The media in China is reporting that at a shareholder meeting convened yesterday, Pegatron Corporation Chairman Mr. Tong Zixian revealed that his company has gone on a hiring spree in its factories across China, because of the large number of orders it expects for the Apple iPhone 6s.
For the uninitiated, Pegatron Corporation is an electronics manufacturer based out of Taipei, Taiwan. The company happens to be one of the major contract manufacturers for Apple, alongside companies like Foxconn, for iPhones and iPads, among other products.
According to media speculation, the next generation iPhone will likely go into production before August this year, given that the device will, in all likelihood, be announced by Apple in September or October.
While Apple has not given out any details about its upcoming device, according to previous information, it is understood that the iPhone 6s will come with the same 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch screen sizes as the current-generation devices. The smartphone however, will be powered by an A9 processor from Apple, and come with 2 GB of LPDDR4 RAM.
The camera is also said to be a different one from the current generation iPhone 6. While some have speculated that Apple will introduce a dual camera set-up on the rear, others believe the 6s will be equipped with a 12 MP camera from Sony. Of course, only time will tell which way Apple will go in the end.
In any case, Pegatron seems to be well prepared to take on the challenge of manufacturing the vast number of iPhones, come August this year. If all goes well, Apple fans can expect to see the iPhone 6s in September this year.
The sales of Apple’s iPhones have risen exponentially, mostly on account of increased screen sizes, after years of stubbornly sticking to smaller 4-inch screens. It will certainly be interesting to see what the company has in store for the next generation iPhone. I’m sure we’ll get more leaks as the production process starts and we get closer to the launch date.
