According to reports, SoftBank Mobile President Ken Miyauchi accidentally revealed the release date of the Apple iPhone 11 during the Japanese company’s quarterly earnings report presentation.

Aside from discussing the mobile user numbers growth that has led to an increase in profit by four percent, Miyauchi inadvertently noted that the upcoming flagship phone is set to go on sale ten days before the end of September. The president leaked the information when he was asked by a journalist about a new telecommunications law going into effect October 1 which would see carriers in Japan splitting data cost from device prices in customer contracts. If the release date is true, the September 20 drop would fall in line with the time frames we saw with the release of the iPhone XS and XS Max.

Although the leaked info isn’t confirmed, Miyauchi did try to cover up his slip up by saying “no one knows when the iPhone will launch” adding to the validity of his comment.

For more tech news, Facebook is set to rename both Instagram and WhatsApp.
