During a recent interview, SoftBank President Ken Miyauchi may have accidentally revealed the release date of iPhone 11.

According to his comments, the release date would fall on September 20.

SoftBank Mobile President Ken Miyauchi might have accidentally revealed the launch date of iPhone 11 during a quarterly earnings report. We don’t have a concrete date yet, but Ken did inadvertently give out details for the launch. According to him, Apple might unveil the iPhone 11 lineup 10 days before September ends.

On October 1, an updated Telecommunications Business Law will be rolled out in Japan. The law includes a change of separating high end devices like iPhones from the most expensive plans. With the iPhone launch nearing, Ken was asked how SoftBank would handle the new law with the release of the new Apple device, to which he replied, “Honestly, I am wondering what should I do for 10 days. No, I shouldn't say that." He continued by saying, "anyway, I don't know when the new iPhone will be released. However, almost after 10 days, it will be unbundled."

According to his comments, the iPhone 11 could launch 10 days before the law takes place, that is, October 1. Going by his comments, Apple could launch the iPhone 11 lineup sometime around September 20. Coincidentally, the date is falling in line with Apple’s usual release schedule in the past years. 

After realizing his mistake, Ken quickly tried to cover up what he said by mentioning, “no one knows when the iPhone will launch.”

It is rumoured that Apple could launch three iPhone models this year as well. These iPhones are said to feature the A13 chip, and new taptic engine. Additionally, the upcoming iPhone lineup could feature a triple rear camera setup. The three cameras could come with a feature called Smart Frame that would capture the area in pictures and videos around the frame so that the user can adjust the framing or perform automatic perspective and crop corrections in post. However, the extra information would be retained for a short amount of time, and be discarded automatically afterwards, for privacy reasons.
