Thai government authorizes two iPhone 6 models for sale

updated 11:23 am EDT, Wed August 13, 2014

Specifications still being kept secret

The Secretary General of Thailand's National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission, Takorn Tantasith, has announced distribution approval for two iPhone 6 models, according to reports and Tantasith's own Twitter account. Apple is said to have filed an import application on August 5th, and received certification and written approval on August 8th. The two models are listed as A1586 and A1524. While government regulations state that such approvals must be declared publicly, the actual specifications of the phones are still being protected.

The approvals may signify that Apple is planning to reveal both its 4.7- and 5.5-inch iPhone models next month. It may also indicate that Thailand will become a first-wave iPhone launch country, rather than part of the second wave as it was with the iPhone 5s. Apple didn't file for Thai import approval of the 5s until September 16th last year, after the device was already public knowledge.
