Economic Daily reported today that Samsung will supply Apple with A9 chips based on a 14-nanometer process node starting in 2015. The chip would go into production in 2015 and power an iPhone theoretically dubbed ther "iPhone 7" that could be released in the latter half of 2015, according to the report.
The report comes just a few weeks after another news agency reported that Apple and Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company had reached a deal for development of Apple's A series chips.
Until now, Samsung has been the exclusive manufacturer of Apple's A series processors for its iOS devices. But Apple had reportedly been reducing its chip orders to the South Korean electronics giant as it tried to reduce its dependence on its legal competitor.
Apple is also reportedly exploring a possible deal with chipmaker Globalfoundries to produce future chips.
