iPhone 6 (retail box, Martin Hajek 004)

Apple this morning sent out invitations¬†for a media event on September 9th, where the company is expected to unveil the iPhone 6 and a new wearable device. We’ve heard conflicting theories¬†on whether or not we’ll see one or two new handsets on stage, but a new report out this afternoon¬†suggests the former.

According to website GforGames, “informed sources” are telling Chinese media outlets that only the 4.7-inch version of the iPhone 6 will make an appearance at the event, alongside a new 5s model with 8GB of storage. Apparently¬†the larger 5.5-inch iPhone¬†will make its debut later this year in limited¬†quantities.

In a second report the site points to a scoop from MovilZona, who has sources inside Spanish carrier Telefonica that say both the 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch versions¬†will be very expensive. The source claims the¬†smaller iPhone 6 will cost¬†750 Euros ($988 USD), and¬†the 5.5-inch 950 Euros, though it doesn’t specify storage.

While we have heard that Apple may charge a premium for the larger iPhone 6, we’ve seen little in terms of pricing¬†as a whole. We’ve also heard conflicting intel¬†regarding the 5.5-inch iPhone and the iWatch launching this fall, as reports of production issues and few part leaks have spurred¬†speculation of serious delays.

Bloomberg, however, is reporting this afternoon that both the iWatch and larger 5.5-inch iPhone 6 model are a go for next month’s media event. Apple is of course keeping mum on the details, but it renting out¬†Cupertino’s extra-large Flint Center to host the keynote suggests that whatever it has planned, it’s going to be big.
