While more and more alleged iPhone 5S images become available, it seems the unveiling of Apple's upcoming flagship phone is getting closer. After an announcement regarding a separate iPhone launch event in China, China Mobile published a page (taken down in the meantime) that allows its customers to preorder/reserve the new iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C handsets.

The new iPhone 5 smartphones will offer support for China Mobile's TD-SCDMA network, so the variant(s) of the phone present on this market could be different to the devices offered by Apple to the rest of the world. The Chinese carrier has over 1 billion subscribers at this time, so a device built specially for China will not be a surprise.

This is not the first time when iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C cases appear online, but it is worth mentioning that Spigen also has references to "iPhone 5S/5" and "iPhone 5C" on its website. Since this is Japan's leading case manufacturer, there is little room for error - it is almost certain that Apple's event on September 10 will reveal the new iPhones.

Unfortunately, we have to wait until then to get official information regarding pricing and availability of the handsets outside China. We will get back to this topic as soon as such information becomes available.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
