china mobile iphone

There has been a lot of speculation about the launch of the new iPhones on China Mobile. The world’s largest mobile carrier, China Mobile, is expected to finally begin carrying the iPhones. It has more than 700 million subscribers, which is what makes it the largest mobile carrier. Its rivals, China Unicom and China Telecom, have already been selling the iPhones for quite some time now. A new purported promotional poster has leaked which indicates that China Mobile might release iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c on November 11th.

A few weeks back it was reported that Apple has received the regulatory approval required to put its iPhones on China Mobile’s unique network. The only thing that’s supposedly getting in the way of the release is approval from China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, which is yet to issue a license to the carrier so that it can light up its TD-LTE network. When it has the license in hand, China Mobile can launch its LTE network and the iPhones are likely going to be the poster boys. The promotional poster hints at a November 11th release of both iPhones, which will have access to 100 Mbps download speeds. This would certainly be a breath of fresh air for existing iPhone users on China Mobile. It is believed that there are 42 million iPhones being used on China Mobile as it is, and they’re not even compatible with the carrier’s 3G network, users are stuck with slow EDGE speeds. Moreover, the availability of both new iPhones on the world’s largest mobile network is likely to push iPhone’s sales figures up in China. [Image via CTechCN]
