SEOUL Oct 5 Tech giant Samsung Electronics Co
Ltd will be the sole contract manufacturer for
Qualcomm Inc's next high-end Qualcomm Snapdragon chips,
South Korea's Electronic Times reported on Wednesday citing
The paper said Samsung will make Qualcomm's Snapdragon 830
mobile processors using 10-nanometre production technology,
adding that the South Korean firm agreed to use the processors
in half of its next update of the Galaxy S smartphone that will
launch in 2017.
Samsung said in January it was the sole manufacturer of the
predecessor Snapdragon 820 chips - a deal that some analysts
said at the time was worth more than $1 billion.
Samsung did not immediately comment on the report, and
Qualcomm could not be immediately reached for comment.
