According to information by Japanese blog Macotakara, Apple is envisioning a new shade of gray for the upcoming iPhone 7, one that has more in common with the deprecated Black/Slate paintjob last seen on the iPhone 5, rather than the lighter Space Gray finish that’s been en vogue over the past three iPhone generations.

Space Gray first appeared on the iPhone 5s back in 2013, and over the years, we’ve seen Apple take the color in different places – for example, the Space Gray Apple Watch Sport is darker than the iPhone 6s of the same finish. The wearable is also sold in a Space Black variant.

Apparently, sources who had access to the upcoming iPhone’s coloring mistakenly reported the very same “darker” space gray we’re talking about for a blue shade. While that sounds a bit ridiculous, print images can distort one’s perception of color, depending on the lighting and other conditions.
