Update – The iPhone X is now official.

Apple initially started out by offering its iPhone in a black finish, but later threw in white as one of the options. Over the years, we’ve seen Apple start to get more “creative” by introducing more color options, where at the moment there are five different finishes for users to choose from. In fact it has been rumored that there could be a new color option in the form of Blush Gold.

However it seems that as far as the iPhone X is concerned, regardless of color finish it looks like they will all sport black bezels. The iPhone X, for those unfamiliar, will be the 10th anniversary iPhone launched by Apple and will be the third model launched alongside the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus.

One of the rumored features is that it will sport a display with a bezel-less design (or at least as close to a bezel-less design as possible), which means that if the bezel were to sport a similar color to the back finish, it could be rather distracting and ruins the illusion. This is why KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has stated that all iPhone X models will have a black bezel regardless of the color of the phone itself.

This might not necessarily seem like a big deal, but assuming it is true/accurate, it is actually a pretty smart idea since it does help to create a rather cohesive look, but in any case we should find out for ourselves in a couple of days.
