Adding to the strings of reports written about Apple's upcoming flagship device dubbed as the iPhone 7, ranging from its release date to specifications to design, comes the news claiming that it will come in a new colour. The Cupertino giant is reportedly replacing Space Gray colour with Deep Blue.

Apple is expected to launch the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus in the third quarter of this year. The iPhone 6s was released in September last year, so the upcoming next-generations handsets are also expected to come at around the same time.

Japanese website Mac Otakara (via AppleInsider) has reported citing sources from China that Apple's iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will be seen in dark blue, silver, gold and rose gold colours, which means the space gray colour that was introduced with the iPhone 5s in 2013 will be ditched. 

It is reported that the iPhone 7 will resemble its predecessor, the iPhone 6s. Pocket-lint has claimed that pictures of case designs and a glass screen protector made by Cygnett for the iPhone 7 may fit perfectly into the iPhone 6s, which means the devices could be almost identical in terms of size. Sketches of the purported iPhone 7 published by the French website, NoWhereElse (via 9to5mac), show the same height and width as of the current flagship device.

According to reports that have surfaced so far, the iPhone 7 will sport a 4.7-inch screen and the iPhone 7 Plus will have a 5.5-inch screen with dual camera. The handsets are expected to share features like an A10 chip, an iOS 10 operating system, a 3GB RAM, and camera with OIS (optical image stabilisation).
