Foxconn Employee Says iPhone 5 is Ready for Production, Likely Summer Release?

Posted by · 20097 views · Translate

A Foxconn employee has reportedly told 9to5Mac that the iPhone 5 is being geared up for production.

The site says various sample devices are floating around with slight differences between them.

What They Have in Common
● 4+ inch display (made by LG on at least one of them)
● No teardrop-shaped devices as were rumored in the lead up to the iPhone 4S. Samples so far have been symmetrical in thickness. Also longer/wider.
● None of the sample devices have the iPhone 4/4S form factor
● None of the devices are final versions

Given that the iPhone 4S production didn't start until late Spring last year, if production is starting now it's likely that the iPhone 5 would be released by summer.

The site notes that this same source correctly indicated that the iPhone 4S would not launch last summer.

Too late!!! I will have left by then. Next stop Samsung galaxy note. Smartphone tablet hybrid is the way of the future. Bye bye apple it's been fun.

Haha. Always some poor schmuck bested by over-embellished marketing. If he's not back in a year that just means he's okay with mediocrity.
