Foxconn employees working on Apple products Apple

Apple could be weeks away from starting production on the iPhone 6.

That's according to the Commercial Times (Chinese language), which Reuters translated and reported.

Apple's manufacturing partner Pegatron is opening up new factory space and recruiting workers to build the iPhone 6, according to the report. The production would begin in the second quarter, the newspaper said, citing unnamed sources.

CNET contacted Apple for comment, and we'll update the story when the company responds.

Pegatron won't be the only manufacturer of Apple's flagship phone. The Commercial Times said Hon Hai Precision Industry, also known as Foxconn, would be the primary manufacturer of the phone.

Not much is known about the iPhone 6, although it is widely believed to have a larger display.
