The mere mention of DigiTimes is often enough to send cursors flying in the opposite direction, and to be honest, I don’t blame them. Heck, even I’m not reading these words, and I’m the one writing them.
For what it’s worth, everyone’s favourite eastern rumour-monger tells us who’s making what when it comes to the next generation of iPhones.
Credit on Ninelu Tu’s article (brilliant name, incidentally) goes to – you guessed it – “sources from the upstream supply chain.” Who else?
Apple is remaining typically quiet about its next smartphone, but it’s widely accepted that the iPhone 6 will arrive in two sizes, specifically 4.7in and 5.5in (or thereabouts).
Good old Foxconn will reportedly put together both models of the iPhone 6, though it’ll share responsibility for the 4.7in model, 70/30, with Pegatron.
Meanwhile, orders for the “existing 4-inch iPhone” (presumably both the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c will stick around at lower price points when the iPhone 6 arrives) will be – we’re told – outsourced to Wistron.
DigiTimes adds that the 4in and 4.7in iPhones will be the “main sales force” for Apple this year, with Foxconn supposedly supplying the 4.7in iPhone 6 from July, and the 5.5in model the month after.
To be fair, nothing here is particularly far-fetched, so we’ll add just a sprinkle of salt to our midday tea.
