China Telecom accidentally slips news of iPhone 5S, 5C

updated 03:24 pm EDT, Thu September 5, 2013

Supports names of upcoming devices

China Telecom has accidentally confirmed plans to carry the iPhone 5S and 5C, reports say. Earlier today the company posted a statement to that effect on microblogging site Sina Weibo, but it has since been deleted. Telecom is one of the two official iPhone carriers in China, the other being China Unicom.

The missing Weibo message offered to sign people up for pre-orders, with a gift bag as a bonus.

Apple is set to announce new iPhones at an event next Tuesday. A related PR event will be held in Beijing on the 11th. The latter suggests that Apple is already prepared to reveal details about a Chinese 5S/5C launch, possibly one simultaneous with the US. Traditionally China has only received new iPhones months later; it's unclear if or when the country's largest phone carrier -- China Mobile -- will get the device.
