Suppliers running 'intensive delivery' of parts for low-cost iPhone

updated 11:42 am EDT, Thu June 13, 2013

TSMC, Largan, Foxconn, Texas Instruments among mentioned suppliers

Apple suppliers are now engaged in "intensive delivery" of a "large number" of parts for a low-cost iPhone, says the Commercial Times. TSMC is reportedly delivering 28nm processors, while Largan Precision is supplying an 8-megapixel camera. Foxconn is providing a battery module and most of the inner frame, while Taiflex Scientific is handling a flexible circuit. Other suppliers are said to include Chipbond, Kinsus, SPIL, Texas Instruments, and Renesas Electronics.

The goal is believed to be having a mass quantity of phones ready for the second half of 2013, compensating in part of the dearth of major Apple products during the first half of the year. The Times says that the low-cost iPhone could ship as soon as August, but that date would conflict with other rumors pointing to September or even 2014.
