China Mobile reveals final Apple iPhone 6 specs

China Mobile reveals final Apple iPhone 6 specs
Just a little over 20 hours before the introduction of several Apple devices, China Mobile has listed the specs for the 4.7 inch Apple iPhone 6 on its website. According to the world's largest carrier, the iPhone 6 will be driven by an Apple A8 chip with a quad-core CPU. Earlier rumors had the device powered by a dual-core CPU, so right off the bat we have a possible contradiction.

The carrier says that the resolution on the screen is 750 x 1134. According to China Mobile, all models will have sapphire glass. This goes against information from connected Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who first said that only the 128GB version of the 5.5 inch Apple iPhone phablet would receive the sapphire glass treatment. Last week, Kuo backtracked and said that drop test failures caused Apple to do away with the use of sapphire glass on all models.

According to China Mobile, Apple once again has decided to stick with an 8MP rear camera. The front-facing snapper will weigh in at 2.1MP. The specs on the carrier's site call for four tiers of storage: 16GB, 32GB, 64GB and 128GB. China Mobile says that the new iPhone will be dustproof and waterproof. That would be a surprise since we haven't heard one thing about this for practically the entire year. The iPhone 6 will be available in black, white and gold according to China Mobile, and features dimensions of 138mm x 67mm x 7mm. 

The carrier says that the Apple iPhone 6 will be launched on September 19th, confirming earlier rumors. As expected, the 5.5 inch model will not be launched until a later date. The latter's specs are not yet available, according to China Mobile, adding yet a little more mystery about what exactly Apple will be unveiling tomorrow. And just because these specs are on China Mobile's site doesn't mean they are etched in stone. Continue to keep that salt shaker handy, just until tomorrow.
