    Only Apple can really answer that, but I'm thinking because the polished Space gray is in close proximity to the Jet Black color.

    Is there a point to a glossy black finish when the back of the phone is glass? It's not like the glass will have a matte finish to it.

    I don't even understand why it's being named space gray considering it looks pretty black.

    Can you explain please? Sounds like it would be easier just to call it black. Unless you mean that calling it "space gray" just sounds like a cool term.

    You got it. Space gray sounds way cooler and way cooler = price premium.

    I'm not a fan of the jet black look, but I'm wondering why Apple is calling the new iPhones with the black faceplate "space gray." Looks a lot more like the matte black to me.

    Why is the Jet Black discontinued? What about Matte Black, Copper, Red, Pink, White, Yellow Polka-Dots? We will never get an answer on colors.. just have to live with the cards we're dealt.

    It’s more of a darker gray than matte black.

    Personally I think Apple has limited the colors on the new models to streamline their manufacturing process. I think you will see some unique colors coming at a later date like the limited red model on the iPhone 7. Now it's wait and see.

    That’s what I thought of too.. I’m sure an all black will return at some point in the future.

    After several launches they have finally figured out that having enough units to satisfy their orders is more important then having a couple more colors to choose from. Being in the manufacturing sector my entire carrier, I think it's the smart decision.

    Personally, i think Apple knew that the iPhone 7 design was "boring", so to spice things up a bit, they added a couple extra colours to make things feel a little more exciting. They even added a 'Product RED' colour early the following year. But with the Launch of the iPhone X. The phone is super exciting enough by itself and no real need for extra colours.

    Maybe also with the glass, its a little harder to make a lot of colour options? I'm not sure. Im still crossing fingers for a all white colour option with maybe a product RED colour early next year.

    Don't see the point of a glossy black when the back is glass. It's going to be glossy in any color.

    You mean matte?
    Yeah it will be reflective for sure, an all black would’ve been nice as compared to the new space grey.

    I didn't get the 7 model because my 6s + was working great then. Now I'm getting the 8 and there is no matte black. I love how sechsy it looks. I am sad. Should I go with the 7+ just to get my matte black sechsyness? Decisions.

    Bc jet black was a quick and overrated fad. I was so hyped for it when announced and stupidly delayed me getting the iPhone 7 Plus bc I had to have it. Then as soon as I received it those micro abrasions freaked me out and I’ve never even enjoyed the jet black as it has been hidden in a case for the last year!
