It's the rumor season now for the iPhone 6 as more details begin to surface on what to expect from Apple later this year.
According to a leaked promotional flyer in China, two Apple iPhone 6 devices - a 4.7-inch and a 5.5-inch model - will be hitting retail shelves on September 19. In addition, the 4.7-inch model is priced from 5,288 yuan (approximately S$1,056) while the 5.5-inch variant will start with a price tag of 6,288 yuan (approximately S$1,256). Both retail prices are based on currency exchange rates at press time.
The details revealed by the promotional flyer seem legit. If you recall, Apple launched the iPhone 5S/5C in Singapore on September 20 last year while the iPhone 5 made its debut on September 21, 2012. In addition, a reliable source of MacRumors claimed that Apple is likely to unveil the new iPhones in the first or second week of September with retail availability scheduled a week and a half after.
However, we caution readers to take the latest report with a pinch of salt. There are also other conflicting reports on the availability of the upcoming iPhones. KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo suggested a week ago that the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 may be delayed until next year due to production issues while the listing on Amazon Japan pointed to stock availability of the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 towards the end of September.
