Previously it was believed that Qualcomm would split orders
Qualcomm does not seem to want to produce the upcoming Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 SoC at Samsung factories.
Previously, the company said that it was interested in diversifying production, hinting that against the backdrop of Samsung's success in mastering new technological processes, the company could again begin ordering flagship platforms from the Korean giant. Now it is reported that Qualcomm has decided to give all orders for Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 again only to TSMC.
Qualcomm has reportedly decided not to rely on Samsung due to its inconsistent die yield and conservative expansion strategy, whatever that means.
However, the launch of mass production of Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 is still quite far away, so Qualcomm boards may well change.
