    Default Apple's Next Generation iPhone A9 Chip to be Produced by Samsung


    A recent report from Bloomberg is claiming that Apple competitor Samsung, will be manufacturing A9 chips for Apple’s next generation iPhone (and possibly other products). Previous rumors talked about how the last two companies being considered to produce the chips were Korean-based company Samsung and Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC). According to Bloomberg,

    Samsung will start making Apple A9 processor chips at its Giheung plant in South Korea, the people said, asking not to be identified because the contract hasn’t been discussed publicly. Additional orders will go to Samsung’s partner Globalfoundries Inc., according to another person familiar with the arrangement.
    The Cupertino-based company signed a deal with TSMC back in 2013 to make their iPhone chips and the Taiwanese company did the bulk of the chip orders in the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus last year. But Apple still used Samsung to produce part of their 20-nanometer A8 and A8X chips for their current flagship device and iPad devices.

    It has also been said that the Korean company will be producing DRAM modules for the Cupertino-based company’s A9 as well. This means that many main iPhone parts will be produced by Samsung.

    Apple is the brain Samsung the hands. Samsung is not behind the engineering of Apple's chip just a manufacturer. So the fact is Samsung must like getting that money because they've been making chips for Apple for ages maybe get a bit of the money back from the lawsuit

    Does this mean we can expect Samsung to come out with their own A9 chip, but Samsung is going to call theirs something totally different..... The 9A chip.
