Both of Apple’s next-generation iPhones will rollout in Japan on Friday, September 20th, according to a report from Nikkei. With the “iPhone 5S” and plastic iPhone scheduled to be introduced at a September 10th media event, a September 20th launch is not a bit surprising based on past history.

For previous iOS Device launches, Apple has released their new devices on the Friday of the week following the media event. Corroborating Nikkei‘s claim is Greece-based Techmaniacs.

The iPhone 5S will retain the same design as the iPhone 5, but come in a gold color option. Also likely in the cards is a biometric fingerprint scanner, improved camera software, and a dual-LED flash. As for the plastic iPhone, this device will likely come in a flurry of colors and be flavored for international markets such as China.
