Samsung's new mobile processor production client is... Qualcomm!

Furthermore, Samsung will be supplying Qualcomm chips manufactured on a 14-nanometer FinFET production process. It will take a long and difficult slab of text to explain the technology, so if you are interested what makes it special, check out the video below.
Although Qualcomm is the leading international chip maker (with the exception of MediaTek-dominated China), the company doesn't have production fabs of its own. Meanwhile, Samsung is a dominating force in RAM and NAND memory production, but its Exynos line of mobile chipsets has a very limited market presence.
Even though the two companies are competitors in a way, it looks like both can benefit extensively from their deal. Qualcomm enlists a powerful manufacturing partner that's also a long-time client, while Samsung receives a second high-profile customer after Apple and additional know-how for its chip production.

Lmao Cheating. 1.9ghz Exynos vs 2.5ghz S801. Thats600ghz lower, underclocked. If it was clocked the same as 2.5ghz, do you realise how powerful the Exynos would preform. Let's not forget about the rubbish A7 Cpu, that's been used on with the Exynos A15, which needs these A7, due to A15 being so powerful and battery hog.

Expectable, considering Apple is moving their production to TSMC... Qualcomm was just poked out, and switched places with Apple. And about that 14 nm, I think it's hardly possible for samsung to implement 14 nm before 2015/16 as they don't even have 20nm by now and even intel is struggling to deliver 14nm this year or about year and half after 22nm.

LOL. Yes. So, TSMC didn't gain anything. They gain apple, they lose qualcom and Samsung lose apple, but gain Qualcom. Which is, I think, Samsung got a better position. Apple is such a pain in the @ss, and samsung is lucky that it can get qualcom instead.

Don't do it!!! Shamesung will copy your chip design and play it off as theirs

It won't matter. They will both be using standard ARM designs, anyway. That is all Exynos is, and once Qualcomm abandons 28nm Krait, that is where they are headed. Besides, Samsung is just an ARM licensee, so they cannot copy custom ARM silicon. You need an ARM Architecture license for that.
