Foxconn makes the 4.7″ and 5.5″ iPhone 6 devices official?

Yes, WWDC 2014 is over, and yes, if you were expecting the event to shed some light on Apple’s hardware in the future, you’ll sadly be disappointed. The company spent two hours showcasing what we can expect for the future of its software offerings, but those of you expecting hardware will have to wait until Apple’s usual fall events. Still, that Apple’s partners aren’t making some official statements, one that happened today is kind of a shocker.

Rarely do we see Apple’s partners officially announce that they are working on an Apple product, and specially a product that hasn’t been announced. Foxconn has pretty much just spilled the beans on Apple’s 4.7″ and 5.5″ iPhone 6 units in a statement that reads:

Foxconn to Land 5.5-inch iPhone Orders

5.5 and 4.7 inch iPhone will be manufactured by Foxconn in 2014

MUMBAI, India – June 2, 2014

Foxconn, world’s leading manufacturer of computer components and systems, is going to manufacture both 5.5-inch and 4.7-inch iPhone in 2014.

According the sources, Foxconn will supply 70% of the 4.7-inch iPhone shipments for 2015. The 4- and 4.7-inch iPhones will be the main sales force of Apple for 2014. Foxconn’s plants in Zhengzhou, China are expected to start supplying the 4.7-inch model in July and start manufacturing the 5.5-inch one in August.

Obviously for a launch of these products to happen in the fall, manufacturing needs to start now. We should expect more leaks on these finalized products going forward, as Foxconn is famous for not keeping things under tight control.
