Apple iPhone 6 to Come With TSMC Manufactured A8 Chips: Ditches Samsung

Posted by:

Apple might end its contract with Samsung for its next generation A8 chips that are said to feature in Apple's upcoming iPhone 6. According to the Korean publication Hankyung, Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) is likely to get the deal instead. However, the publication further says that the 60 to 70% of the A8 chips for iPhone 6 would be coming from TSMC while the remaining 30 to 40% of it would come from Samsung. Thus TSMC would get the larger chunk of the Apple deal this time.

However, Samsung has been in a good business relationship with the Apple Inc. despite the several legal battles between the two over patents. Samsung is also said to have secured the deal for the 64-bit A7 chip in the iPhone 5s. Apart from the latest updates, Samsung has already been supplying A5, the A5X, the A6, and the A6X SOCs for other iPhones and iPads.

In fact, there have been no official confirmations on who will get the contract for the A8 chips. One can thus say that Apple Inc. is currently having a hard time to choose among the two suppliers, Samsung and TSMC. Choosing between the two suppliers will be a tough choice for Apple. Even though Samsung has been successfully serving as a chip supplier for Apple's previous iPhones and iPads, the two tech giants also share a blazing rivalry between them. However, the deal is not final as of now and to talk about the next generation iPhone, it isn't expected to come out until next fall.

However, following the rumors, the handset is said to come with a 5-6 inch screen, full HD support, 64-bit A7 processor, and a 12 MP rear camera. The device would come with an internal storage capacity of up to 128GB. It would probably come with iOS 7 OS along with NFC and Fingerprint Sensor.
