Source: Apple cuts back on memory chip orders from Samsung for Apple iPhone 5
Another source for Reuters says that Apple still has Samsung's name included as a vendor for memory chips although orders from Apple have been declining. Samsung has made up the shortfall by selling memory chips to its own handset business which has been soaring. Samsung's smartphone business makes up about two-thirds of the company's profit. Just the other day, Samsung announced that it has sold 20 million units of the Samsung Galaxy S III in 100 days, three times faster than its predecessor.
jury awarding Apple $1.05 billion from Samsung for patent infringement. Instead, Apple's desire not to rely on just one source for important parts has led to this search for diversification.
The Korean Economic Daily source said that Samsung's name has been removed from a list of battery suppliers for the Apple iPhone 5 as the Cupertino based firm has selected China's Amperex Technology Ltd and Japan's Panasonic Corp to deliver the power source for the 6th generation of the iconic smartphone. But the Korean tech titan is the sole source of microprocessors for both the Apple iPhone and the Apple iPad which gives Samsung some degree of leverage against Apple.
According to Morgan Stanley, Samsung should bring in $13 billion in component sales next year, resulting in $2.2 billion in operating profits.
