Launching Date For "iPhone 5S and 5C" Is Set On September 20th In Japan

Launching Date For iPhone 5S and 5C Is Set On September 20th In Japan 

Japanese publication Nikkei reported Wednesday that Apple's next-generation "iPhone 5S," as well as a less-expensive "iPhone 5C"  are set to be released in the country on Sept. 20 through cellular carriers SoftBank and KDDI. This will put the release date ten days after a media event in which is widely speculated that Apple will reveal the phones.

Apple's current partner carriers SoftBank and KDDI are expected to have both the iPhone 5S and 5C available on launch, while NTT DoCoMo will once again go without.

Apple’s upcoming iPhone 5S is expected to feature a design that is nearly identical to the current iPhone 5, but with a faster processor, an improved camera with a dual-LED flash, an embedded fingerprint scanner and a new gold color option. The mid-range iPhone 5C will likely feature more modest specs and a plastic case that comes in several colors, and it is expected to be priced around $400 off contract.

Falling in with history, Apple typically releases the new iPhone a week and a half after unveiling it. Last year, the iPhone 5 was revealed on Sept. 12 and released on Sept. 21. This would leave Nikkei‘s reported Sept. 20 release date within the realm of possibility.

In this quarter, analysts expect that Apple will be able to sell 5.2 million units of the iPhone 5S and roughly 8 million units of the iPhone 5C. The low cost variant is expected to outsell its bigger sibling just because the company is apparently facing production issues in manufacturing the iPhone 5S.
