Would-be iPhone 6 owners should brace themselves to pay more than they anticipated for their sparkling new smartphone, a leaked flyer from China suggests.
The promotional waybill, which was posted on Chinese site Weibo and was brought to us by GSMInsider, shows what appears to be the iPhone 6 4.7-inch edition with a price tag of (RMB 5,288) or $850 US.
Going by the usual differential between UK and US Apple pricing, that ought to equate to an asking price of about £650 on this side of The Pond for the entry-level model.
That compares to a tag of £549 for the 16GB iPhone 5S and appears to corroborate long-standing rumours that Apple will hike the price of its flagship phone this time.
The 5.5-inch model, meanwhile, is priced $1012 (RMB 6,288). It’s hard to be hard and fast here, but once again Apple’s past form suggests this will mean a UK price of about £800 or so.
The flyer also suggests that both iPhone 6 size options are being unveiled on September 19th That’s broadly in line with Apple’s previous release schedule.
News of Apple’s plans come after uSwitch Tech today leaked unseen images of the rear housing for Apple’s phone, which added weight to rumours that a light-up notifications logo will be a feature of the handset.
It’s also expected to pack a more robust version of Apple’s Touch ID scanner and a redesigned shell with more curved edges and repositioned buttons.
