New photos shared on Twitter by @DongleBookPro this weekend show iPhone 5s in an unreleased variant of black and slate. This design was probably used in an attempt to hide the iPhone 5s while it was being tested, so that it looked more like the iPhone 5.
For the unknown, the iPhone 5 was available in two colors: ‘White and silver’ and ‘Black and slate’. With next year’s introduction of the iPhone 5s, Apple introduced three new color variants: silver, gold and space color.
While these images may suggest that Apple is considering making the iPhone 5s available in black and slate, DongleBookPro says that the design of this prototype was probably designed to help mask the iPhone 5s while it was still being prototyped and developed.
This device has a slate gray house in iPhone 5 style (probably trying to hide the device) with many differences from the production (matte top and bottom)
The prototype iPhone 5s seen here was produced in December 201
The Black and Slate color on the iPhone 5 was incredibly popular, and many have encouraged Apple to bring back something similar since 2012. Space Gray has replaced Black and Slate in Apple’s range of colors since then as an evolving danger option for most Apple. devices.
