Foxconn Chairman says the iPhone 5 “Will Put Samsung’s Galaxy III to Shame”

Posted:  June 24, 2012   By:    17 comments   

Foxconn makes iPhones, a lot of iPhones, along with other Apple products like the iPad and iPod touch, and gadgets from other big tech companies too like Microsoft’s Xbox and Sony’s PlayStation. And if someone of a considerable deal of influence — say, like the Chairman of Foxconn — talks about an anticipated product that has not been released yet, you can bet that there’s some degree of credibility in what that person says.

In this case, Foxconn’s Chairman Terry Gou told China Times at a recent annual shareholder’s meeting straight up that consumers should “wait for the launch of the iPhone 5″ because “the new model will put Samsung’s Galaxy III to shame”.

Those are mighty words coming from a man that would probably know more about the iPhone 5 than anyone else outside of Cupertino and it makes you wonder if Apple does see Samsung and the Galaxy S III as a real threat. It also makes you that little bit more curious as to what goodies the new iPhone will bring when it is unveiled possibly this October.

As for now, all we know about the iPhone 5 are rumours including a longer and thinner all-aluminium body housing a 4-inch screen that is expected to have a high enough screen resolution for Apple to tag the Retina Display name on it.

Let us see a show of virtual hands, how many of you are holding off your next smartphone purchase just to see what the new iPhone will bring?

Please take care your employee first la lol


I'm holding out for a Nokia Windows Phone 8 + Pureview. These two are the most exiting thing happening in the smartphone right now. Just hope Nokia can climb out of their death spiral to make it happen.


i'm holding out for note 2 by that time.. i believe note 2 will bring much more exciting feature and also put ip5 ashame in some area.. there is no one phone in this world yet to bring all the goodies in one body.. each or other will have their own benefit on it.. and so many bad news abt how foxconn bad treat their employee.. maybe they should really built up their own reputation first before start to attack other…


    same la us. tunggu note 2. 5.5 inch screen ftw


      Note2 6.6 inch perfect. Can strap to chest when not using lol!


    I m sorry but how can u compare Note with Ip5 when their market is different. Note is categorized as phoblet (phone+tablet) ip5 is smartphone. If u wan to compare its ip5 vs galaxy s3. Get ur facts right. Who would wan such a freaking big screen as a phone unless u wan combination of phone and tablet. Thats phoblet for u.


Talk big. It better be good. Don't make another fail hype 4s.


I'm not! What's so interesting about iOS6? It's the same old interface? Same icons?


now even Foxconn ppl can make Apple-related statements… last time when SJ was still around, you think these people will dare make such statements and not get whacked by SJ?!?

Mah Li San

Foxconn, the YTL Yes Eclipse phone maker?


    The most sucks phone with overrated price.thats y apple selling expensive iphone made by foxconn.


foxy conman = well..u guess it


True or not! iOS6 is already a underdog what more the phone can give?


    Well,apple loyal user wont c it as underdog.they only accusing other player copycat to ensure it,they will start patent war suing,even drop several time by judge,they still pursuing for victory.until judge officially state other are copy apple.

ahseng holy cow

seriously, recent smartphone is about evolution instead of revolution..
i wasn't impressed by S3 launch…

and by having the foxconn chairman say iphone 5 will put samsung galaxy S3 to shame will hurt apple more than praising it.. people will expect their iphone 5 will be a super smart phone…


Neither ppl was impress too when iphone5 launch last year,tadaaa……ops,its 4S…


Who cares? Windows Phone 8 is coming!
