Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chip by.
Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) is known for making the A11 Bionic chip used on the Apple iPhone X. But since last two years chipsets deployed in high-end Android smartphones, the Snapdragon 820 and the Snapdragon 835 were manufactured by Samsung.
A few weeks ago, Samsung confirmed that it would fabricate the Snapdragon 845 chipset on its 10nm LPP process. And now, a new report by Nikkei claims that TSMC is set to gain Qualcomm’s modem and core processor orders next year.
The report quotes chip industry executives as saying, “Qualcomm is engaging TSMC to roll out a modem chip very soon in the first half of 2018 and TSMC will manufacture the mobile giant’s upcoming flagship Snapdragon processor, known as Snapdragon 855, before the end of next year.”
It notes that the competition is getting tough in the semiconductor business as features like artificial intelligence (AI) will be vital to the success of the mobile processor. Though this is not the first time TSMC has been manufacturing mobile processors for Qualcomm. The Snapdragon 808 and 810 were both made by the Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company.
