The world’s largest maker of electronic components, Foxconn, is rumored to have received an order from Apple for the iPhone 5 ahead of an expected release date sometime in October.
This information comes from a report from Kotaku, where chief of human resources at Foxconn’s facility in Taiyuan explains:
According to a recently published article, the paper asked the head of human resources at Foxconn’s Taiyuan factory about the iPhone 5 release date. The human resources head apparently told the paper, “We just got the order. It [the release] will be around October.
The iPhone 5 is slated to feature sleek new look, as well as a possible 4″ screen. An October release date seems likely, considering Apple is currently testing the new hardware disguised in an iPhone 4 body.
