Apple’s new iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C will be available to buy in Japan from September 20, according to a new report from Japanese publication Nikkei, writes AppleInsider. The two new iPhones will be available on Japan’s SoftBank and KDDI carriers, but not on NTT DoCoMo. This would be just 10 days after a September 10 event where Apple is expected to unveil the two new phones, so could possibly also indicate that September 20 is the date that the new iPhones will launch in other major territories, including the US and Europe.

The Nikkei report also states that Apple will be offering a new gold-coloured option for the iPhone 5S, backing up other recent rumours on the topic, according to AppleInsider.

The Nikkei story was pretty light on other details about the two new iPhones, although it did mention rumours about a fingerprint reader for the iPhone 5S.
