    RUMOR: Next-gen iPhone to be powered by Apple A4-based chipset
    Monday, April 19, 2010

    "According to the Korea Times, which cites an anonymous industry executive, Apple will indeed discontinue its tradition of using Samsung-designed processors with its next iPhone," Kelly Hodgkins reports for The Boy Genius Report (BGR).

    "In its place, the phone will run a modified version of Apple’s A4 processor which just so happens to be proficient in handling 720p playback," Hodgkins reports.

    "It’s not a complete loss for Samsung considering it’s expected the electronics giant will be entrusted with manufacturing the chip, but no doubt Apple’s decision to keep mobile processor design in-house will effect Samsung’s bottom line," Hodgkins reports.
