iPhone 8 ‘Blush Gold’ tipped as name of leaked copper color

Last week, we got a look at an iPhone 8 dummy unit that featured a coral sort of color — kind of copper, kind of pink, a touch of bronze, but not quite any of those things. Now a new source has surfaced claiming the name of that color will officially be ‘Blush Gold,’ indicating it is a pinkish shade of gold that differs from the existing Rose Gold option Apple offers for the iPhone 7.

Images of the alleged iPhone 8 in Blush Gold surfaced in a YouTube video from Danny Winget, who shows a trio of alleged anniversary edition dummy iPhones in the colors Apple will supposedly release. While two of those colors are simply black and silver, the third caught attention as being an unidentifiable shade of brown/tan/pink/copper/bronze. Judging by the color in the video, it is probably safe to describe it as a coral shade, or perhaps as some variety of ‘salmon.’

Regardless of its exact shade, a source said to be a Foxconn insider claims it is called ‘Blush Gold.’ That information comes from Benjamin Geskin, who tweeted out a render of the iPhone 8 (which features a notch in the display, one of the speculated designs that may be used on the OLED iPhone) and said, “Foxconn’s internal name of the new iPhone 8 color is ‘Blush Gold.’ Barcode says ‘Blush Gold 64GB/128GB.'”

Some rumors indicate that Apple will be introducing five color options for the iPhone 8 rather than three, but that is yet to be seen. Questions also remain about whether this coral color (“Blush Gold”) will be available on all of the iPhone models Apple will unveil next month or only the special iPhone 8 model. The dummy models also show a vertical two-camera arrangement.

Though we still don’t know what features Apple will pack into this phone, the Internet is abuzz with leaks and rumors that point toward, among other things, the inclusion of wireless charging, an edge-to-edge OLED display, a 3D sensor for augmented reality purposes (remember all those Apple AR patents?), and more.
