iPhone 5 processor will be based on Samsung's Quad-core Exynos 4

5 July, 2012 iPhone 5



Digitimes reports that the new Apple iPhone (aka iPhone 5) will pack Qualcomm's quad-core chipset for the holiday shopping season, As we reported Samsung will manufacture the chips for Qualcomm, The quad-core APQ8064A is a monster chipset, since it integrates multimode LTE radio, and is built on the 28nm process too.

It isn't exactly a revelation that Apple might place such a chip in its iPhone 5, since we heard rumors that Cupertino's engineers are testing the next generation A6 with four processor cores at the TSMC foundry earlier this year.




Actually we last heard that Samsung will be producing the A6, and now the sources confirm that this quad-core A6 is none other, but modified quad-core Exynos 4 series, which is already running in the international version of the Samsung Galaxy S III. This means a 32nm HKMG package made in Samsung's Austin, Texas factory a pretty powerful combination.
