For the Snapdragon 600, Samsung might be placing orders with TSMC, the foundry that uses its 28nm process to make Qualcomm’s chip. All this might be of a big benefit to TSMC and one more reason why the company expects stronger than usual Q1 revenue.
Overall, all this sounds very logical. It actually aligns well with earlier duelling rumors about the S IV using either the Exynos 5 Octa or Snapdragon 600 - it’d just use both, choosing one for particular markets. That also happens to be the strategy Samsung has already used with the Galaxy S III.
We’ll know for sure in just two weeks on March 14th when Samsung is set to unveil the Galaxy S IV in an event in New York City. And right below is the latest teaser, take a look.
