Samsung to developer RAM chips for Apple [Mobile 88 Online (Malaysia)]

(Mobile 88 Online (Malaysia) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) According to a new report which came out last week, Samsung will be supplying Apple with with RAM chips for the upcoming iPhone 6 refresh. Despite their never-ending legal battle and aggressive marketing, business is still business. DigiTimes reports the following: Apple made a drastic move to begin expelling Samsung from its supplier list for a number of key components, including application processors, mobile RAM, NAND flash chips and batteries, starting 2013, the sources noted.

It’s worth noting that in 2013, Apple dropped Samsung from the supplier list and switched to buying mobile RAM from SK Hynix and Elpida Memory. However, neither those companies increased RAM shipments over Apple's "less than desired" prices, forcing the Cupertino to go back to their old supplier… And it’s justified too, as Samsung's scale and lead in component production makes it one of the largest makers of RAM chips for mobile devices in the world.
