Foxconn Technology Group founder and chief executive Terry Gou has reportedly gone on record in stating that his company will soon begin manufacturing a television for Apple. Production has not yet begun, China Daily reports, and the electronics manufacturing giant is currently preparing its facilities for Apple’s HDTV. The site claims Gou made the comments during a press conference in Shanghai on Friday. Apple’s long rumored HDTV, or “iTV” as it is often called, will reportedly look much like the company’s current LED Cinema Display. It is said to feature an aluminum casing, iOS, voice-powered remote control features courtesy of Siri, and an iSight camera for FaceTime video chats.Â Earlier reports claim that the device will debut later this year, though another recent report suggests thatÂ it might not launch until 2014.
UPDATE: Foxconn denied the report in a statement given to The Next Web. “Any reports that Foxconn confirmed that it is preparing to produce a specific product for any customer are not accurate,” a spokesperson for the company said.
