An individual claiming to be an official representative of China Telecom has raised excitement levels for the iPhone 6s. The alleged rep, apparently an employee of China Telecom which is one of Apple’s official strategic partners in the Chinese market, has reportedly confirmed a number of rumors pertaining to the specification of Apple’s upcoming iPhone 6s. In doing so, the representative has also cast doubts on whether or not Apple will actually introduce a new color option. Bad news for those excited for the speculated pink/rose gold model.
As is usually the case with leaks of this nature, the as-yet-unnamed source leveraged the power and reach of social media to spread the good word on Apple’s next-generation iPhone. In this particular instance the social network of choice was micro-blogging network Weibo, which is supremely popular in China. The first “reveal” that was leaked relates to when consumers can expect to be able to purchase the device, with the mysterious individual claiming that the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus will both be available for purchase between September 18 and September 25.
That fits in with previous suggestions that pre-orders would begin two days after the September 9 media event. The source has also “confirmed” that both models of the new iPhone will ship with a brand new Apple A9 processor under-the-hood, as well as an improved 2GB of RAM to dramatically improve device performance. Consumers can also look forward to the inclusion of Force Touch, as widely predicted over the last few months, as well as an improved rear camera module that should see it bumped up to a 16-megapixel shooter.
So far there’s no real information there that we haven’t already been privy to. Many potential purchasers of the iPhone 6s will be pleased to know that the technical spec of the device is as previously reported. What they won’t be glad to hear, is that the alleged China Telecom rep has cast doubts about the existence of a pink/rose gold colored iPhone 6s or 6s Plus. In all honesty, it’s highly unlikely that any individual, whether an official rep of China Telecom or not, would have this level of information prior to an official Apple announcement.
Were you looking forward to a pink/rose gold iPhone? Let’s hope Apple has you covered.
