New rumor from the supply chain says that Apple has cut memory chip orders from Samsung.
Apple won against Samsung in the huge patent and design dispute. Samsung has to pay a hefty sum and faces sales bans. Now Korean Economic Daily (via Reuters) reports that Apple has dropped Samsung as memory chip provider for the iPhone 5.
Apple is supposed to source memory chips for the iPhone 5 from Toshiba, Elpida Memory and SK Hynix.
This move does not have implications for iPhone customers.
In another iPhone 5 chip related news, Audience Inc has informed that Apple is likely not using their chips in the new iPhone 5. Audience chip technology has been in the iPhone since 2008. Audience chips are used to filter background noise.
The new iPhone 5 will be announced on September 12. The iPhone 5 sales are then to begin September 21. Rumored features of the new iPhone 5 include a larger screen, A6 CPU, iOS 6, small dock connector and 4G LTE. The overall design would not change dramatically. The backside material is not glass anymore as Apple introduces a unibody design. The rumors also say that the iPhone 5 is very thin.
