Two iPhone 6 models confirmed

An official Thai body has confirmed that two new iPhone models are incoming, as previously rumoured.

We’ve heard a few rumours now about two iPhone 6 models being produced simultaneously by Apple, and now the Office of National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC) in Thailand has confirmed that Apple requested premission to import two new smartphones.

Apple iPhone 6 coming in two models confirmed

The news was confirmed by the NBTC chairman, who revealed that the two models were codenamed A1524 and A1586. Unfortunately the NBTC neglected to reveal any more details, but those previous rumours pointed to a standard 4.7-inch iPhone 6 and a larger phablet-sized 5.5-inch behemoth, rather than a ‘premium’ and ‘cheapy’ version like the iPhone 5s and 5c.

Rumours that the phablet version has been delayed due to production issues may result in just one iPhone 6 being revealed at Apple’s grand launch, tipped to kick off on September 9th. We expect to see both new iPhones on show, however, with the fabled iWatch launching later in the year with the new iPads.

The iPhone 6 may well be make or break for Apple, so the next month is going to be critical for the Californian company. More news when we have it.
