As we get nearer to Apple’s launch of the iPhone 6 sometime this fall, we are certainly going to see a lot of rumors and leaks hitting the web. They will just keep on coming. The newest one comes to us from China.com.
According to the Chinese language website, Apple is planning to announce its next iPhone on September 15 and will start selling it on Sept. 25. As you might know, Apple launched it’s iPhone 5S, 5C, 5 and 4S on Fridays. But the 25th of September is a Thursday. A release date more believable is probably the 19th of September, which was suggested by a rumor back in May and also by another one last week.
And we are also hearing that the rumored 5.5-inch phablet version of the iPhone 6 will be called “iPhone Air”. Apparently, there will be a 16GB variant of the handset. Rumor suggests that the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 will come with a price tag of 5,288 yuan (about $850), while the 16GB phablet will cost 5,998 yuan (about $965).
China is expected to be among the first countries to get Apple’s next-gen iPhone, and China Mobile and China Unicom, the company’s partners, reportedly have already started testing iPhone 6 prototypes on their 4G networks.
Previous rumors have said that the new iPhone will come with a relocated power button and be thinner than previous iPhones. The device should also feature advanced internals such as an “A8” processor.
