Ming-Chi Kuo, a credible analyst formerly with KGI Securities and now at TF International Securities, has issued a new report in which he expects that Apple will roll out a number of new color choices for 2018's iPhone lineup. The entry-level 6.1-inch LCD iPhone will apparently debut in grey, white, blue, red and orange. In fact, Apple called the device "the most colorful iPhone yet" when it was released in 2013. The company had taken a similar strategy with the iPhone 5c a few years ago when it launched the handset in a multitude of colors to attract young consumers.

The iPhones we see later this year may come in a variety of colors in one of the biggest departures from Apple's normal color range we've ever seen.

Upcoming iPhone models expected to be released later this year may have five new color variations including red, orange, blue, white and gray. Apple will reportedly order 83 million units of the 6.1-inch LCD iPhone. These colors are also expected for the 6.5-inch iPhone X "Plus".

"It is very possible that when Kuo says "grey" and "white" he is referring to the Space Grey and Silver finishes as seen on the current iPhone X", 9to5Mac reports.

Apple wasn't immediately available to comment on the report. Those features will, however, be available in the other models. He said that he expects the LCD iPhone to account for 55 percent of Apple's total iPhone sales this generation and for an increasing number of people to find value in the OLED-based versions. They'll likely hit store shelves soon after.
