New Apple iPhones
Even as the entire mobile industry is patiently waiting for the annual MWC event in Barcelona, we still have the new Apple iPhones leaks, rumors and news coming out on a regular basis. Just recently, the possible iPhone 8 prices got revealed apart from something to talk about the new iPhone’s camera.
And now what we know about the new Apple iPhones is that the Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company – the TSMC, will be supplying the chips for Apple’s much-talked-about iPhones in the wings. The annual releasing schedule of the new iPhones won’t be disturbed. And that is because TSMC will start shipping the A11 chips, most probably by the end of March this year.
For those who aren’t aware, the iPhone 7 and the 7 Plus are powered by the A10 fusion, that has the TSMC’s 16nm FinFET process as its base. As for the upsides of using these chips are concerned, they are both cost-effective apart from consuming lesser power too. No wonder, a company like Apple will look at such chips more seriously.
And Apple’s arch business rival, Samsung, will also bring the 10nm chipsets in its flagships. The Samsung Galaxy S8 will be running on the Exynos 9 series. This chip is based on the company’s in-house 10nm FinFET process.
As far as the Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company is concerned, they are already “risk production” of the 7nm chips. It is likely that the mass production of these particular chips will get underway from the next year, though the schedule is still unknown. But yes, the New Apple iPhones then will be certainly having these improved chips.
What’s more, the 5nm risk production has also got a time frame from early 2019.
