Just last week we heard that Foxconn’s was gearing up for production of the iPhone 5 ahead of a likely summer launch. The Commercial Times quotes Daiwa Securities analysts in their latest report on the iPhone 5 which says the same.
The iPhone 5 will continue to utilize glass to glass (G/G) touch panel technology which will benefit current touch panel suppliers TPK Holding and Wintek, the paper quoted the securities house as saying.
The report expects the iPhone 5 to be announced at Apple’s WWDC which is held in June (likely 10-15th) this year. Obviously, last year the iPhone 4S was released in October, a significant change from the previous four generations of iPhone which were released at or around WWDC in June.
For those who bought the iPhone 4 at launch on a two year contract (guilty), their contract will be up this summer.
