The British branch of wireless operator T-Mobile indicates in its public iPhone listings that it expects to see four different versions of the next-generation iPhone, including one that packs a meager 8GB of flash storage.
Apple generally reserves such small capacities for previous-generation iPhones that become free (or at least cheaper) with a two-year contract, as the device gets replaced by the newer generation with new features and more storage.
’s inventory system is showing not one, but four “iPhone X” models starting at 8GB capacity, and ending with 64GB (the limit of the iPhone 4S, the third-generation iPad, and the iPod touch today).
An iPhone X listing doesn’t necessarily mean T-mobile has caught wind of anything.
For all we know, they could be trying to create some hype on purpose. Last time we checked, they were “selling against the iPhone” in the US.
Sounds like they’re making a pretty big deal out of tomorrow’s planned announcement in San Francisco’s Yerba Buena Center for the Arts
That’s right, the wait is almost over. While some fans may be disappointed that the cat’s out of the bag (as far as the technical specs are concerned), Apple’s iPhone 5 is all but confirmed at this point.
Even the press invitations sent out by the Cupertino giant included the number 5 as a shadow cast by the 12 (representing September 12, the day of the event). If that’s not confirmation that the company will call it “iPhone 5,” we don’t know what is.
Currently, Apple does business with a lot of carriers around the world. Even regional operators like C-Spire are subsidizing Apple’s smartphones. T-Mobile, however, may have to wait another year to be on Apple’s list in the United States.
