Samsung signs huge deals to provide RAM chips for the iPhone 6S and the LG G4

As we all know, Samsung is one of the leading designers and producers of mobile components and chipsets, and around two months ago, it started mass producing LP-DDR4 RAM chips. Now, KoreanTimes is claiming that Samsung has managed to close two multibillion deals to provide RAM chips to Apple and LG, and we believe that those could be the LP-DDR4 ones, which will also be featured in Samsung’s upcoming high-end smartphones such as the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge.

One industry source close to the matter said, “Under the agreement, Samsung will start providing LG Electronics with 100 percent mobile DRAM chips it needs for LG G4 smartphone, which will be unveiled in April. Also, Samsung will handle at least half of the amount that Apple needs for its new iPhone ― tentatively named iPhone 6S.” He also said that the order is valid for one year and Apple might increase the order depending upon the situation. Apparently, Samsung doesn’t have any problem in “meeting growing demand for advanced mobile DRAM chips.”

This is bad news for SK Hynix as its mainstream DRAM chips are made using 25nm technology while Samsung’s newest ones are built using 20nm technology. Hwang Joon-ho at KDB-Daewoo Securities said, “This is really a huge deal. This means Samsung’s chip business is booming riding high on its technologies that are far ahead of its rivals.

It’s good to see that Samsung at least are still booming in terms of their TV industry, mobile processor industry, RAM/storage industry. They still need to get their game going again in the mobile department before they start losing more money and customers. They’re still being played by Apple and other mobile device manufacturers.

Well I think what he is referring to, is that Samsung is supplying their biggest competitors with smartphone parts at the same time as they are putting them in their own. Which is true, but that doesn’t mean it’s a bad thing. There are only a very few companies that can just about supply every material they use, every part they use, their own marketing expertise (in Award Winning Samsung Worldwide Marketing), builds freighters to ship in, does all it’s own shipping and setting up of distribution channels, etc and so forth, the way Samsung does! Because what that means… Read more »
