Samsung's A7 chip may be inside Apple iPhone5S
Washington: Recent findings by a Japanese firm have reportedly pointed to an evidence of the potential use of Samsung's A7 processor in Apple's latest iPhone5S.

Earlier Chipworks' analysis had also pointed to a chip-level relationship between the two tech companies.

However, after a thorough dissection of the iPhone 5S by Nikkei Electronics, the team found a Samsung manufactured A7 processor inside the phone, Cnet reports.

According to the report, the A7 is Apple's newest processor that is used in the iPhone 5S, iPad Air, and iPad Mini Retina and is the first 64-bit processor to be used in a consumer smartphone.

Nikkei Electronics said that the A7 is built on Samsung's 28-nanometer manufacturing process, which is more advanced than the 32-nanometer Samsung process used for the older A6 chip.

Meanwhile, a source familiar with global contract manufacturing relationships, revealed that Apple had been working with TSMC (Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company), the largest chip contract manufacturer in the world and Globalfoundries could also be a potential source of manufacturing, the report added.
