This may sound surprising, Samsung, one of Qualcomm's main competitors in the business of the mobile silicon with its Exynos Mobile chips, is going to help its rival to produce the 28nm Snapdragon S4 SoC.

The reason for this is that Qualcomm's current manufacturing partner, Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing, better known as TSMC, can't keep up with the demand. As a result, Qualcomm has reached out to the biggest players in the business for help United Microelectronics (UMC) and Samsung.



UMC is said to start producing the 28nm Snapdragon S4 chips in Q4 of this at the very earliest. However, it's unknown when Samsung will chime in and start the manufacturing process.
