DigiTimes is reporting
that a number of manufactures in China will receive orders for components that will eventually become 4G iPhones. Previously, TPK Touch Solution and Wintek
have produced touch displays for Apple. Its being said that they'll produce iPhone 4G panels as well, with the addition of Chimei and Innolux.
As usual, Foxconn
will assemble the device (they put the 3G iPhone together). In fact, the Chinese language newspaper Economic Daily News
reports that Foxconn began receiving 4G components in April. DigiTimes offers the following break down of what will come from where:
- Foxconn will handle assembly
- TPK, Wintek, Chimei and Innolux will produce touch panels
- TXC will handle quartz components
Other components, like the camera module and flexible copper-clad laminate will be handled by Largan Precision and Taiflex Scientific, respectively.
Here's hoping we have these in our hot little hands before too long.
