China Telecom Advertises Plans to Sell Unlocked iPhone 6

Posted by · 11169 views · Translate

China Telecom briefly posted an ad showing a rendering of an iPhone 6, with plans to sell an unlocked version of the device that will work with all carriers in the country. China Telecom said it would unlock the unreleased iPhone 6, meaning the device would support 4G LTE (both TDD-LTE and FDD-LTE) and other networks including WCDMA, CDMA2000, GSM, and CDMA1X.

Current iPhones sold by China Telecom only accept SIM cards issued by the carrier because the devices only support the carrier's CDMA2000 and 2G CDMA network. With China Telecom unlocking the device, subscribers can use LTE and put China Telecom in a position to compete with other carriers in the region. This news also indicates that Apple could be making a single version of each iPhone model for the Chinese market.

China Telecom has since deleted the post from their Weibo account.

The rendering you see in the ad below were posted on Bechance earlier last month. What do you think of these renders versus what we've seen from the leaks?
