Foxconn has strong signal for iPhone 6
Thursday, May 29, 2014
Foxconn is set to become the major contract manufacturer of the 4.7-inch iPhone 6, cornering 70 percent of the production orders. Also, Taiwan's DigiTimes reported yesterday, Foxconn will be the only manufacturer of the 5.5 inch iPhone 6 - the second version in the batch of smartphones expected to hit the streets by year's end. Analysts expect the 5.5 inch version to retail for US$100 (HK$778) more than the 4.7 inch. Foxconn's plants in Zengzhou will supply the 4.7 inch phone as early as July, reaching stores in autumn. The 5.5 inch units go into production in August. Taiwan-based Pegatron and Wistron will assemble the remaining 30 percent of the 4.7 inch iPhone 6.
