With an early September introduction of the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C all but guaranteed, we're gaining more insight each passing day with regard to Apple's anticipated international roll-out of the new iPhones.
Based on what we've learned late Tuesday, Japanese publication Nikkei is reporting that Apple will release the iPhone 5S and 5C in Japan on September 20th.
The report notes that cellular carriers SoftBank and KDDI will offer both iPhones.
Similar to what domestic sources have been consistently reporting, the Japanese media outlet also asserts that September 10th will be the date of Apple's big reveal. Additionally, Nikkei says the 5S will deliver an upgraded processor and camera, fingerprint reader, and an expanded selection of device colors.
It should be noted that the Nikkei is Japan's largest business daily and is not a tabloid publication that routinely spreads rumors. As a result, it's report today is carrying a lot of weight and generating ample excitement from iDevice loyalists as September draws near.
