Apple have a conference scheduled for September 9th and at least one version of the iPhone 6 is due to launch on 20th September. Two final versions are expected, a 4.7″ and a 5.5″ which may well go up against Samsung’s Galaxy Note 4. Apple usually like to be the first to announce a new iPhone but it looks like China Telecom didn’t get the memo this time around, if a picture that has appeared on Weibo is anything to go by.
The picture shows the same 3 colours as on the iPhone 5S with gold, silver and black/grey with a more rounded design similar to the 5C but retaining the styling from the 5S. The dual tone flash seems to have disappeared or been amalgamated into a single ring. The other point of note is the extra button on the side, will this be the lock/unlock button moved for the first time on an iPhone or possibly a camera shutter button? The thinner outline below looks like it will be the sim tray.
