A rare video inside Apple manufacturer Foxconn’s Zhengzhou plant has surfaced, showing Foxconn CEO and a reporter from Chinese news organisation iFeng touring the factory’s iPhone assembly line.

The Chinese video gives a glimpse into the much-maligned manufacture’s production floor and a birds eye view from the Foxconn CEO’s helicopter.

According to The Next web, Gou references several interesting details about the factory, primarily that it covers the largest area, around 5.6 square kilometres, of any other manufacturing plants in Zhengzhou, with the largest living area for its 115,000 workers.

Gou also says that the parameter around the site, which he refers to as a ‘wasteland’, is being reserved for future expansion of the plant.

“The area of the factory that Gou shows off is dedicated to the production of the iPhone 4S and its display. The reporter shows off the iPhone 4S frame and Gou says that ‘his’ factory is better than any of the production in Japan, Germany, the US and elsewhere. They then move on to the motherboards, where Gou says that one section of the parts runs some 148 metres. The motherboard area produces 10,000 units a day.”
