IT House August 22 according to industrial chain news, Qualcomm handed over by Samsung contract 5G chip Cellong SDM7250 due to Samsung 7 nanometer process product rate problem, leading to Qualcomm 5G chip scrapped.
The 5G chips are scheduled to be launched in the first quarter of next year, but this is likely to affect Qualcomm's release pace because of Samsung's 7-nanometer product rate, sources said. It has been reported that Qualcomm plans to launch an affordable 5G chip, which allows handset makers to lower the price of 5G handsets to 3000 yuan. Therefore, domestic mobile phone manufacturers are still looking forward to Qualcomm this product.
According to the source, there are not many OEM vendors currently in charge of the 7-nanometer production process, of which TSMC and Samsung are the main two, compared with Samsung, the product yield of the Taiwan product is obviously higher, and the high-pass has made this part of the 5G chip to a Samsung to do so, On the one hand, high-pass doesn't want all the products to be charged, and the relationship between high-pass and samsung is also good. In addition, TSMC is currently the foundry of the world's main chip manufacturer. In addition to the high-pass order, the TSMC has received many orders from Apple and Huawei, which has allowed the high-pass 7-5 G chip to be affected.
Sources said that in addition to SDM7250, Qantom's planned mass production of Qantom X55 5G baseband in the second quarter will also be affected by Samsung's 7-nanometer technology yield. If Qualcomm can't solve the problem of good product rate, it may make mobile phone manufacturers such as Samsung, Apple, Millet, vivo, OPPO not have 5G baseband available in the future.
