The iPhone 6s unveiling is likely just a few weeks away, and now we may know when the device will launch too. A new report out of Germany claims carriers are set to start selling Apple’s next smartphones on Friday, September 18, just a little over a week after the company’s rumored event on September 9.

According to Macerkopf, at least two of Germany’s three major carriers are ready to launch the new iPhone on September 18. The report notes that the country is largely dominated by three major mobile networks, which should all be onboard once the release date arrives. Germany is typically one of the first countries to get Apple products along with the U.S., the U.K., France, Australia, Canada, Hong Kong, Japan and Singapore.

The iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus are expected to introduce Force Touch to Apple’s smartphone series, along with a new A9 processor, 2GB of RAM, an improved 12-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel front-facing shooter. The design is unlikely to change very much, though the devices may be reinforced to avoid bending.

Stay tuned for more coverage as the rumored announcement date draws near.
