A date is in sight for the launch of the much awaited iPhone 6. A number of media outlets are pegging the release date of the next-gen smartphone to be Friday, September 19, 2014.

GforGames.com wrote that the Chinese media have been reporting that the rumored 4.7-inch iPhone 6 will be launched on the third Friday of September.

GforGames further claims that unlike previous models, the iPhone 6 may only be available in two capacities, the 32G and 64G, meaning the entry level sporting 16G may no longer be available. The cost of the devices are set at approximately $850 and $1,000, respectively.

This is the second news of a mid-September launch with the first coming from ApfelPage, a German publication. The outlet claimed that mobile operator Deutsche Telekom is working on new deals for expiring contracts. The operator is also reportedly indicating to its customers that the iPhone 6 will be launching on September 19.

BGR.com notes that based on the previous launch dates and patterns of Apple, these rumors are highly possible. Apple has released previous models on days that fall on a Friday every September.

Aside from the 4.7-inch model, there has been rampant speculation of a first-generation phablet from the high-end tech giant, but no mention of the larger 5.5-inch iPhone 6 was mentioned. Macrumors.com recalls that while there has been a high expectation of the dual model release, there have been varied reports on whether the devices would be launched at the same time.

But reports of a production delay, especially on the alleged larger phablet, which may be a possible reason for the lack of confirmation or rumors on the 5.5-inch smartphone.

Additionally, cultofmac.com notes that with the larger screen and use of the sapphire display, Apple consumers should prepare themselves for a possible additional $100 price tag for the larger device.

Some speculated features of the iPhone 6 include a larger display and dimension but the phone will have a thinner and lighter frame pitting it against the design Samsung has been releasing. The devices should also be using the Apple A8 chipset along with a pre-loaded iOS 8 operating system. It's supposed to have enhanced graphics, camera as well as both software and hardware features.

The sheer number of rumors, reports and speculations on the iPhone 6 is a clear indication of the curiosity, interest and high-demand the phone will face. To date, there has been no official word from Apple, addressing any of the rumors circulating around its unconfirmed devices.
