Everything from the iPhone 6’s front panel to its feature set have leaked in some way over the past few months, and it seems all that’s left to speculate on is its release date. That date may be drawing near, as a leaked promotional flier from China suggests that the handset will drop on Sept. 19, keeping consistent with Apple’s early-fall release window for new iPhones.
The flier, posted on Chinese social network Weibo and published by GSM Insider, shows both the 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch variations of the iPhone 6, along with regional pricing info for each.
Both purported iPhones shown in the flier are black with rounded edges, each sporting a glossy, black Apple logo on the back panel and a camera lens on the top left. This design looks fairly similar to the leaked back panel we saw a few weeks ago, though that casing came in a silver finish.
Sept. 19 looks like a solid potential release date for Apple’s next handset, as German wireless carrier Deutsche Telekom previously told its customers to hold out until that date for the iPhone 6. Sept. 19 is a Friday, which is when Apple traditionally releases new iPhones to incite the weekend shopping rush.
A related report from Digitimes claims that Foxconn Electronics is recruiting 100,000 new production workers for its Chinese factory. The report states that Foxconn is looking to produce around 120 million new iPhones by the end of 2014. That likely means that iPhone 6 production is in its final stages.
