Samsung and Qualcomm are currently competing with each other on their smartphone processors, and not it would appear that Samsung is actually going to help its rival produce their 28nm Snapdragon S4 SoC.
Qualcomm’s current processors are made by Taiwan’s TSMC, who are unable to keep up with the demand for the S4, so Qualcomm have looked for other companies to help meet the demand for their latest flagship processor.
As well as Samsung United Microelectronics (UMC) will also be producing the S4 SoC’s for Qualcomm, we wonder if a total of three different manufacturers will be able to produce enough of the chips to keep up with the demand.
It shouldn’t really come as a surprise that Samsung is willing to produce the S4 for Qualcomm, as they actually use the processor in their US version of the Samsung Galaxy S III, the international version of the device uses their own quad core Exynos processor.
