China Mobile launch imminent as iPhone 5s and 5c poster leaks

China Mobile iPhone 5s

The much rumored iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c launch on China Mobile’s network later this year is seen giving Apple a huge boost in China, which is the world’s largest smartphone market. More evidence that a China Mobile launch is imminent popped up on Thursday as Chinese-language MyDrivers.com managed to get its hands on graphics for a poster that will reportedly be used to promote the 5s and 5c once they debut. The poster suggests that the iPhone 5s will support China Mobile’s 100Mbps 4G LTE network, and it also points to a November launch, according to the report. China Mobile is the largest wireless carrier in the world and while the new iPhones are very pricey in China, the imminent China Mobile deal is seen propping up Apple’s lagging market share in the country. An image of the purported poster follows below.
