China Mobile has already said that it is keen on selling the iPhone, adding that several issues were getting in the way. It appears as though all of the issues might soon be resolved, and Apple’s new smartphones might finally become available from the world’s largest mobile carrier that touts more than 700 million subscribers. An alleged China Mobile promotional poster for the new iPhones has leaked online, promising support for 3G/4G and blazing fast speeds of up to 100 megabits per second.
Rumor has it that China Mobile will put the new iPhones to the test on its TD-LTE network this month, they’re expected to enter beta mode in October. The carrier is finally expected to market both iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c to customers in November. China Mobile’s 4G TD-LTE network is ready to be fired up, but it is yet to receive the required permission from China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology. The Ministry has previously said that permissions will be granted by the end of this year, though rumors indicate that this might happen in or around mid-October. Once the network is fired up, it is believed that then it would only be a matter of time before both new iPhones are finally launched on China Mobile. [Image via Unwiredview]
