iPhone 5 landing June, says Foxconn worker

Off-the-cuff comments from a recruiter at Apple’s largest manufacturing partner could have given the clearest signal yet that the next-gen iPhone is now but months away.

In an interview with Chinese news channel World Business Showcast, a Foxconn member of staff was subjected to a Q&A about the company’s business plan.

Asked about staff levels, the employee disclosed that that right now Foxconn is “looking for 18,000 employees” to help cover the demand for the fifth generation phone.

Pressed further, he told his inquisitor that the handset will “come out in June” – a mere nine months after the iPhone 4S dropped.

Quite what to expect to from the iPhone 5 is anyone’s guess right now. But speculation suggests that we’re in for the major upgrade that many had been hoping for with the current-gen iPhone 4S.

Mooted spec sheet fixtures and fittings currently include a whopping 4.6-inch screen to bring the phone more in line with Android rivals, 4G network connectivity and a sinewy quad-core processor.
