“Foxconn will ship 24 million units of Apple’s latest iPhone 4G with shipments starting in June, according to Digitimes senior analysts Ming-Chi Kuo citing sources from Taiwan-based component makers,” Willie Teng reports for Digitimes.
“Foxconn will ship 4.5 million units in the first half and 19.5 million units for the rest of 2010. Apple is expected to unveil the iPhone 4G on June 7, 2010 during Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference,” Teng reports. “The new device will adopt IPS (in-plane switching) panels with FFS (fringe-field switching) technology and a 960×640 resolution, Kuo said, noting that LG Display and Prime View International are the panel suppliers.”
Teng reports, “The sharper resolution further widens the gap with Android-based smartphones, which provide 854×480 displays as the highest resolution offerings. The iPhone 4G will run on the Arm Cortex A8 processor… 512MB [of RAM]… [and a 33% thinner touch panel will allow for] more space for larger [and longer lasting] battery modules.”
