The A8 processor Apple is expected to use in its next generation smartphone will still be manufactured by Samsung; however, TSMC will handle a majority of the production, according to the Korean daily Hankyung.

The paper reported on Sunday that 60-70 percent of the manufacturing for the new processor would be handled by Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. with the remainder going to Samsung.
