An iPhone photo with an unusual mention has been revealed. It could be an iPhone model intended for the Brazilian market.
Are the first iPhone units about to leave the new Foxconn production unit in Brazil? This is what one might believe following the revelation of this photo of an iPhone model by the Brazilian site MacMagazine. Particularity of this, the new mention Designed by Apple in California Industria Brasileira. During the negotiations between Foxconn and the Brazilian government, we remember that the latter had forced the assembler to place the mention "Industria Brasileira". This was one of the big conditions for Foxconn to set up its new Jundiai factory (a town not far from Sao Paulo).
Condition accepts without flinching too much from Foxconn and Apple who take advantage of the advantage of being able to reach the North American continent more quickly and at lower costs, without counting on the fact that the customs duties imposed on the sale of product in Latin America are considerably related. Note, however, that the labor force in Brazil is more expensive than in China but that the economic advantages offset the increase in production costs.
During the formalization of Foxconn's arrival in Brazil, the Brazilian president said that Foxconn could invest $ 300 million or go up to $ 12 billion for over a period of five to six years.
We discuss it on the forum.
