Foxconn is reportedly hiring workers for the next generation iPhone, rumored to be the iPhone 5S.

A Chinese-language report claimed that Foxconn has begun large scale recruitment for workers to produce the next generation iPhone. The plant currently has 210,000 workers, compared to the peak of 300,000 in 2012.

The iPhone 5S is rumored to have the same design as the current iPhone. Currently rumors have the device packing a fingerprint scanner, an upgraded camera, better processor, and even a slow motion camera.

The publication's tipster also reports that Foxconn is working on a substantially different product with a borderless design, aluminum/carbon fiber shell and a chassis with 40% percent less weight.

How would it be useless? Having a feature like that would be amazing. No more entering passwords, filling out forms, credit card info, etc. The possibilities are endless. Your device would be a lot more secure. Use your brain and think about it first before you speak and make yourself sound like an idiot.

Such people really need a phone that only have a dial pad and a call/disconnect button. I just don't understand, what are they doing here...
