There have been various rumors about who would be making the A9 processor for Apple’s new iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus, with both Samsung and TSMC rumored tobe building the chips for Apple.
According to a recent report, Samsung will produce the A9 chips for the iPhone 6S and 6S plus handsets.
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.
Apple is expected to launch their new iPhone 6S and 6S Plus smartphones around September of this year.
These new iPhones are said to come with the same design as the existing handsets, although as well as new processors they are expected to come with more ram, improved cameras and more.
