Apple iPhone 4G Arrival on June 7, Foxconn Supposedly Shipping 24 Million Units in 2010

May 17, 2010, By Atul Roach

Apple will never acknowledge our release date predictions or for that matter anyone’s when it comes to talking about the the next generation iPhone, but we are sure that the smartphone will finally break cover at the Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference on June 7. Our belief stems from the fact that Digitimes has revealed Foxconn will ship 24 million iPhone 4G units in 2010. Out of the whopping inventory, 4.5 millions units will be shipped in the first half of the year while the rest 19.5 million units shall arrive in second half of the year.

Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference is the only event where an announcement could be made and then like ‘usual times’ the first shipment will disappear in the first half of 2010. If early June isn’t the release month, it would make no sense for Cupertino to receive a 4.5 million unit shipment.

Digitimes also mentioned that the upcoming smartphone will feature FFS (fringe-field switching) technology for a wider viewing angle and clearer visual quality in the sun.

Other details include the presence of an Arm Cortex A8 processor, a 960 x 640 resolution screen and a 512MB memory module which implies that the memory capacity has been doubled compared to the 3GS.
