Exclusive: High Resolution Photos Of The Rumored Gold iPhone 5S Back Housing
With Apple’s iPhone event coming up in September, it’s no surprise that many rumors have surfaced regarding next generation iDevices. Recently, AllThingsD unofficially confirmed Apple's plans to release a gold/champagne colored iPhone 5S. Thanks to our sources, we’ve managed to get a hold of some high resolution photos of this rumored device. It's interesting that most all of the internals of this rumored iPhone housing are gold as well. This kind of attention to detail leads us to believe that these photos could be the real deal.

There’s no way to tell if this back housing is real, but it seems to line up nicely with previous rumors and leaked photos. The top glass inlay appears to be large enough to accommodate the rumored dual-LED flash and the inside of the housing has a different set of mounts when compared to the iPhone 5. This leads us to believe that these photos could be genuine, but there’s no way to know for sure until Apple officially unveils its next generation iPhone in September. [caption id="attachment_453777" align="aligncenter" width="225"] A shot from the other side.[/caption] Another thing to point out is that the back housing is missing the text that's normally present on the bottom half below the “iPhone” marking. Though it's possible that this etching happens at a different point in the manufacturing process. Also, it appears that the "iPhone" marking is a bit thinner than usual. That could be due to Apple's decision to use a thinner font in iOS 7 and they wanted to reflect that change on the hardware as well. We're still working with our source to get more leaked photos and possibly video of this rumored device. Be sure to follow us on Twitter to keep up with this story and any future leaks. Like any other rumor, take this with a grain of salt, but we feel pretty confident that we’ll see something very similar to this in the coming weeks.
