According to The Investor, Samsung will produce chips for Apple's upcoming iPhones in the year 2018.

KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says all three of Apple's upcoming iPhone models - the OLED iPhone, and the 4.7- and 5.5-inch LCD-packing versions - will come in 64-gigabyte and 256-gigabyte storage configurations.

SAMSUNG WILL REPORTEDLY end a five-year hiatus and return to build chips for Apple's iPhone in 2018. This definitely is a good news for the company since it lost the deal for the Snapdragon 845 to TSMC. TSMC, interestingly, now manufactures the 10nm A11 chip which Apple now uses.

According to news reports on July 18, Samsung recently purchased extreme ultra violet lithography machines, the most advanced chip manufacturing equipment, to produce seven-nanometer mobile processors exclusively for iPhone.

Instead, the bank said, Apple's highest-end iPhone will launch on time but will only be available in limited quantities at first.

TSMC won't be dumped altogether, though, with the Herald noting that Samsung likely will split production Taiwanese firm. The company has even bought some extreme UV lithography machines recently, which will be needed in the making of Apple's 7nm processors.
