The device clears FCC which means they are now officially eligible to release the device in the US. Apple filed the iPhone X gold variant documents back in September last year. The FCC listing images reveal the device dimensions from different angles.
In terms of looks, the iPhone X gold variant is pretty much similar to the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus gold variants. Another interesting thing which FCC listing reveals is that Apple prepared the filing back in July 2017 which indicates the company was initially planning to release this variant alongside Space gray and silver variants.
The device images and other details were available soon after the submission but due to the confidentiality clause, the device didn't show up for six months. One of the obvious reason behind the delay in gold variant could be production issues.

At the moment it is still in the dark when Apple will be releasing the gold variant of the iPhone X. The launch will certainly help the company to boost the sales. Apple to hold WWDC 2018 event on June 4th, there are fair chances Apple could release a gold variant of iPhone X at that event. Stay tuned, we will keep you updated.
