We’re mere hours away from Apple’s announcement of the 2018 iPhone handsets and, of course, the last-minute leaks and rumors are still rushing in – including another one from concept designer Ben Geskin.
After revealing what the prototypes of the cheaper iPhone XC may look like a couple of days ago on Twitter (although that ‘XC’ name is of course unconfirmed – and other rumors suggest it could actually be called the ‘iPhone XR’), Geskin’s now shared images of the SIM trays for the handset, which also seemingly confirm a palette of five colors.

The speech comes a...
