Apple Inc. in the third quarter of 2016 launched one of their most anticipated iPhone flagships, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. The two smartphones came in Gold, Rose Gold, Silver, Black, and Jet Black color options. New reports online claim that the successors will bring in another new color option to the list – which is ‘Red‘.

Macotakara reports that the successors next year will add a Red color variant into the already existing color options. The report further claims that the successors will still be called the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus – refuting previous rumors of iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus naming, said to mark the 10-year anniversary.

It further notes that the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus will not include wireless charging or the shift to glass casing, but will instead see an upgrade in hardware i.e. a new ‘more powerful’ A11 chipset. This new chip will be introduced alongside the new Red colour option.
