Production of the next iPhone to start in July or August, sales in September
That coincides well with what we've heard so far from analysts and component suppliers. One of the people has clarified for Reuters that the new phone will have a faster processor, and in overall design will stay true to the iPhone 4, but we've already heard that numerous times, haven't we?
Hon Hai Precision Industry, which is the manufacturing arm of Foxconn Technology Group, will start receiving the first shells, screens and camera modules for assembly in July or August. Apple is holding its traditional media event in September, so that might be the spot where the next iPhone will appear officially for the first time, if the sources are correct.
