iPhone fans can’t get enough of all the leaks and rumors coming in these days regarding the upcoming Apple smartphones. The company is expected to unveil them next month and both new models might go on sale a week after they have been announced, that’s the way Apple usually releases new iPhones. Chinese carriers offer the company’s smartphones as well and apparently China Telecom has leaked the iPhone 6 quite a bit ahead of time.

China Telecom, a nationwide carrier down in the People’s Republic, posted an image on Weibo which not only confirmed the upcoming launch but also reinstates belief in some of the rumors that we have heard about the iPhone 6’s design.

It can be clearly seen in the image that the iPhone has rounded edges similar to the iPod touch and its shape is similar to many of the leaked iPhone 6 shells that we have seen up till now.

Many saw this Weibo post with some skepticism since it includes a rendered image of the upcoming iPhone. Carriers usually keep whatever they know about new smartphones under wraps until the official announcement from the manufacturer, so its difficult to wrap our head around exactly why China Telecom went ahead and posted this on Weibo.

Expected to be announced on September 9th, the iPhone 6 is believed to have a 4.7-inch display with a slightly different design and improved specifications. A 5.5-inch iPhone 6L is also in the rumor mill these days.
