iPhone 7 will come in these two new colours, apparently

Apple are to release the iPhone 7 in two different shades of black, a tweet-leak has seemingly revealed.

The tweet, posted by prominent leaker @the_malignant, appears to show the two different shades of black that the new iPhone will be available in. Apparently we’ll see ‘Dark Black’ in a matte finish, and ‘Piano Black’ in a glossy finish. The twitterer is confident that these colours are correct, having had them ‘confirmed’ – take it with a pinch of salt, in any case.

The cryptic image shows a symbol alongside the storage size of the model. Supposedly, this symbol dictates whether the phone is dark black or piano black.  This has prompted us to wonder if the glossy piano finish will only come with the larger 256GB model, or perhaps whether the swanky colour will be limited to the plus model?

The pictures show model numbers D10, D11 and D12. Apparently D10 relates to the iPhone 7, whereas D11 and D12 are for the iPhone 7 Plus and the iPhone 7 Pro respectively.

Of course, this is just conjecture currently, and we can’t verify whether there is any truth in the two shades of black saga. However, all will be revealed on Wednesday 7th September when Apple are set to announce the iPhone 7.
