If you are looking ahead to the new iPhone 6 from Apple that's set to release this year, here's some good news for you. According to the latest rumors coming out of Asia, mass production for Apple's next iPhone will begin very soon.
As per a Reuters report, Hon Hai Precision Industry is set to gear up the assembly lines and will start producing the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 in the third week of July.
"Mass production of a 4.7-inch successor to the wildly popular iPhone 5 series of smartphones will begin during the third week of July, Taiwan's Economic Daily News said, without citing sources. Production of a 5.5-inch version will begin during the second week of August, it said," the report states.
However, a different report coming out of the China state-run news service says that Hon Hai is currently planning to hire 100,000 workers at its China-based facilities to meet future demand for the handset. The report also cited comments from the chief of the Henan Provincial Commerce Department.
The iPhone 6 is currently expected to be launched on 19 September this year. The device will come with a 1,704 x 960 resolution display, NFC on board and wireless charging.
Rumors have also pointed toward the possibility of a 13 megapixel camera for the new device.
