China Telecom posts, then quickly pulls photo of Apple’s iPhone 6

“China Telecom, China’s third largest telecom players trailing behind China Mobile and China Unicom, announced on Monday that the version of the next-generation iPhone sold by the carrier is going to support all the wireless networks in the country,” Cyrus Lee reports for ZDNet. “”

“In a Weibo tweet posted by China Telecom’s Shanghai branch on Wednesday afternoon, the carrier said it will unlock the unreleased smartphone,” Lee reports, “meaning the upcoming iPhone 6 sold by China Telecom is going to support dual 4G network, both TDD-LTE and FDD-LTE, and a variety of other networks including WCDMA, CDMA2000, GSM, and CDMA1X, according to a Sina news report.”

“The Weibo tweet also came along with a capture of next-generation iPhones in three different colors, identical to iPhone 5 which are offered in black, silver, and gold,” Lee reports. “However, China Telecom deleted the Weibo tweet subsequently, after being forwarded over 300 times by Chinese users.”

    1. Why did you just pluck 2 years out of the ether? Why not 1, 3 or 4 for that matter. And out of interest if they aren’t square-ish edges this past few years what other shape than round could they be if they are to be changed and why would you presume that is the only change to the phone anyway, just seems completely pointless or were you expecting a triangular phone?

  1. Doesn’t anyone else think it’s hilarious that just as Samsung reveals a ‘new look’ for their phones featuring a flat metal band obviously copied from The iPhone, Apple moves on?

  2. Now that’s what I expect from Jony Ive. All these pictures with those wide white bands and the protruding lens make the phone look incomplete, like something from the Droid world. Let’s hope the phone in that rendering is closer to the real thing.

  3. It’s fake.. “even better” major LOL is this is the tag line. And the similar color background to the gold phone is a design accident Apple would not make.

  4. These renders look a 1000% better compared to the ginormous white-line bands, protruding camera lens, 2008 bezels, plastic lip around the top of the bezel on the TMZ Frankensteined hunk of dung.
