Qualcomm and Samsung have been working together for a while on mobile processors but it looks like the partnership could be coming to an end.
According to a recent report by Fudzilla, Qualcomm will be using TSMC and not Samsung to produce its next generation 7nm processors.
This is bad news for Samsung as the company already lost its contract with Apple to make the iPhone application processors and now Qualcomm will be using someone else for its next generation processor.
Samsung’s foundry business is a profitable part of the company, it had sales of $4.44 billion last year and around 40 percent of this was from Qualcomm.
So it looks like TSMC will be making these new 7nm processors for Qualcomm, of course none of this has been confirmed by any of the company’s involved as yet.
