China Telecom puts up an iPhone 5S and 5C pre-order page - read the full textRumors of the new iPhones going to China are heating up they're so hot, in fact, that China Telecom just went and posted a pre-order page. It was quickly taken down, but the carrier's Sina Weibo account also posted about the two iPhones (this post was taken down as well). So, here's what's...


Sort by:

I might be a bit late to the party, but the Chinese description at the very top of the second image does explicitly state they are only concept images which as most of us know by now are quite dissimilar to what Apple will likely release.

when iphone 5 was coming, apple delayed its selling on China Mainland market. It didn't get as good selling as the iphone 4 or 4s. Hunger marketing is not suitable to China. Apple should take China market as an important area and list it into the first selling countries.

Having only taken a quick look at the images and content, it all screams FAKE. Some excited fan created some pretty images... that's all.

All apple have done is get the 8 million foxconn returns take of back and refurbish them and stick back on a plastic back..The iphone 5 was not a bigger seller as apple hoped so they got rid of the chipped soft aluminium found a market by making it cheaper and putting on a robust back.SORTED.

Why does the article say they have their fingers crossed for an iPhone with a larger screen, when they have been campaigning for Android manufacturers to produce premium phones with iPhone-sized screens? I don't get it...

Really hope they should do something innovative to maintain the left over market from Android as Macs are hopeless already.

iPhone 5C naming makes sense. The iPhone 5 (in colored version) a not upgraded version but just colored version. iPhone5S must be up in specs, faster, better resolution, better build, better software and hardware.

Anyone agree?
