According to the latest news, Samsung would announce different models of CPU for Galaxy S IV in different regions. It is reported that Samsung Galaxy S IV would use Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 600 in the United States, and a Samsung Exynos 5 Octa in Europe and other places of the world where LTE is not that widespread, according to a recent JPMorgan note. For the Snapdragon 600, Samsung might be placing orders with TSMC, the foundry that uses its 28nm process to make Qualcomm’s chip. All this might be of a big benefit to TSMC and one more reason why the company expects stronger than usual Q1 revenue. Of course, for the detailed specs of Samsung Galaxy S IV, we still need to wait for the March 14th Samsung Galaxy event.
