iPhone 6S: Samsung set to produce bulk of processors

Apple’s iPhone 6S plans are starting to become clearer, after a new report claimed that Samsung would be producing roughly three quarters of the processors required for the next–generation handset.

The A9 chip is set to supersede the current A8 processor found in the iPhone and iPhone 6 Plus, as well as the snappier A8X, which keeps things ticking in the iPad Air 2.

Previous rumours had suggested that Samsung would be splitting the processor load with Taiwan Semiconductor.

But now it seems the Korean firm, still in litigation with Apple in the US regarding a number of breached patents, will take on 75% of Apple’s order at its dedicated plant in Austin, Texas.

Neither Samsung or Apple were willing to comment on the story.

Recent rumours have suggested the iPhone 6S will feature an improved camera and boosted internal specs, but retain the current design of the iPhone 6.
