The iPhone 6 launch date may have leaked.

Per MacRumors and GForGames, “inside sources” have cited that the iPhone 6 will be announced on Monday, September 15th and launch on Thursday, September 25th. The sources also claim that the larger 5.5-inch iPhone will be called the “iPhone Air”, with the 16GB version selling in China for 5,998 yuan (US$965). Meanwhile, the 4.7-inch version will reportedly start at 5,288 (US$850) for 32GB, which is the current price of the 16GB iPhone 5s in China.


The report contrasts with a story from Chinese web portal Tencent last month claiming that Apple would launch the 4.7-inch iPhone on Friday, September 19, which would be in line with the past two iPhone launches. Apple typically launches new products on a Friday, while a Thursday launch would be unlikely.

Other rumors have stated that Apple would abandon the 16GB capacity on the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 and offer a 128GB capacity for the 5.5-inch version of the handset.

Aside from a larger display, the iPhone 6 is expected to come with a thinner profile, a faster A8 processor, and other new features. The camera of the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 is also said to feature an optical image stabilization system, while the smaller 4.7-inch iPhone will use a new lens module.

As always, stay tuned for additional details as they become available.
