    After several developing stories over the weekend teased the announcement of a gold-colored iPhone 5s, it has been confirmed that the color scheme will be unveiled in a special launch event next month.

    Wall Street Journal's AllThingsD blog got the scoop on the confirmation after sources told them that during Apple's launch event on September 10, the gold or champagne-colored iPhone will make its debut.

    From AllThingsD:

    Sources in position to know tell AllThingsD that Apple, after years of offering the iPhone in either black and white, will soon offer it in a gold tone as well. iMore was first to break the news last Friday, its story corroborated in short order by TechCrunch on Sunday and as well as 9to5Mac.

    The new color option was described to AllThingsD as an “elegant” gold tone. “Think champagne, not ingot,” a source said, confirming what not seems to be some spot-on speculation from iMore last week.

    Apple has been gearing up for the release of its latest generation of iPhones, with the long-rumored budget class 5C and the flagship 5S update. However, news of the color started brewing and caused a frenzy across blog sites and social media. CNet speculates that the phones will be in short supply, and will be a target of thieves looking to nab the exclusive color.

    The publication also noted that this isn't the first time Apple has applied gold to its products, but stated this is a bold step for the traditionally plain black and white colors of the iPhone.

    Check out some touched up unofficial photos of the gold iPhone 5s and related shots.

    Today (September 10), leading technology giant Apple unveiled its latest versions of the popular iPhone from their base of operations in Cupertino, Calif. The beefed-up 5S and budget class 5C are the new darlings of the smartphone block.

    As teased for the past few weeks, the 5S will come in a brand new color. The champagne and gold-toned iPhone 5S – referred to by the company as its “gold standard” – will join a white and slightly altered black version of the 5S. What will set this phone apart from its predecessor is a 64-bit A7 chip, which Wired writes is 40 times faster than the original version of the iPhone.

    The 5S will also feature a snappy 4-inch Retina display that clocks in at 1136 x 640 pixel resolution. The iPhone's camera gets a boost as well with a dual-led flash, a bigger sensor, and clocking in at 8 megapixels. For tech-heads, a new feature for the 5S – what Apple calls the Touch ID – will read fingerprints of the phone's main user by pressing the Home key thus adding a new layer of security.

    The 5S will sell for $199 for a 16GB model, $299 for the 32GB version, and $399 for the top-end 64GB version and will be released September 20 in the States and eight other countries before shipping worldwide.

    The cheaper 5C has been seen as Apple's attempt to challenge Samsung's dominance in the mid-level smartphone market considering iPhones remain as one of the costliest devices around. The 5C will work on a A6 chip and a lower pixel resolution but has the same 4-inch display and camera as the 5S.

    The phone stands out in other unique ways such as having a front-facing camera and will come in five colors: lime green, white, yellow, red and light blue. The 5C will cost $99 for a 16 GB model, and $199 for a 32 GB version, along with a two-year wireless contract. Pre-orders for the 5C will begin on September 13.

    Also announced was the release date for Apple's latest operating system, iOS7. Users can expect the update on September 18.
