'iPhone 5 production line' images emerge

Pictures show Wintek workers handling display components

A photograph that allegedly shows a production line at iPhone component supplier Wintek has emerged on the web.

The workers pictured in the snaps, which were discovered by Vietnamese website Tinhte, appear to be handling display components and it is claimed that the parts in question belong to the iPhone 5.

Though the pictures don't show any components close up, there are one or two details that can be made out which would appear to be consistent with other reports we've heard about the iPhone 5.
