When someone holding the device spins it in their hand, the case appears to change color as it catches the light.

It quickly changes from a navy blue hue to purple that shimmers in the sun.

The video was posted by on Twitter @DuanRui after it went viral on Chinese social media platform Weibo last week.

They said that the purple color appears only when you hold the smartphone at certain angles.

It’s not clear how the person in the video got hold of the device, which remains under strict lockdown before it’s released to the market.

Apple hasn’t confirmed it’s releasing an iPhone 14, but has announced that its annual September event will take place on September 7th.

The tech giant usually unveils the latest iPhone during the event, which takes place at its sprawling Cupertino campus.

A total of four new models are expected to be announced. They will likely hit shelves in late September.

Ahead of the event, leaks have increased in quantity and quality – including the appearance of iPhone “dummy units”.

These are sent to third party manufacturers to help them build screen protectors, cases and more in time for launch.

They have the same casing as the final product without the guts. Photos and videos of dummy units are often leaked in the run-up to a phone’s launch.

It’s unclear how or where the person in the video got hold of the stripped-down device in the video.

Whether the dummy unit is real or a clever fake cannot be verified.

If it’s real, this wouldn’t be the first time a smartphone maker has used a color-changing design.

Honor’s View 20, for example, featured a vibrant V-shaped gradient that caught the light from different angles.

Huawei, China’s biggest smartphone maker, has released a range of eye-catching, shimmering proprietary devices.

Rival tech giant Vivo, on the other hand, has confirmed it’s working on a phone that can change color on demand.

The device comes with “electrochromic glass” on the back that changes the hue of its body at the touch of a button.

Rumors have been circulating for months that Apple is working on a purple version of the next iPhone.

The company is also expected to release the device in more traditional black and white tones.
