The iPhone 4S, for which Apple fans have waited a very long time, will hit the Chinese market soon.
After obtaining the network entry permit from the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology of China (MIIT), the iPhone 4S received China Compulsory Certification (3C) for electronic products on Dec. 22, meaning that it has met all the requirements for coming into markets of China.
According to latest information from iPhone distributors, the iPhone 4S is expected to hit the market at the beginning of January 2012.
Information on China Compulsory Certification Platform shows a WCDMA digital mobile phone manufactured by Apple Inc. obtained China Compulsory Certification on Dec. 21, 2011. Its applicant is the Apple Computer Trading (Shanghai) Company.
Although the information did not directly point out that this digital mobile phone is the long-awaited iPhone 4S, the model number A1431 is the same number that the iPhone 4S used for obtaining the network entry permit from the MIIT.
Some distributors of Shenyang and Shenzhen have started to receive bookings of iPhone 4S.
