A11 Chip Production For Upcoming iPhone 8 Will Begin In April: Apple is going to release its three smartphones in this year including iPhone 7s, iPhone 7 Plus and iPhone 8. From the three sets, the iPhone 8 will come with many new features that would make it different from the rest of the smartphone. Although all the smartphones will have the new A11 chip which will be faster and more energy efficient.
Apple has given the responsibility of production of its A11 Soc to Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) which will be present in upcoming iPhones according to the report of Economics Daily News.
Apple iPhone 8 NEWS Updates:
In iPhone 7, A10 fusion chip is present that has two higher power cores and two lower-power cores. Although there are no details available about the design of A11 chip but some reports claim that it is fabricated using the 10nm process. The less nanometer has less space between transistors and thus it has better efficiency and gives better performance.
The production of the A11 chip will begin in April 2017 by TSMC. The company will manufacture about 50 million units of the chip which has the target to complete before July 2017 and before the end of the year, 100 million units of the A11 chip will be manufactured. TSMC will be the sole supplier of the A11 chip. The A10 SoC was also exclusively manufactured by the TSMC.
The report also suggested that the A11 chips are built by the coming by using 10nm FinFET process packing with a ‘wafer-level integrated fan out’ technology. However, it is not disclosed that whether A11 chip will be another fusion design or not.
The upcoming iPhone 8 will be a major upgrade over its previous iPhone 7 featuring the A11 chip, bezel-less glass body, OLED display integrated with the fingerprint sensor, stainless steel chassis design, 3Dfront camera, wireless charging, improve water and dust resistance and much more.
