The new iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are expected to launch in September and according to a recent report, TSMC will start manufacturing the new Apple A11 processor for the handsets next month.
The news comes in a report from Digitimes and also the Economic Daily News from China who have said that production will start next month.
Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) will begin volume production of Apple’s A11 chips in April and will prepare a capacity for production of 50 million units of the chip before July, according to a Chinese-language Economic Daily News (EDN) report.
The A11 chips, which will power the upcoming iPhone series slated for launch in September 2017, will be built on a 10 nm FinFET process and packed with a wafer-level integrated fan-out (InFO) packaging technology, said the report.
We are expecting to see three different iPhone 8 handsets in September, a 4.7 inch model and two 5.8 inch models, one with an AMOLED display.
