iPhone 6: Pegratron Expected to Receive 50 Percent of Orders

The iPhone rumor mill is starting up again, and today we’ve already heard a few new tidbits about what to expect. First, apparently Apple is sticking with an 8-megapixel camera, and second, Apple has already apparently tapped Pegatron to build a large bulk of its next flagship units.

According to a report fromĀ The Liberty Times, a Taiwanese news outlet, Pegatron is expected to receive half of Apple’s orders for the iPhone 6. The translation is a bit hard to read, though it seems to suggest that Pegatron was tapped because of its capacity for greater production thanks to a new plant tin Kunshan. Pegatron also worked on the iPhone 5s, as did Apple’s other major manufacturer, Foxconn.

The report also suggests Apple’s iPhone will be thinner and lighter and will feature a 5-inch screen. That lines up with what we’ve heard in the past, though Apple has so far strayed from any public acknowledgment that it’s interested in creating a larger iPhone.
