Korean report supports KGI prediction that Samsung will make 75% of A9 chips for next iPhone

samsung-Xian-fab.

Korean news site MK Business News (via Reuters) is reporting that Samsung will make 75% of the A9 chip for the next iPhone. This matches an earlier detailed prediction by KGI Research, which stated that the balance of the chips would be made by Global Foundry, and is in line with a statement by Samsung which last year confirmed it as a major supplier of the new chip.

The Samsung-fabbed chips will, says the report, be made in the USA … 

MK Business News says that Samsung will make the chips in its plant in Austin, Texas. It does, however, refer to the next iPhone as the iPhone 7, when it will almost certainly be the iPhone 6s.

The earlier KGI note suggested that Apple will be diversifying its chip production, with Samsung, TSMC, Global Foundry, Qualcomm and Intel all included in the mix. Samsung is reportedly making all the S1 chips for the first-generation Apple Watch, while TSMC is slated to pick up the S2 chips for the next-generation of Apple’s first wearable.

‘The iPhone 6 Effect’ helping boost Asian economies by as much as 8.6 percent, say analysts

components

Component orders by Apple for the iPhone 6 are a significant factor in the current thriving state of a number of Asian economies, say analysts and government officials cited by the WSJ.

Analysts expect companies from Taiwan, Japan and South Korea that supplied earlier versions of the iPhone to produce key components like displays, camera lenses and microprocessors. Already, some of those companies are announcing increased earnings or forecasts, and economists and analysts are talking about an Apple effect on whole sectors and economies …

A government official in Japan estimated that component orders for the iPhone 6 could boost quarterly demand for the country’s electronics exports “by 5 percent.” Taiwan’s industrial production in June was up 8.6 percent year-on-year, a rise some analysts attribute to supplies to Apple.

“The jump of the output of semiconductors is 100% related to the iPhone launch,” said Masterlink Investment Advisory economist Anita Hsu.

It’s been reported that Apple has placed orders for a record number of iPhones for production this year, the WSJ suggesting 70-80M units by the end of the year, in contrast to 50-60M for the iPhone 5s and 5c combined last year.
