Apple iPhone 6S specs ‘confirmed’ by China Telecom official
Weibo post verifies some features, leaves room for speculation on others
Many of the rumours surrounding features on Apple's forthcoming iPhones have been "confirmed" by an unnamed China Telecom official, online media reported.
The official, posting comments on Weibo, said the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus will become available in China between 18 and 25 September. He claimed to have seen both models and confirmed the presence of Force Touch on each.
The Force Touch feature allows the handset to distinguish between a light tap and a prolonged, hard press from a user, enabling a broader range of functionality. Both the ZTE Axon Mini and the Huawei Mate S will also reportedly carry Force Touch.
The China Telecom official also claimed that Apple had doubled the RAM to 2GB on both models and that the handsets would be powered by Apple's own A9 chipset.
He also claimed the camera would be improved, but did not directly confirm current rumours that the main component would be 12MP.
The Apple iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S are expected to launch on 9 September.
