Eager to put the Galaxy Note 7 fiasco behind, Samsung is streaming ahead with the mass fabrication of its next-gen chip which will be the heart of its next flagship.
In an industry first, South Korean electronics tech giant, Samsung Electronics Co Ltd has stated that it has started the mass production of its chips using 10 nanometre technology.
Furthermore, the company’s statement also disclosed that the chips produced by this technology will feature in devices coming out next year.
Earlier this month, South Korea’s Electronic Times had reported that Samsung will be Qualcomm Inc.’s sole contract manufacturer for its high-end Snapdragon 830 chips which will be produced using the 10 nanometre production technology.
It is very likely that these processors will be part of Samsung’s next flagship smartphone, which is scheduled to be launched in early 2017.
