Samesung has proven itself to be a good components manufacturer for Apple, as long as Apple's engineering teams provide the design expertise.The A7 remains unbeaten almost twelve months after its launch, an extraordinary testimony to Aople's engineers. Meanwhile, the poorly coded, error-ridden Exynos Octa series attests to Samesung's need for direction from technology leaders.
If we wait, from TSMC to go to 2nm process, we will stay with the same old hardware until 2020 rebranding it for new. For graphics ( NVIDIA AND AMD) is is time for new GPUS ( 2nm) with the deliberately delays from TSMC this is not going to happen. SO it will be best for NVIDIA and AMD to go also to globalfoundries and samsung venture.
What a shame.
Once again, Apple is proving to be nothing more than a greedy packaging and marketing company with double standards.
Apple can dream all they want but without the actual implementation technology that can turn dreams into reality, it's nothing but air. The real technology and innovation is at the implementation level, not at marketing and dreaming/specification level (or 'design' that clueless fans wrongly call it).
AmateurHistorian, 17 Jul 2014When is Intel going to get in the game. Intel have more fabs and better tech then anybody else.Yup, my thoughts exactly... BUT, even if they have the best process, ARM's got an arm's length ( pun intended ) headstart on the architecture side for extremely low power devices. Intel has always been all about the high-end, high-margin. Maybe its just not their cup of tea.
phoenix31121, 17 Jul 2014apple is a fruit. go back to primary school and learn the basicsahhh the sweet sound of desperation!!music to my ears!!!!

On top remained Samsung, with 31.2% of the world-wide smartphone market at the end of the first quarter. "
Yes... ofc they'll just spit at a third of a market worth dozens if not hundreds of billions of $. Good stuff you're smokin' mate, stop puffing and pass it around! :)
It shows a clear sign that Sammy will withdraw from smartphone business very soon and focusing solely on components making such as display, CPU chips, RAM, camera module,battery, ...etc.
Sammy has poor sale in all Galaxy devices despite spending millions of advertising and flooding the market with all kind of plastic junks.
o ok okk ooook .bro sammy might just rake in the buck on good chips and apple on quality phones . if they agree after a fight thats ok , who am i to care
Apple strategies are so self inflicting!
Does it has no honor?
cant live without Samsung heh Apple! yup don't bite the hands that feeds you.

I agree with you but samsung isnt rival company...?? think this way, why dont they outsource sapphire glass production instead they can produce chip by their own since its integral part of it ... This can evaluate real potential of company.... Hope it helps
Barie boy, 17 Jul 2014I dont understand why big company like apple is keep licking samsung feet... when they can pro... moreIts called outsourcing. I thought it was strange for many large companies to rely on other companies to build parts for them too. But as I grew older, I realized that majority of tech companies does not manufacturer all of the stuff that they put out of the market today. If Apple were to manufacture everything themselves, their innovation is probably limited, and would be slow to implement into their products, as they have to plan or build another whole new factory just to produce new hardware for their next upcoming hardware.
If apple was to produce all the components of their phones, the only thing we could get is Icrapple.
We pay to use your technologies... while we sue you over a tiny bit of similarities of what you do with what we do.
Cheapest isn't always best ...... so Sammy may yet get to make all that money it got fined back from Apple - LOL
Looks like Samsung to deal with the Devil. Dont do it Apple will screw you over. As always.
Android Man, 17 Jul 2014absolutley stupid of Samsung to jump into this agreement. Apple keep sueing Samsung for differ... moreActually, its like this:
Apple sells lots of phones = Samsung selling lots of chips = win.
Samsung sells lots of phones = win.
Qualcomm sells lots of chips = Samsung selling lots of chips = win.
Its win all the way for Samsung.
