Samsung allegedly back in Apple's supplier list, tipped to provide RAM for the iPhone 6
One of the latest iPhone 6-related rumors, for example, claims that Apple has once turned to Samsung for hardware parts – this time, Sammy is said to be providing a great portion of the RAM chips for Cupertino's next flagship, which might or might not come with 1GB of random-access memory aboard.
It will be filling the gap that SK Hynix and Elpida Memory, two of Apple's major RAM suppliers, left after they did not agree to increase the RAM production, which will provide a steady supply of memory for the iPhone 6. The reason for SK Hynix' and Elpida Memory's alleged reluctance to do so was due to the low and unsatisfactory buyout prices that Apple's been offering for the RAM chips. So, Samsung reportedly had to intervene and get involved in the RAM supplement.
