"Blush gold" could be the next rose gold.

The iPhone 8 is rumored to come in an all new blush gold color, and after pictures of an alleged iPhone SIM tray surfaced on the internet, we got a preview of what this color may look like.

But a color makeover may be just one of many changes coming to the iPhone 8 (or whatever Apple ends up calling it). The newest iPhone is rumored to get all sorts of upgrades like a bezel-less OLED display, facial recognition, wireless charging and AR capabilities. Dramatic changes for a phone that's been slowly transforming over the past 10 years.

What to expect from Apple's new iPhone

  What to expect from Apple's new iPhone Tech giant set to unveil its newest smartphones, with experts predicting some major upgradesFor some, the first reaction may be sticker shock. The premium version of the iPhone 8, as consumers and pundits have taken to calling it, may carry a price tag that tops $1,000. That's about 30 percent more than the priciest phone in Apple's current lineup, the $769 iPhone 7 Plus. Yet analysts expect robust demand for the next iPhone, thanks partly to the many consumers who never upgraded to the iPhone 7.

Apple’ s next-generation iPhone could be available in a reddish-orange “copper gold” color which tipped to officially be called “ Blush Gold,” should the new show what looks to be Apple’ s impending iPhone 8 in three color options – white, jet black, and a new color described as a “ Blush Gold.”

iPhone 8 Mysteries: New Reddish-Orange iPhone 8 Color Option Officially Called ‘ Blush Gold’. Apple iPhone 8 release date is expected to happen a week or two after the announcement. The iPhone 8 , iPhone 7 s & iPhone 7 s Plus will expectedly be launched in mid-September.

The blush gold color leak comes from mobile tipster and renderer Benjamin Geskin, who's posted iPhone 8 predictions before. The blush gold appears to have a slight copper tint to it, similar to the Nokia 6. It would be interesting to see what the rest of the phone would look like in that shade. The iPhone is also reported to come in previous colors like silver and black, but Apple has yet to reveal any info on upcoming options.

Apple did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

When Apple releases its newest iPhone in a new color, it's usually a hit. Last year the jet black iPhone 7sold out pretty quickly upon release. And the year before that Apple grabbed people's attention with the rose gold iPhone 6S (coincidentally "rose quartz" was Pantone's color of the year in 2016).

iPhone Upgrade Program customers can now trade in phones through the mail

  iPhone Upgrade Program customers can now trade in phones through the mail Apple seems to be making it easier to trade in iPhones through the iPhone Upgrade Program with a new mail-in kit option, as spotted by John Angarano over at the MacRumors forums. Apple launched the iPhone Upgrade Program two years ago alongside the iPhone 6S as an alternative for customers looking to upgrade their phone without being tied to any one carrier. But if you were looking to upgrade your phone to a new model, you had to schedule an appointment in an Apple Store to trade in the old phone, something that seems to finally be changing with the new mail-in kit.

A report last week from reliable Apple KGI analyst Ming Chi Kuo suggested that the new iPhone 8 will come in three color options . With that being said, I’m not sure about the specific blush gold color that’ s been shown off. And nor do I think it looks particularly blushing .

With the iPhone reveal set for Sept. 12, we only have one week left until the rumored new iPhone 8 is announced. Expect to hear the official details about the phone then and stay tuned to CNET as we cover the event.
