In a not so secretly held rumor the iPhone 6 is coming soon. Thanks to a leaked image in China caught by GSM Insider it appears we now have a date to work with. It appears the new flagship Apple phone can be expected to hit the streets on September 19th. The battle with Samsung for phone dominance will continue since a September release of the Galaxy Note 4 is expected as well. Is this a coincidence? I think not.
If you look at the images in the flyer, you can see one glaring item, there are two sizes of the phone. Many have speculated that this would happen but it appears now we have what could be considered a real view of a 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch variants.
The leaked pricing in that market shows the 4.7-inch variant at 32 GB coming in at 5,288 CNY which converts roughly to $857 US. Meanwhile the 5.5-inch variant at 16 GB will come in at 5,998 CNY which converts roughly to $972 US. Does this mean these are the official US prices? Of course not but it does give you a ballpark to shoot for. Apple users and Fanboys should start selling their 401k shares now to be ready for the release.
There will be more to follow in the coming weeks but it looks like we are getting close to the new flagship Apple release. Apple looks like they are final going heads up at the 5.5-inch size with the Android folks. Let the battle begin.
