“Inside sources” cited by China.com [via GForGames], claim that both the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 and the 5.5-inch model will be launched on September 25.

That would be a change of tradition for Apple because it’s a Thursday and the company took the habit of unveiling the smartphone on Friday.

However, the information contradicts a recent rumor claiming that September 19 was chosen by Cupertino as a release date for its new iPhones.

The report adds that the bigger iPhone model will actually be named the iPhone Air.

As for prices, the 16GB version is said to sell in China for 5,998 yuan ($965) while the 4.7-inch model will be rpiced at 5,288 ($850) for 32GB.

On Monday, alleged leaked photos of the front panel of the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 were posted online by famed Apple leaker Sonny Dickson.
