iPhone 5S test screenshots on China Mobile show-up, while regional offices start taking TD-LTE pre-orders
The announcement of iPhone 5s/5c on the world’s biggest cellular network – China Mobile, is a given. There’s no “if” about it anymore, it’s only “when”. With more and more signs pointing to late October/early November launch.
We’ve already seen China Mobile’s iPhone 5s/5c promotional posters, and heard the latest rumors about the mid-October as the time China Mobile will receive the license from Ministry of Industry and Information Technology to light up its 4G network for commercial TD-LTE.
Today, some screenshots from iPhone 5s, currently under test on China Mobile, made it to the Net:
Also, confirming the imminent LTE launch, Cellular-News report that local offices of China Mobile in Guanzhou and Shenzen started taking pre-orders for TD-LTE services, while Tech-in- Asia has some screenshots from the same Guangdong provincial affiliate, with 4G plan prices and device subsidies.
No iPhone 5s/5c there just yet. But with all the Chinese 4G hype building-up the way it does now, it shouldn’t take more than a few weeks.
