Apple will indeed be launching a gold iPhone, according to the latest report by trusted blog AllThingsD.

The report on AllThingsD says the new colour is not a gaudy gold but instead an “elegant” gold tone. “Think champagne, not ingot,” a source said, confirming what seems to be some spot-on speculation from iMore last week. Sources said that the gold iPhone will feature a white face, with a gold-tone back plate and chamfered edging.

Images of a gold phone were also released oniMoreand a picture of the shell of the phone were also spotted at Macboutic, an Apple shop in France.

Image from AppAdvice. has also put out exclusive high-resolution pictures of the upcoming iPhone 5S with the gold-coloured body. The report also points out that 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.

Previously MacRumorshad released pictures of an iPhone with a camera with dual-LED flash. The photograph showed two different coloured LED flashes next to the rear camera.

If Apple does release an iPhone with dual-LED it could lead to better white balance in photos. You could have the option of using the LED that matches the scene.It’s also rumoured that Apple will finally offer a 12-or-13 megapixel camera.
