We think we know that the iPhone 6 will be revealed at Apple’s press event next week, but we don’t really know when we’ll actually be able to get our hands on it. But according to Dutch news site iPhonez, a phone network has revealed to it that the iPhone 6 will be available for pre-order (in The Netherlands) on 19th September.
We can’t really verify this information, but the date certainly isn’t too far fetched given when we’ve assumed the phone is going to be announced. While this date might be specifically relevant to The Netherlands, considering it is an EU country it’s not far-fetched to assume that pre-orders will open for the rest of Europe at roughly the same time.
But that’s not all, iPhonez also revealed that the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 will retail for €699 off contract, which is roughly the same price as previous iPhones. Directly converted that price is £555, which sounds about right to me (the iPhone 5S is currently £549 for the cheapest model).
Other than that we have no other information on when the phone will actually be released. Then again if pre-orders do open around the 19th September, we should be seeing them in early October at the very latest. [iPhonez via Neowin]
