As you know, Huawei develops its own Kirin processors. TSMC’s company, has reportedly agreed to build chipsets for Huawei using 16nm process technology FinFET. But now it seems, Huawei decided to change the manufacturer.
The Chinese company seriously considers cooperation with Samsung, which is able to produce chips at 14nm process technology FinFET. In theory, the smaller the size of SoC, so it becomes more energy efficient. Of course, there are other factors that affect the energy efficiency, which can be explained better autonomy Apple A9 processors manufactured on 16nm process technology.
Samsung used on 14nm process for the production of Exynos 7420, which is “heart“ Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge Plus. The chipset is one of the most powerful processors in the mobile market, and if you still Huawei will sign a contract with the South Korean company, we can expect a fairly productive chips in the upcoming Huawei devices.
