• Apple iPhone X 'Gold' color model is expected to launch in the second quarter of 2018
  • Except for the color, the design and the internal hardware of the new iPhone X will be similar to the original model

Apple had launched the new iPhone 8 and the iPhone 8 Plus (Product) Red series earlier in the week, but sadly there was no announcement on the crimson-hued iPhone X [review]. Now, a report from the US suggests that the company is preparing to launch a special edition iPhone flagship soon.

MacRumors have got hold of Apple's application to Federal Communication Commission (FCC), which has the exclusive images of the unreleased iPhone X 'Gold' version.

In the photo, the new iPhone X looks stunning in the yellow metallic (coated on stainless steel) shade on the back and around the rim. The glass cover on the top of the shell looks glossy and on the front, it features black accented notch on the top.

With the gold-colored body, the new iPhone X variant looks more premium than the original black and white models.

When will the iPhone X 'Blush Gold' launch?

Usually, when a phone gets certified by telecom regulatory bodies like FCC in the US or any other country's agencies, it gets officially unveiled within a month or two. So, we expect the new gold-hued iPhone X to debut within this quarter (before the June-end).

It will come with a 5.8-inch super Retina HD OLED bezel-less edge-to-edge curved screen, a first for iPhone series and boasts of True Tone Display technology (similar to the iPad Pro) having 458 ppi (pixels per inch).
