Leaked Photo of iPhone 5C Units Being Tested at Pegatron?

Posted by · 19562 views · Translate

A leaked photo which shows a pile of iPhone 5C units being tested may have actually come from within Pegatron. The photo was initially dismissed as potentially depicting knockoffs; however, Engadget has done some digging and they believe the photo to be authentic.

But after digging around the original poster's Sina Weibo profile, we deduced that this spy shot came straight out of Pegatron's Shanghai plant, which matches what we've read in the recent China Labor Watch report on Apple. According to her posts, the cheeky employee -- or more likely an ex-employee at this point -- in question joined the company's quality control department around mid-July. In an earlier comment, she also hinted that her plant is responsible for the latest Mac mini as well.

The photo below was captioned with:

"The low-end iPhone 5C to be launched for Chinese consumers in September doesn't look much different than the Xiaomi Phone 2, right?"

Notice the screens appear to be showing a warm-up procedure for quality control. Engadget says they've seen this in factory tours; however, photography was obviously not allowed.

How does an article about iPhones produce comments filled with stereotyped foulness towards black people? That aside, I'm wondering - is the 5C only meant for sale in China?

I guess they were commenting on the cheaper version of the iphone would allow less economically enriched people can now afford them. There by making apple brand less desirable to a higher class.
