Chinese newspaper First Financial Daily is reporting that the next generation iPhone – the iPhone S would be launched in China on November 28, around two months after it makes its debut in the US. The Chinese version of the iPhone 5S would be christened the iPhone 5C , it seems.
The report cites a telecommunications analyst, Yang Tao, who asserts that the iPhone 5C would indeed be coming to China. The reason for the two month delay in the worlds biggest smartphones market is because the device is still under scrutiny by the Chinese Ministry of Industry and Information Technology whose approval is required by Apple to launch the device there. Another fact that the report confirms is that the device would support the China Mobile’s 3G standard – thanks to the Qualcomm made chips that would be housed inside the new iPhone.
We had reported earlier that Apple had asked its iPhone supplier in China to start shipping its new iPhone models. A new report now adds that Hon Hai would also be making the iPhone 5C starting this month and that it would support the TDD-LTE standard used by China Mobile. The current generation iPhone, the iPhone 5 as you might be already aware, is incompatible with the TD-SCDMA network currently used by major Chinese carriers.
