When Apple introduced the iPhone X, it’s hard to deny many were disappointed the company didn’t offer a gold color option. Instead, they opted for black and white. This may have been due to manufacturing problems, but that didn’t apparently stop the company from making at least a few units of the variant as the iPhone X’s official FCC filing appears to show off the device from multiple angles.
MacRumors was first to spot the previously confidential photographs that appear to show off the iPhone X in an unreleased gold color scheme. The same gold accent found on the iPhone 8 is used on the back of the device, while the stainless steel frame has also received a golden makeover that looks pretty stunning.
Notably, Apple could’ve used the black or white X to file its device at the FCC, but they chose the gold likely because they originally thought they could mass produce the variant. Of course, it’s obvious that this assumption didn’t come to fruition.
That being said, at least we get a glimpse of what could’ve been the iPhone everyone had in their pockets. Space Gray and Silver are boring compared to this model, so I’m sure at least some of you are jealous. If you are, don’t click here.
