7nm A12 Chip Can Prove Clincher for Apple’s 2018 iPhones

According to supply chain sources, many other smartphone companies may not use sub-10nm chips for some time yet.

Apple’s technology lead may prevail over the next year as well. From the reports of Digitimes, it is found that four major chipmakers have delayed or held plans to offer their own 7nm process to the Android brand.

The report says, “With sub-10nm node manufacturing requiring huge [capital investment], a number of foundries have slowed down their investment pace while fabless chipmakers stick with 14/12nm products for cost reasons […]

Both Qualcomm and MediaTek are believed to have postponed the launch of their 7nm chip solutions to 2019 from the previously-planned 2018, according to the source […]

UMC has shifted its investment focus to mature and specialty process nodes, while Globalfoundries has decided to put its 7nm FinFET program on hold indefinitely.”

The report indicates that only TSMC (Apple chipmaker) can manufacture a 7nm process. On the other hand, archrival Samsung has shown some interests in developing its own 7nm process to win back some of Apple’s A-series chip business.

Notably, Apple used to divide its chip orders between Samsung and TSMC. Since the Taiwanese chipmaker has defeated Samsung to a 10nm process, it has become Apple’s only supplier for the last two years.

Earlier, Macworld predicted that 7nm process would be the key reason behind faster 2018 iPhones; faster than iPhone X.
