French blog MacBoutic has posted the first photos of the smartphone in a gold variant.
The gold nuance seems to match leaked pictures of a gold SIM card tray that surfaced in May.
KGI Securities analyst Ming-chi Kuo believes the handset will be available in a gold version.
Apple is expected to officially unveil the iPhone 5S on September 10, alongside the iPhone 5C.
Anyway, until the official presentation nothing is for sure.
