According to Taiwan’s Liberty Times, Cupertino has requested one of its main suppliers, Pegatron, to prepare the production of its next flagship smartphone.
In order to begin manufacturing the device, Pegatron will start the construction of a new plant in Kunshan, China, dedicated to the device.
Until now Foxconn had been Apple’s main partner in producing the iPhone. The Hon Hai company is known to have produced the iPhone 5S, while the iPhone 5C manufacturing was assigned to Pegatron.
Photos of the iPhone 6’s thin chassis leaked online this week, fueling rumors about a bigger display.
