Apple may be sending a few angry glares in the direction of China Telecom after its network partner seemingly confirmed the iPhone 6 launch, it’s name and some minor device details.
In a post on the Chinese social network Weibo, China Telecom talked up the handset's forthcoming availability alonside an unofficial render of the iPhone 6 (which, contrary to some reports has been around for well over a month).
The post mentions the device will be compatible with a host of wireless networks, including TDD-LTE, FDD-LTE, WCDMA, CDMA2000, GSM, and CDMA1X. It also goes onto say how it’ll be available to buy unlocked in China.
While these details are minor and expected in the grand scheme of things, it’s rare to see a network reveal anything about an Apple device prior to the big launch events.
It’s even rarer to see carriers post unofficial artists impressions of the devices, such as the ones created by design students Thomas Moyano and Nicolàs Aichino and posted to the Behance website way back on July 2.
The real iPhone 6 is likely to arrive at an Apple event scheduled for September 9 and its likely to come in 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch flavours.
Today's update arrives following an earlier leak claiming to reveal the precise dimensions of both iPhone 6 handsets.
Fret not guys, iPhone rumour season is almost over.
