Apple iPhone 6 tipped once more to launch on September 19th; $70 million in sales expected for 2014

Apple iPhone 6 tipped once more to launch on September 19th; $70 million in sales expected for 2014
Last month, we told you about a report out of Germany involving the Apple iPhone 6. Reportedly, Deutsche Telekom was telling customers to expect the latest iteration of Apple's smartphone to be in stores on September 19th.  Today, a report out of China is confirming the September 19th launch date for the next iPhone. And since September 19th falls out on a Friday, that would seem to give some legitimacy to the rumor.

According to the same source, the 32GB version of the Apple iPhone 6 will cost 5288 yuan ($850 USD). That currently is the price for the 16GB Apple iPhone 5s in China. The 64GB model will be priced ay 6288 yuan ($1008 USD). These prices are believed to be for the 4.7 inch version of the phone.

Meanwhile, another report, this one from the Topology Research Institute, estimates that the 4.7 inch model of the Apple iPhone will bring in $70 million during 2014. Keep in mind that if the phone launches on September 19th, that leaves a bit more than 14 weeks for the iPhone 6 to ring up enough sales to equal $70 million. TRI expects the 5.5 inch model will bring Apple another $10 million in 2014. Add up the figures and you get $80 million in iPhone 6 sales, forecast by TRI, for 2014.

Thanks for the tip!

The 4.7 will be like the iPhone 5c now. I want to switch my G2 for the 5.5. The G3 did not do anything for me. My GS5 and the 5.5 iPhone will do for this year.

How do you like the GS5? I'm hearing mixed feelings from all different people I meet. I'm definitely keeping my eye on the 5.5 ip6.

It's ok. It's not what fan boys are saying. The camera is quick but takes to long to process the picture afterwards and you need to have a steady hand. Other than that it's ok.

NO 16 GB this time. Probably what distinguishes the 5.5 will be the 128 GB and OIS

$70 million? where does this number come from? why not make $100 million while you at it? why the hell are these guys getting paid so much to make up numbers out of thin air?

Go watch your I/O dude and stop bashing analysts. Good thing you have a nexus so that you can get the redesign. My Galaxy Note 3(SM-N900) would have to wait 2 more years at least LOL #AndroidProblems

Your profile says you have a Nexus 5. The Note 3 gets its updates quickly, so 2 years is exaggerated. And your nick says iGeek. You sound like a troll.

Im pretty sure the article is wrong, they predict 70M units sold, not 70M $ in sales ... 70M$ would mean less than 100k units sold..

Those numbers are unit numbers, not sales predictions. PA obviously didn't check the figures. iPhone sales will be in the billions for the last quarter+, not tens of millions or hundreds of millions.

Yep, it's a result of overpriceness... But anyway, Who cares? I will just get the phones I wanted and warn 'em to not get ripped off. If they still insists to be ripped off then, I would leave 'em alone!

I think getting ripped off is buying something which is still pricey and not getting timely support for it, being overtaken by 4 new models 3 months later and having lag everywhere. Oh, and I don't want to have to root and babysit my phone in order to solve those issues.

Oh yes, true, that's getting ripped off. But there is no phone in this world that has such issues that you've described. $900 for a 4 incher is however, a definite rip off, however.

This number seems low. Apple will rock some serious numbers by end of this year on new sales, no doubt in my mind. Which should inspire other OEM to push themselves harder.
