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.
Packaging and testing firm Siliconware Precision Industries is likely to join work on Apple's A6 processor, industry sources allege. Apple officials are said to have recently visited SPIL's assembly line and engaged in talks. SPIL has so far denied any speculation, but Apple's suppliers are typically hesitant to talk about connections with Apple and/or other clients.
