Next Generation iPhone 5S photographed in Foxconn factory!

Alleged photos of the next generation iPhone, taken inside a Foxconn factory have been posted on Chinese tech sites. Could this be the iPhone 5s?

Earlier today a rumour appeared on Sina Weibo claiming that the both the iPhone 5S and iPhone 6 had been spotted at by a supplier. Unsurprisingly the rumour confirmed that the iPhone 5S appeared physically identical to the current iPhone 5, where as the iPhone 6 sports a 5-inch display, longer body and thinner profile.

Hot on the heels of this breaking news though are these purported photos of the next generation iPhone caught on camera write under the nose of the normally security conscious Foxconn!

As well as giving us a good look at the iPhone 5S in various stages of production, we also get an unusually good look at the inside of the Foxconn factory and see a group of workers in clean suits casually relaxing.

Claims that these are photos of the iPhone 5S have been received with mixed feelings, with many Chinese iFans claiming that this could actually be the assembly line of iPhone 5 knock-offs!

What do you think? Are these photos of the iPhone 5S?

    I’ve found these pictures a few days ago but honestly, this is clearly a chinese clone. After a quick look at the nasty inside components, I’ve decided to not publish these pictures…

    These are photo’s of the replica productions. You can see it when you look at the display sensors like the proximity sensor. The real Iphone models have one circle and most of the fake ones have some sort of little stripe. It’s not something they would have so change for the next generation Iphone, Next to that, the internals don’t look like Apple to…

      Cleary. Moreover, this battery is often used for Chinese clones …

          I mean “I don’t know” haha. But indeed like Jim said: A lot of those components are similar to Goophone, KiPhone, ZoPhone, Gooapple, FlyFox, Hero phones.

    If these are clones, I’d be interested in a ~4.5/5 inch iPhone clone!

    The battery looks to be a non-user servicable one, which I haven’t seen on any of the recent replicas (Goophone, KiPhone, ZoPhone, Gooapple, FlyFox, Hero, etc).

      Jiayu G5 is an iPhone 5 lookalike with a 4.5-inch display. GooPhone i5 has a non removable battery.

    Looks like a Thunderbird I5, don’t think it is the real IPhone 5, but hey, we’re talking about apple, so everything is possible 😀

    “GooPhone i5 has a non removable battery.”

    That will help me weed out the fakes! There are so many phones on ebay/wholesale sites being touted as ‘Goophone i5’ some of them don’t even run android…
