A gold colored mid frame, allegedly for the iPhone 5S, has surfaced online.
French site iPhon.fr has posted photos of the part obtained from Macboutic. Unfortunately, Macboutic has apparently erased the Apple markings to avoid legal troubles; however, the photos provide an idea of what a gold colored frame might look like.
Yesterday, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo issued a new research note claiming that the iPhone 5S will be available in gold and have a 128GB storage option. Kuo has a good track record with Apple predictions.
Notably, the screw holes on the alleged gold frame do match previous frame leaks as can be seen here.
