Samsung and TSMC will share orders for smaller next generation Apple A-series processors, according to a DigiTimes report.

Samsung is said to have signed a contract to produce the processors for 2015 using a 14/16nm FinFET process.

Samsung will use its 14nm FinFET process to manufacture a portion of the A-series chips for Apple's 2015 iPhone series, and the remainder of the chips will be built using TSMC's 16nm FinFET technology, the sources indicated. TSMC should land 60-70% of Apple's total 14/16nm chip orders, with the remaining 30-40% to be taken over by Samsung, the sources said.

The site also reports that TSMC will be the main foundry for the 20nm A-series chips that Apple will use in its 2014 devices. It's possible that TSMC and Samsung will equally share orders for the 2014 chips, according to their sources.

As long as we have twice the performance and stays that way along with 4", I'll buy the next after 5s until the end!
