Who will make the chips for the flagships of the era of 5G?


The leaders of the smartphone market is widely known. It is primarily the company Samsung, Apple and Huawei. Each of them committed not only make your device functional but also to complement their most productive “iron”. Moreover, these companies also produce their own chipsets. But the most widely known hardware platform Qualcomm Snapdragon, the future which now will be discussed.

With reference to the message “familiar with the topic of people”, it is noted that Qualcomm, presumably, will once again be working with TSMC, not Samsung, over production of their chipset lineup, the Snapdragon 800, which will be made in accordance with the 7-nanometer technological process. More detail next post on this subject was considered by the Ro (Ro) on the resource page gsmarena.com with reference to digitimes.com.

This was reported for the second time and there is an important reason to believe this rumor is TSMC was for many years a partner of Qualcomm as long as the chip maker not chose Samsung as their partner for the production of 14-nanometer and 10-nanometer chips.

TSMC and Qualcomm became partners in 2006 and worked together on a production of 65-nanometer chipsets. It may be that Qualcomm a few months earlier, Samsung sells the 7-nanometer process technology FinFET.

Production capacity will be in operation by the end of this year and it is also expected that TSMC will produce for Qualcomm and 5G modems. Earlier it was reported that TSMC is ready to the large demand for components manufactured in accordance with the 7-nanometer technological process, by various companies.

Thus, Qualcomm will not be the only chip maker that will be produced components in accordance with the 7-nanometer technology FinFET. Previously, MediaTek has officially announced a 5G modem line Helio M70, manufactured in partnership with TSMC, the production of which will start in early 2019. Sources indicate that the chipset from Huawei Kirin will also be based on this technology.
