhone X is currently available in white or space grey, while the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus can be purchased in silver, gold and space grey.
It wouldn’t be a surprise to see Apple launching its flagship smartphone in a brand new colour option a few months after the launch. Last year, Apple had launched special versions of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus as part of its (Product) RED programme. The launch of the Blush Gold iPhone X may help the company to increase sales of the device. Apple is expected to launch three iPhones later this year, including a device that may have a bigger display than that of the iPhone X.

There is no word on the release date of a new ‘blush gold’ iPhone X at the moment. Apple has announced a keynote on March 27 in Chicago, though we doubt the launch event has anything to do with the iPhone. If Apple does plan to launch the iPhone X in a new ‘blush gold’ shade on March 27, you don’t have to wait too long to hear the announcement.
