More evidence of graphite and champagne colored iPhone 5S handsets has surfaced online, just over four hours before Apple chief executive officer Tim Cook et al. are set to hit the stage in Cupertino, Calif., and announce the next-generation handset directly. This time, an image of the anticipated graphite and champagne colored iPhone 5S handsets (pictured above) appeared at LetemsvetemApplem, reportedly originating from a parts supplier. The two anticipated iterations of Apple's iPhone 5S, combined with its black and white models, and five different colored iPhone 5C handsets - that's white, red, blue, green, and yellow, if the rumors are true - indicate that later this month, Apple's iPhone will be available in eight different colors (black, white, graphite, champagne, red, blue, green, and yellow). It's interesting, too, that the more sophisticated colors of graphite and champagne appear to have been reserved for the high-end iPhone 5S, while the fun, carefree white, red, blue, green, and yellow are expected to adorn the low-cost iPhone 5C. Apple's special event indeed looks set to brighten everyone's day, in a number of ways. Check back with us from 9 a.m. PDT for our coverage of Apple's media event, which is set to begin at 10 a.m. PDT and should last for an hour or so.
