Apple Orders 50 Million NAND Chips from Samsung, Others get Shafted
Samsung has decided to significantly reduce its supply of NAND flash chips to many of its customers in favor of being able to fulfill an order of 50 million it just received from Apple.
These NAND chips are 8 GB-equivalent and will be primarily used in the iPhone.
However, Samsung claims this drop in supply isn’t just because of Apple’s orders but rather in spite of it. They are attempting to reduce oversupply, sources are saying.
But still, 50 million chips for the iPhone is quite a hefty number. It makes us wonder if it is just for one specific model, or for several future models to come.
