Beautiful RED iPhone X mockups show what could have been

“Apple missed a golden opportunity to bust out a RED iPhone X to go with the (PRODUCT) RED iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus based on the latest mockups from our favorite Apple concept artist,” Buster Hein writes for Cult of Mac.

“Martin Hajek came out with some renderings of what the iPhone X would look like with a red coat of paint and it’s absolutely stunning,” Hein writes.

“This isn’t the first time we’ve seen a red iPhone X mockup, but I really dig the red hue on Martin’s mockup,” Hein writes. “He also created some concepts of what the iPhone X would look like in gold.”

MacDailyNews Take: As we wrote on Monday:

No iPhone X version? Disappointing. Apple’d sell more and support (RED) better with the top of the line iPhone included. It’s good to see the new (PRODUCT)RED iPhone X Leather Folio available, at least.

Certainly, the black front on the iPhone 8 models is a welcome improvement over white!

  1. Obviously, Apple is doomed. Two horrible mistakes:

    1. As the comments to another article point out, the company wasted money producing a Product (RED) iPhone 8.

    2. As the MDN take points out, the company didn’t spend money producing a Product (RED) iPhone X.

    Maybe, just maybe, it was more difficult to come up with an affordable red finish that would adhere dependably to a stainless steel case than to anodized aluminum.

    1. It’s only a stainless band on the iPhone X and they managed to do a space gray band using physical vapor deposition, so it’s obviously doable, but Tim Cook’s ball-less Apple is lazy.
