  • Samsung to manufacture A12 chipset for Apple iPhones

The report comes from Korean Media, and The Investor, which is quoting news reports based on industry sources. OLED deal between Samsung and Apple paved the way for Samsung to manufacture the chipsets.

The Herald, which relied on unnamed sources, reported that Samsung's chances at producing iPhone chips again picked up in June when Kwon Oh-hyun, one of Samsung's three co-chief executives who is in charge of chips among other things, visited the Apple headquarters in California last month. Earlier, Apple awarded exclusive production right of SoC to the Samsung's major rival Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC). Samsung announced in March that it would purchase specialized machines, reportedly in an attempt to produce seven-nanometer processors for the iPhone and regain Apple's business.

Samsung will make 7nm chips for Apple's 2018 iPhone, the report notes, which should be even faster and more energy efficient than the 10nm chips that power this year's flagship handsets, including the iPhone 8.

Samsung is now the only OLED display supplier for the iPhone, with the iPhone 8 expected to be the first iPhone in Apple's history to feature OLED screen technology.

All the iPhones from next year will feature OLED displays which will be supplied by Samsung; Apple has placed an order of between 70 and 92 million OLED displays for the new iPhone 8. This might delay the iPhone 8. Reports have indicated the iPhone 8 will come with a bezel-less OLED display, and 3D face scanning for unlocking the device. However, Apple iPhone 8 will have the highest screen to body ratio ever seen on a smartphone. From the report, the 2017 model will be valued at about $300 less the price of iPhone 8, which should be a decent price tag. A recent iPhone 8 design on Forbes, also reveals a vertically stacked camera, instead of the horizontal one seen in the iPhone 7 Plus.
