Spoiler alert: KGI Securities’ Ming-chi Kuo, who has been predicting Apple hardware details with a high degree of accuracy for years, issued a new research note over the weekend with some information about the new iPhone days before Apple is set to reveal it.
None of the supposed iPhone 7 announcements, specs, or features would be particularly shocking in and of themselves, but together they give a solid overview of what Apple is likely to have in store. Kuo’s detailed note, cited by AppleInsider, MacRumors, and 9to5Mac, certainly sees the analyst putting his cards on the table.
Here’s what he expects to see at Wednesday’s event:
- Five color options. The current rose gold, gold, and silver models will remain, but space gray will be replaced by a “dark black” option and a separate “piano black” model with a glossy finish. Kuo says that supply may be limited on the piano black iPhone, with Apple possibly restricting it to higher storage tiers at first.
