Apple is working on iPhone 12 which is expected to launch this fall. Ever since the iPhone 11 series of smartphones were launched, we have been seeing quite a lot of leaks and speculations around the possible iPhone 12 with notch-less display and lot others.
But it turns out Apple still did not get enough of the notch. Regardless of that, it appears that Apple’s A14 chipset that comes packed inside iPhone 12 will be the most powerful and efficient smartphone chip we have seen. The information is gathered during a TSMC earnings call.
Apple’s A14 Chip
The reports from PhoneArena suggest that TSMC confirmed that the 5nm chips will be making their way into the smartphones soon. The company reportedly said that these chipsets will contribute to the TSMC’s revenue this fall. By that statement, we can get a clear hint at the iPhone 12 packing in 5nm chipset.
Currently, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 865+ is the fastest chipset that touches 3 GHz barriers, but it was built on a 7 nm manufacturing process, the same as the last year’s A13. But we are talking 5nm here. According to TSMC,
The chipset offers 15% faster performace with 30% lower consumption when compared to its 7nm process.
Now, this means, Apple’s A14 chipset is again going to be the most powerful mobile chipset something which Apple never fails to mention during its launch event. According to Apple analyst Kuo, Apple might not ship the AirPods along with the upcoming iPhones.
Furthermore, the new reports from Barclays also claim that the company may not also include a power adapter too. Now, this might result in the cheapest Apple Flagship in years as it may start at USD 549. From where I see it, Apple is known for making bold moves that will be followed by other brands.
