Rumor: iPhone 6S Will Come in an Extra Color

How would you like a rose gold iPhone?

According to a KGI Securities research note obtained by AppleInsider, the next iPhone, widely believed to be known as the iPhone 6S, will come in a rose gold color option. The new color option would bring Apple’s total number up to four, joining the existing gold, space grey, and silver.

The report also claims the back camera’s resolution will be boosted from 8 megapixels to 12 megapixels. This makes sense as the iPhone has been stuck with 8 megapixels since the release of the iPhone 4S in 2011, even though competitors have introduced 12, 16 and even 20 megapixel smartphone cameras.

In addition, the iPhone 6S will purportedly have a faster A9 processor, 2GB of RAM (an upgrade from the 1GB in iPhone 6 and 6 Plus) and a display with pressure-sensitive Force Touch technology first introduced on the Apple Watch.

Judging from previous releases, we should see the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus pop up around September or October 2015.
