The Korean Economic Daily reported that Apple has drastically reduced the orders for the components of the iPhone 5 from Samsung in the primary production run. LG Display, and other Japanese and Chinese companies, including Sanyo are reported to be the suppliers of the critical components of the iPhone 5.
Rumours in the market suggest that the demand of Apple’s iPhone 5 will exceed the supply of the smartphone. Leaked information suggests that Apple is planning to incorporate the technology of Nano-Sims. ifun.de already claims that German retail stores have received stock of iPhone 5 SIM cards.
