Report: Both 4.7 inch and 5.5 inch variants of the Apple iPhone 6 to launch September 25th
According to a report out of China published on Thursday, both the 4.7 inch and 5.5 inch versions of the Apple iPhone 6 are expected to be launched on the same day. That date happens to be Thursday, September 25th. Two earlier leaks, including one from German telecom firm Deutsche Telekom, said that the new iPhone would be released on September 19th.

Repeating another rumor that we've heard throughout the last few months, the version of the iPhone with the 5.5 inch screen will be known as the Apple iPhone Air. In China, the 4.7 inch Apple iPhone 6 is tipped to be priced at 5288 Yuan ($850 USD). The phablet sized model is rumored to carry a starting price of 5998 Yuan ($965 USD).

As far as when we will see the new two new iPhone models introduced, the source says that this will take place on Monday, September 15th. China Mobile and China Unicom are both allegedly in the process of testing a prototype of the iPhone 6 on its 4G network.,

You get your money's worth. Better to pay a premium for quality than pay pennies for a piece of junk.

iPhone is a flagship device. It's the same price as every other flagship. You can argue about quality or build, I'd say Apple is better quality, but let's just say every flagship phone is equal in quality. Well, then if the price is the same and the quality is the same, then the only difference is, the iPhones sell for significantly more when you go to sell them. iPhones hold their value better. So, I'd say you do get your money's worth.

Sorry man , i love apple but i thinks apple really charge too much for the screen size unless its 4k display , if not 850 is too overpriced.

for a 1,000$ you might as well buy a MAC BOOK MINI instead of a 5.5" iphone

OMG, please stop these nonsense articles. Who cares about whether the iPhone 6 launches on the 19th or 25th of September? I am waiting impatiently for the iPhone 6 myself but I cannot stand it anymore. Same goes for these stupid leaks.

Get used to it. When the iPhone 6 releases, they'll be talking about the 6S next.

What I can't wait for is when Alan starts his bi-daily "what color will the next iPhone be" routine! New iPhone season is nearly upon is!

A phablet costing that price of $965 unsubsidize is equivalent to a decent Windows 8.1 laptop. other news, this'll be interesting to see both models release at the same time. I find it revolutionary for Apple ;)

why the hell would i pay over 1000 dollars with tax for an iPhone when i can buy the current best android which then, will probably be either the nexus 6, note 4 or Z3. The price is now the main factor keeping me away from apple still

Until now, I used to wonder why Apple wouldn't produce a larger screen phone. I have a feeling, when this new phone is released, people are going to flip out, go crazy and buy these like hotcakes. They are going to reel in #'s like crazy. And like I have said in the past, the small screen size was the biggest reason for me making the change to the Android market. Not to say I won't stay with the Note series phones, but this will make it very hard not to go back. And If I had to guess, there are others that feel the same way. This fall is going to be awesome for people that like the oversized screens. Holla

I was hoping they would name the 5.5" version "Pro" like the MacBook Pro and the Mac Pro, but if it is thinner than the 4.7" I guess "Air" works also.

I can't wait to see these puppies. A large screen iPhone is a must have for me. I hope the final release features the rounded edges, and a flat back.

Note 4/Galaxy F/Nexus 6 and IPhone Air 5.5 are the ones I'm most interested in for the fall, at a stretch the Xperia Z3 compact too as I use the excellent Xperia Z1 Compact.

You will be camping with your middle aged wife,. Seriously? A big huge immature kid, 45 years of age camping along with underage kids and grown ups. Wth. Lmfao. Surely you will be stalking underage girls. Paedophile? You last time said: you rob and steal others gadgets. So how can you afford to buy 2 expensive iPhones, when you can't afford to feed and look after your family? I don't believe you will and can afford to buy it? I think you would steal it, or come up with a scam to gain and fulfil it's upon utmost indesire, to obtain?

You misspelled pedophile, if you're calling me a pedophile, don't use a question mark, that means you're asking if I'm one. You also misspelled fulfill. "I don't believe you will and can afford to buy it?" How about: I don't believe you can afford, or will buy them, since I mentioned two phones. Gee wiz dude, you really are just a trolling dumb a$$. Maybe RoundhouseMcGee will come to your aid, once he reads this. You're a sad little troll. DYELB?

These types of comments are NOT okay. It's one thing to call someone an idiot for making a comment that makes no sense. It's another thing to make personal attacks against someone's family & character. You need to grow the f*ck up. Seriously. I am completely tired of reading these inane comments you constantly make. This is a tech website. Nothing more. Keep your immature & ignorant attacks out of it. I have no interest in reading this garbage. I have reported you. I hope they throw the ban hammer at you for good.
