The iPhone 5 launch appears to be imminent in China, as an Apple device resembling the headset has been approved for a “network access” license, The Wall Street Journal reports. It appears that the iPhone 5 is on track for a December release, as the phone is compatible with China Telecom’s network standard, and as previously reported, China Telecom has already started taking preorders for the phone. China Unicom might launch the iPhone 5 around the same time, but the regulatory website hasn’t addressed Unicom’s mobile standard as of yet. Speculation that the world’s largest mobile carrier, China Mobile, could sell the phone, has yet to be verified. Apple has yet to make an official statement on the iPhone 5’s Chinese release date.
