iPhone 7 Chip To Be Produced at Global Foundries In Malta?
It could very well be according to an article I just read. How exciting is THAT? And Samsung is involved (huh? I thought they were competitors)
Right before viewing the latest cat video, I happened to be reading something intelligent from Forbes.com. They were mentioning that the iPhone 7 is past the "dream stage" and they are planning on production in one of the two plants where Samsung does business
According to the article:
Samsung has two main fabrication plants, in South Korean and in Austin, Texas. Given Apple’s push for ‘made in America’ I would expect much of the A9 fabrication to go to the Lone Star State (or Samsung’s partner, Global Foundries, and its facility in Saratoga Springs NY).
This is a guess on the author's part, which is why I put the title of my blog in the form of a question, but it does make sense. There have been rumors to this effect before.
Actually, I am going to be hosting an event there on Friday. I will see what I can find out (although I'm sure everything is held close to the chest there, but you never know)
One final thought. It is interesting that Samsung is making the chips for their competitor?. One these days, I bet you dollars to donuts that we'll find out McDonalds supplies the meat to Burger King.
