Chipworks has determined that the new A7 processor in the iPhone 5s is made by Samsung.

We have confirmed through early analysis that the device is fabricated at Samsung’s Foundry and we will confirm process type and node later today as analysis continues. That being said, we suspect we will see Samsungs 28 nm Hi K metal Gate (HKMG) being used. We have observed this same process in the Samsung Exynos Application processor used in the Galaxy S IV. Our engineers will be deprocessing the Apple A7 as soon as they can to confirm this or to provide different information.

Last time I looked back at samsucks progress they never won a J.D. Powers awards ROFL that's all you galasheeps who keep relying on big assed s4's yet you get butthurt acting like the loser wins! Keep trying all you want, you can't even use gold or aluminum to avoid burning to make your galas hit be better, not to mention the copying every 3 months per year.

Apple stocks are dropping. Poor Apple can't even afford to fabricate their own chips. They have to suck K-Pop d!cks to have their chips done. Apple sucks... Innovation Failed. 70% of the world knows it, 20% are still in denial and 10% are just blind followers who will eat anything that comes out of Apple's ass.

Your mind is falling! Can't even look back at WWDC charts because you use wannabe ga'lag'xy, poor homeless son of a ass, how else does mobile companies get their material, 25% of people across the globe treat apple different just because of jobs' death, 15% switch to galacrap because of bigger screen, 60% understand apple and their specs! Go back to drinking your mothers milk so you can have the "blow" your name came from and to have the balls to watch WWDC!

Once Apple leaves Samsung for TSMC, Samsung will start using the same chips every year.
