Foxconn to ship 24 million iPhone 4G units in 2010?
This article contains unofficial information.
DigiTimes is reporting that the contract manufacturer that puts together the iPhone for Apple-Foxconn-will ship 24 million units of the new iPhone 4G in 2010. The report also gives out some info on the specs including the 960 x 640 resolution of the screen. Under the hood will be the Arm Cortex A8 processor and a 512MB memory module from Samsung. This doubles the memory capacity of the 3GS which is necessary to support the multi-tasking of the 4G. Fringe-field switching technology allows for the screen's better performance in direct sunlight. This technology, already used by the HTC Hero, will allow iPhone users to read e-books easily under most lighting conditions, which should allow Apple to better promote its iBooks store. To help improve battery life, the panels on the new model are supposed to be 33% thinner than the previous versions to allow for a larger battery. The report says that 4.5 million iPhone 4G's will be shipped in the first half of the year with 19.5 million units going out during the remainder of the year. The next generation of the iPhone is expected to be introduced at Apple's WWDC on June 7th.
